Highfield Park Trust is delighted to announce the arrival of AB SALUTE GYM to the Highfield Park Centre from 1st July 2024.

AB SALUTE GYM is a family run business managing a chain of six other gyms in Bishop’s Stortford, Braintree, Brentwood, Chelmsford, Lakeside, and Romford.  They will bring a wealth of fitness, health, and wellbeing knowledge to St. Albans.

The Centre will be closed for a period of time whilst AB SALUTE complete an extensive refurbishment. During the refit, the Multi-Use Games Area will remain open and hirers are encouraged to contact AB SALUTE GYM directly for further information.

Tim Abbott, Chair of Highfield Park Trust, said:

The Trust is extremely excited to be working with Colin and his team.  It has been a privilege to hear his ideas for the Centre evolve and we look forward to supporting him in realising his ambitions for Highfield.  His refurbishment will reinvigorate the Centre and ensure that it becomes an outstanding gym, fitness centre and social space.  It will make Highfield Park a better destination for our visitors.

This is an important moment for the Trust. The Highfield Park Centre underpins our work and our ability to keep improving Highfield Park.

Lastly, I would like to thank the YMCA for their previous tenure and support over many years.

Colin Hall, Managing Director of AB SALUTE GYM, said:

We are immensely proud that Highfield Park Trust are giving us the opportunity to bring unique facilities to the area. We have extensive ideas for the centre, with a complete renovation to the building we are going to inject the most prestigious gym equipment in the world from Gym80. This will make Highfield Park Centre the only one in the UK to have such facilities. Not only will we cater for the avid gym user, but we also have the most innovative golf simulator studio available. Luckily for us we also have the perfect 5-a-side pitch for any groups that like to sweat it out together and hone their skills. We are not finished there either, once we have had time to settle and build our community, we will be looking to open a Sports Bar/Cafe that will become the focal point for residents to meet up, enjoy some games and even WFH during the day.

We will continue to advise on progress as the refurbishment progresses.
