Pulse Fitness modernises new sports facility at Solent University

Solent University has officially opened its new sports centre with the support of Pulse Fitness as its dedicated fitness partner.

The new facility is part of the ongoing £100 million estate development plan transforming Solent’s East Park Terrace (EPT) campus to improve and modernise the university. It is home to three gyms, a spin studio, two exercise studios, a physiotherapy treatment room, sports hall and a dedicated basketball centre that is one of only two in the country.

The gym facilities boast the latest equipment from Pulse Fitness, which was appointed by Solent University as their dedicated Fitness Partner in 2017 for the next five years. The centre includes a high-performance facility for the university’s elite athletes, a dedicated teaching facility to be used by the university’s sports degree students and a 90-station, state-of-the-art gym for community use.

The community use gym is also home to an innovation area, which includes the very latest Pulse Fitness equipment such as the brand new CrossClimb and the VR Treadmill. To encourage collaboration and innovation, Sports Science students at the university will be invited to contribute ideas for future Pulse Fitness equipment and technology design and development.

Other equipment from Pulse Fitness includes their latest CV equipment, H-range strength line equipment, Olympic lifting racks, dumbbells, kettlebells and free-weights.

Martin Nailor, Head of Sport for Solent University, said: “The new sports facility marks a new era for our university and Pulse Fitness has proven to be an invaluable partner throughout this process.

“It has been a true partnership project, with even the smallest details given full attention. For us, it’s about providing a fantastic experience for all our students, particularly those on our sports science programmes, and we wanted to ensure everyone feels involved. Their equipment is some of the most advanced and reliable in the market and we are particularly excited about the innovation area within the gym.

“This new addition gives our students the chance to have their say and help shape the future of fitness equipment. What really impressed us about Pulse Fitness is that as part of the partnership, we have the ability to change things based on the needs and requirements of our students.”

Neil Mosley, Director of Education for Pulse Fitness, said: “It has been a really exciting project for us to be involved in and we are delighted to be Solent University’s fitness partner over the next five years.
“Our market-leading, quality equipment incorporates the very best in British design alongside some of the most innovative and advanced ideas from around the world, so we are confident that we can support both students and the local community alike in reaching their fitness goals.”

EXF Fitness also worked in partnership with Pulse Fitness and Solent University to supply brand new flooring throughout and three bespoke functional training rigs.
