Gyms across the Welsh capital are set to get a major revamp

Gyms across Cardiff are set to be revamped thanks to a £3.4m funding boost.

The investment has been made by GLL, Cardiff Council’s leisure partner, which announced the first phase of the scheme is set to take place at gym facilities across the city.

In December 2016 it took over the day-to-day operation of eight facilities with a remit to refresh them and improve footfall while encouraging more people to get active at the same time.

The changes will be made over 18 months and money will be spent on improving various leisure facilities in Cardiff.

Four gyms will start to see improvements being made this month, with new Technogym equipment being installed in facilities such as Llanishen Leisure Centre, Maindy Centre, Western Leisure Centre and Pentwyn Leisure Centre.

Llanishen Leisure Centre will also see changes being made in the changing rooms.

New studios are also set to be developed, including a Group Cycle room.

The reception areas at all four centres are also set to be revamped.

Regional director at GLL, Juliette Dickinson, said: “Customers will have a better experience when using our centres.

“We are installing the latest gym equipment and refreshing the look and feel so our centres offer a brighter, more attractive visit.

“With a range of affordable options available for the whole community, including concessionary membership for the over 60s, students and businesses – plus city-wide access – we’re making leisure in Cardiff better.”

Cardiff Council Cabinet Member for Culture and Leisure, Councillor Peter Bradbury, added: “The council’s partnership with GLL was set out to ensure that residents will have access to high quality leisure services, while making savings to the ongoing budget agenda.

“The news of this investment is hugely positive and exciting for Cardiff’s communities, giving those who use our facilities an overall better experience and continued access to a wide range of sports and leisure amenities in their local areas.”
