The Sports Super Centre is excited to announce to our members, guests, and the wider community, that we will be opening the doors to a brand new gym and spin bike studio in 2018.

We are pleased to reveal that world-renowned, leading fitness brand, Life Fitness Australia, has won the contract to modernise the centre’s current gym. The Sport Super Centre will be in only the best company, with Life Fitness Australia recently completing the brand new Brisbane Broncos High Performance Centre at Red Hill, as well as supplying the majority of Queensland’s elite training facilities, including Bond University, Brisbane Lions, Cricket Australia and Queensland Reds.

Located in the same area as the current Sports Super Centre gym, the fully upgraded open-air facility will showcase “world-class” and “state-of-the-art” cardio equipment, cable machines, free weights, pin-loaded weight machines, plate machines, racks and weight platforms, and an athletic rig.

The current spin bikes in our RPM Studio will also be replaced with the industry-leading Body Bike Australia Supreme models.

The Sports Super Centre’s Director, Brendan Flynn, said 2018 was going to be a huge year for the Runaway Bay centre.

“This gym upgrade will position the Sports Super Centre as one of the leading health, fitness and sporting excellence facilities in Queensland,” he said.

“No matter what level our members and guests are at in terms of their health, fitness and training, they will be enjoying the same calibre of facilities as athletes from the Brisbane Broncos, Gold Coast Titans, Cricket Australia and the Queensland Reds. That’s a very exciting thing for me to be able to say.

“We’re extremely enthusiastic to be able to provide state-of-the-art facility to our members, guests and school students. We welcome anyone who is interested to come on in and check out our new gym when it opens.”

Mr Flynn said the opening of the new gym was timed perfectly with two major international sporting events being hosted at the Sports Super Centre next year.

“Not only will we be hosting athletics, hockey, beach volleyball and triathlon athletes from around the world as an official training venue for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, but we’ll also be hosting many other global sporting events, including the Gold Coast 2018 World Parachuting Championships,” he said.

“In addition to the more than $5 million recently spent on our accredited track and field and hockey facilities – and our 50m pool refurbishment – this new gym will only add to the Sports Super Centre’s ability to provide a truly world-class health, fitness and sporting experience for people of all ages and abilities.”

The Sports Super Centre is expecting its spin bikes will be installed by before Christmas 2017, with the gym currently scheduled for completion within the first quarter of 2018.

In the coming weeks and months, the Sports Super Centre will keep all stakeholders informed of any further developments regarding the new gym, and how the fit-out may impact on members, sporting groups and school guests.
