A new £100,000 fitness suite at St Joseph’s College, Ipswich, has revolutionised the way in which the school aims to develop student athletes.

The facility is also designed to complements its highly-successful BTEC Sport and Exercise Science, Personal Training and Strength and Conditioning courses.

The 216 sq metre project involved renovation work and renewal of all equipment, creating an impressive studio housing a free weights area, heavy weights machines, cardio equipment, treadmills, Wattbikes, cross trainers, rowing machines and an interval training track.

Danielle Clarke, principal of St Joseph’s College, said, ‘This impressive facility will further enhance the college’s reputation as an elite sporting pathway, but will also be in general use, encouraging our younger boys and girls to embrace a healthy lifestyle.

“This is also an attractive facility for the college’s staff.”
