MIDHURST Rother College is opening a new fitness and well being centre which will be available for use both by students and the community.
The updated gym and sports facilities which open on November 18 will continue to be owned by the college but the operation and programmes will be managed by experts from the national healthcare organisation Nuffield Health.
Health and fitness professionals will oversee the launch of new fitness equipment, new workout space and development of wider services, including group fitness classes such as spinning, yoga, zumba and pilates, access to personal training sessions and free health MOTs to all members.
Chris Koffman, project leader and business development director at Nuffield Health said: “The college provides an invaluable service to its students and residents and we are keen to strengthen these relationships by providing a fantastic new gym facility, a busy class time table and expert support.
MRC business manager Kath Chard said: “The organisation has a long history of delivering the highest level of service and support throughout its network of hospitals and fitness & and wellbeing centres across the UK.
Their expertise will have a very positive impact on our students and members of our community.
“The investments we make together will enable us to offer a great timetable of fitness classes, access to the best equipment and the opportunity to work with experts in health and fitness.”
Memberships will be available on a monthly basis, priced at £25 each, with lower rates for families and students.
