Parkwood Leisure & Sefton Council invest £118,000 in Crosby Leisure Centre gym refurbishment


Crosby Leisure Centre, operated by leading leisure provider Parkwood Leisure on behalf of Sefton Council, has completed phase two of its gym refurbishment, which has seen its Health Suite spa transformed into an extended gym area.


The newly completed second phase saw the largest investment with over £79,500 spent on Life Fitness equipment to replace the centre’s old cardio machines. This includes a total of seven new treadmills, five cross trainers, three upright bikes, two recumbent bikes and one PowerMill.


Following this, new Life Fitness resistance equipment has also been introduced including a multi-jungle cable system, replacement resistance for the smith machine, an arm curl, hip abductor/adductor machines, an olympic lifting rack & dual adjustable pulley system. £12,500 was spent on new flooring throughout the upper level of the gym which is home to the cardio and resistance area.


Phase one of the refurbishments were completed earlier this year in partnership with maintenance contractor Seddon Construction, marking the official opening of the new strength room gym extension. Hammer Strength equipment including a HD Elite Half Rack with platform, a dual adjustable pulley, and adjustable benches were installed, alongside new dumbbells and weight plates.

A functional training area was also built, with new equipment including punch bags and battle ropes.

Phase three of the facility’s renovations will take place next year, with a further £70,000 investment to include resistance equipment upgrades, plus 31 new indoor cycles from ICG® to enhance members’ group cycling experience.


Commenting on the refurbishments, Lee Carnwell, General Manager at Crosby Leisure Centre, said: “We are really excited about the gym refurbishments, and the additional benefits it will have on the local community and our members’ fitness journeys. The refurbishments have already received great feedback, and the continued investment shows our commitment to providing members with a positive experience that caters for a wide range of people’s needs.”


“After a tough few years for the fitness industry, we are proud to have bounced back so positively, with visitor numbers continuing to grow.”
