Scotland’s largest Immersive Cycle Studio opens at Grangemouth Sports Complex
The largest immersive cycle studio in Scotland opens on the 24 April at Grangemouth Sports Complex.
Using the latest virtual technology and programming, the new cycle studio will take riders of all abilities on a fully immersive sensory adventure that elevates the indoor cycling experience to a world-class level.
Falkirk Council has worked with industry experts Alliance Leisure and Hutchison Technologies to bring this £500k investment to fruition.
Following the success of Scotland’s first-ever immersive cycle studio at the Mariner Centre in Camelon this puts the Falkirk Council area at the centre of digital fitness.
Grangemouth Sports Complex already has a thriving fitness community with a very popular group cycle programme and following. The addition of this state-of-the-art digital studio will allow even more people in Grangemouth and the surrounding communities access to a new and exciting way of exercising.
Large space with 40-plus bikes
The new studio provides a large space to train with more than 40 bikes available. In a cinema-scale experience, the 3.1m tall screen showcases digitally created worlds and immersive sound that customers can cycle through, taking their 40-minute multi-peak cycling workouts to a different level and burning some serious calories!
Using the latest music and displaying beautiful and challenging terrains from around the world, Les Mill’s TRIP classes are known for their high energy, and motivational atmosphere, and are designed to push participants to their limits.
As well as classes led by their usual instructors, full virtual cycle workouts with a digital coach are also on offer across the 60 classes running each week providing safe, effective, and highly motivating sessions.
Councillor Cecil Meiklejohn, Leader of Falkirk Council said: “Building healthier communities remains a major objective for us and this investment will allow cyclists access to some of the most exciting and dynamic experiences available.
Largest in Scotland
“It will offer the largest immersive bike space in Scotland with more than 40 bikes for use in a large studio environment and can be used by anyone over the age of 16.
“Having not one but two of these facilities in the local area puts us on track to become a top-class centre for a fully immersive cycling experience in Scotland. This is an investment for the future that benefits both casual fitness enthusiasts and top-end athletes alike.”
