Opened April 2022
With the generous support of The National Lottery Communities Fund, we have been able to invest heavily in equipment to make exercising for those in our local community with a disability, less of a challenge.
We have converted a former disused area of the building, close to the main gym, and transformed it into a specific Functional Training zone. As part of this development - which has been part-funded by The National Lottery - we have installed new gym equipment making it a fantastic addition to our already excellent fitness provision.
Before the renovation
The new Functional Training Room
We have designated this space to be a quiet zone, which we believe will help those with sensory needs to feel more comfortable using the facilities. By providing a calm and quiet environment for exercise, we hope we can encourage members of our community with sensory issues to maintain their exercise levels and a result lead a healthier lifestyle. Whilst this area will specifically support people those with disabilities, we have also reworked the layout of the gym to ensure the space is accessible for all users.
For wheelchair users, we have added a new piece of equipment into the gym. Cardiovascular exercise can be difficult for those in a wheelchair, so following extensive research, we have purchased an Invictus Trainer. The Invictus Trainer is a treadmill for wheelchair users, designed to improve fitness, burn calories, condition shoulders and fine-tune pushing technique. Please click the link to find out more about this innovative piece of equipment invictus trainer.
The Invictus Trainer can be booked by calling Reception on 0118 981 1611. It can also be used as part of group exercise sessions as well if required – please speak to Reception to make a booking.
The Hurst School would like to thank to the The National Lottery Community Fund for their support with this project, and we look forward to helping the local community to to lead healthier lives.
