Gym Kit Refurb Update - Thursday 16 December

Our new Matrix gym kit arrived yesterday morning and we have been working really hard to get it all installed in time for re-opening Herts Sports Village gym tomorrow morning. Unfortunately time has run away with us and even after working tirelessly for two days straight, we will not be in a position to open the gym at 06:30am tomorrow as originally planned with your health and safety in mind.

In order to get all the kit in place and everything as clean as a whistle, our Sports Village Gym will now be opening at 08:00am on Saturday 18 December. Due to logistical challenges, a few pieces of kit will be with us in the next few days but the majority of kit will be ready for you to use when we re-open the gym Saturday morning.

Group exercise classes will still be on as usual tomorrow and remember you can still use the Oval Gym on College Lane Campus whilst we are closed.

Gym Refurb - Thursday 9 December

We're excited to announce that Christmas has come early for our gym and users. After months of planning, our gym is getting a much needed kit revamp. This was originally scheduled to happen in September, but with shipping delays our planned revamp was pushed back to December. We apologise for such short notice but we have just received confirmation that this is going ahead.

Our new gym kit install will happen on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 December. 

The install will see all the latest equipment from our partners Matrrix including a full revamp of all our cardiovascular kit, pin-loaded resistance and free weights. Our install will also see some new and exciting pieces of equipment based on your feedback!

How does the gym revamp affect my gym visits?
To allow for our new install, our Sports Village gym will close on Wednesday 15 December at 09:00am and will re-open on Friday 17 December at 06:30am. 

During this time, members will have access to our other site (usually for University of Hertfordshire students and staff only), The Oval Gym on College Lane Campus in Hatfield.

Although it is a smaller facility, there is a good range of CV, resistance kit and free weights.

Unfortunately, no physical group exercise classes will be running at the Sports Village during these two days. However, you can still log onto our HSV Book app to keep up your fitness routine with our on demand classes featuring your favourite instructors.

How do I get to the Oval Gym?
The Oval Gym is based on College Lane Campus and the entrance is just off of Bishops Rise. You will be able to park free of charge in the car park outside of The Oval. Just give your vehicle registration number to the staff at the Helpdesk in order for it to be added to the ANPR system.
