A GYM has re-opened after a huge refurbishment.

ClubActive at Thornton Recreation Centre has installed brand new state-of-the-art equipment at its site in Leaventhorpe Lane to give members the chance to make their workouts as technical or as simple as possible.

The equipment screens can be used to access Facebook, Twitter and fitness apps such as; Fitbit, Strava and also RunKeeper.

Gym-goers can also charge a smartphone, browse the internet or connect their own smartphone for video play back. TV shows and radio programmes are also available.

Phil Barker, assistant director for sport and culture said: "We will have a truly state of the art gym with facilities that are attractive to our members.

"I would like to encourage people to come and have a look at how good the facilities are."
