Bury St Edmunds Leisure Centre’s new studio has been opened by former staff member and exercise class regular Lynn Licence to help it meet a growing demand for fitness classes.

Abbeycroft Leisure, which manages the Centre in partnership with St Edmundsbury Borough Council, reinvested £88,000 to expand its studio space to meet growing demand for its popular exercise classes.

At Bury St Edmunds Leisure Centre exercise classes were at capacity and there is a need to expand classes. Abbeycroft has knocked through a wall in studio 1 into squash court number 3 to create a larger area for supersize classes. This will create up to 15 extra spaces per class. For example its very popular Yogalates class is at capacity and the new supersize studio will create an extra 30 spaces.

As a leisure trust and social enterprise award winning Abbeycroft ploughs all profits made back into providing health and fitness.

Sue Bull, centre manager, said: “This new studio space will give us much-needed capacity to enable more members of our community to enjoy classes here at the Centre.”
