The City of Estevan has announced changes coming to the fitness centre at the Leisure Centre in response to a Town Hall meeting that was held at the beginning of May 2018. Through that meeting, a committee was formed.
"The Committee is our commitment made to the residents and fitness community, by providing a modern fitness and recreation facility," said Erin Wilson, Program Manager. "Their goal is to serve the athletic and recreational needs of the entire community and are committed to continuing to work with the community as we move forward in bringing this vision to life."
"The biggest thing we want to express is that the changes are ongoing. We are just in the process of collecting information form our users to try and create a facility that everyone will be happy with."
Some of those features include:
• card scanner entry system
• new squat racks
• glute/ham machine
• bumper plates
• improvement in storage area
• leg press
• incline and decline benches• preacher curl
• new cardio equipment
"The list that we provided are the items that we're looking at right now. We're just getting quotes from different companies and trying to make sure that we can get the right price with the right quality of equipment that we need for the users."
The City is hoping to implement the changes as quickly as possible.
"It is our goal to try and have the users see some changes that will occur sporadically. It's kind of a work in progress."
Wilson adds that they are excited to have this committee in place to give insight into what the users want to see.
