The space will be painted and fitted out with rubber matting and mirrors.

“Thanks to customer feedback and our own customer survey, we are pleased to be giving customers more variety and workout space.

“The new gym layout will double Cupar’s gym space and allow the option of free body and light-free weight movements as well as the introduction of some new equipment.”

The main gym will remain open during the works which are scheduled to take one week.
