ANGLIA Ruskin University’s Helmore Campus in Cambridge has extended and refurbished its fitness suite to improve the fitness experience for students and staff. The investment, which is part of the


university’s commitment to innovation and ongoing development, saw the gym completely refurbished in two weeks to be ready for the new term. The work included demolishing a wall to increase the size of its gym to 189sq m in order to accommodate additional equipment. With three sites in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough and the recent addition


of a campus in London, Anglia Ruskin University, home to over 17,000 students, is one of the largest universities in the east of England. To keep pace with innovation the university has invested more than £122m in the campuses over the last five years, with a further £98m planned for the future. The Helmore gym showcases 10 Precor


cardio machines, including the new Next- Generation Experience Series Treadmill. It features two upper body Vitality Series Selectorised Single strength stations, four Vitality Series Selectorised dual station units and a selection of Icarian strength


services and offering to our faculty and students. The refurbished gym and upgrade of equipment is in line with our strategy to increase the fitness experience for both students and staff. It not only provides us with a top-of-the-range facility but will also help when recruiting new students,” says Laura Harman, sports facilities co-ordinator at Anglia Ruskin University. “The Preva networked fitness capabilities


give students the ability to input their goals and track their improvements and will help improve the performance of Anglia Ruskin’s sports teams, as well as the general health and wellbeing of all its members.”
