DVC Sports on the campus of Dearne Valley College (DVC) has taken delivery of new gym equipment following recent extension works.
After securing £225,000 of funding, O&P Construction Services Limited based in Wath completed the extension works back in 2011, designed by Globe Architects. The extension works included a single storey extension to house extra gym equipment and a free weights area.
The Wath-based sports centre has added a number of new pieces of gym equipment to its collection to include; spinning bikes, a bodycore trainer, resistance equipment, a new Smith press, The Big Iron Squat Rack, new treadmills and body arcs amongst other pieces.
Adam Stancey, DVC Sports Centre Manager commented:
“The extension to the fitness suite and the addition of new gym equipment will allow us to extend our offer and services to the local community. We will continue to promote health and sport in college in line with Government initiatives”.
The new extended fitness suite facilities were officially opened last year by local Olympic hopeful Amy Oliver. Amy (24) a British Archer from Swinton and former DVC student is currently training and working towards the London 2012 Olympic Games.
On Tuesday 24 January 2012 from 4.30pm to 7.30pm, the College’s Open Evening will take place, visitors will have the chance to look around the college, chat to course tutors and support staff as well as finding out about the many vocational courses on offer. The new fitness facilities will also be open for visitors to have a look around, plus an opportunity to win a free six month’s gym membership.
