The centre has also invested in a new Tanita body analyser which accurately measures both body fat and body mass giving a true indicator of your inner health.

When monitored over time, the analyser can show the impact of any fitness regime or weight-loss programme, helping you to achieve your optimal fitness and improve your health and wellbeing.

Coun Cath Homer, cabinet member with responsibility for leisure at Northumberland County Council, said: “The Swan Centre gym has some of the industry’s most innovative equipment which can be used by all abilities. The centre also has a fantastic team of fully-qualified staff and a range of fitness classes for all ages and fitness levels.”

She added: “We hope that members of the community will come along to the open day, have a look around and find out more about how we can help them achieve their own personal health or fitness goals.”
