A LEISURE centre has announced the opening of a brand-new cycle studio.
Havant Leisure Centre, run by Horizon Leisure Centres, is now home to a state-of-the-art cycle studio that’s double the size of its previous one.
It has been fitted with a virtual cycling system that enables more classes to take place.
The new system is not instructor-led but technology is used to provide voice-over instructions, synced to a choice of cycle-based movie scenes, projected onto a screen.
The studio has been decorated in a largely black and red colour scheme and has special lighting effects. The room also has a new sound system along with a dedicated stage for the class instructor.
Howard Broad, Horizon Leisure Centres chief executive said: ‘Cycling has become extremely popular in this country and we are delighted to be able to help meet the growth in demand.’
