NEW Gym & Cycle Studio

Torfaen Leisure extends partnership with industry leaders Technogym, with state-of-the-art gym and group cycle studio upgrade.

Torfaen Leisure Trust is proud to announce a strengthened partnership with Technogym that will see the introduction of a new state-of-the-art gym at Cwmbran Stadium and group cycle studio at Pontypool Active Living Centre.

The new collaboration with the world leaders in gym and fitness equipment is a key development in Torfaen Leisure Trust’s mission to inspire and enrich healthier lives in Torfaen and will support improving mental and physical well-being outcomes of the Trust’s members and key stakeholders, including the NHS and Aneurin Bevan University Health Board.

This fresh investment forms the first part of an ambitious plan to significantly enhance Torfaen Leisure Trust’s facilities and service offering to its members, clubs and groups and other key stakeholders, as the Trust continues to progressively recover from the dual impacts of COVID-19 and high energy costs.

The new gym and group cycle studio powered by Technogym will be installed in December 2023. To give you a sneak peek of what’s coming, here are the artist’s impressions of the new developments:

All equipment at Cwmbran Stadium will be replaced with the latest equipment Technogym has to offer.

The new Excite line from Technogym makes training more fun and inspiring for any age or fitness level with its myriad workouts and countless entertainment options. Choose your Technogym Cardio session, based on your personal goals, and the virtual trainer will guide you through a one-on-one session, offering encouragement and suggesting the level of intensity, which you are free to follow or change. Our entire range of new cardio equipment will have these unique features.

Our new equipment includes,

  • Power Racks
  • Belt Squat
  • Excite Line
  • Selection Line
  • Pure Strength
  • Skill Line
  • 30 Group Cycle bikes with new immersive technology experience

Comment from Torfaen Leisure Trust Chief Executive Officer, Ben Jeffreys:

“We are hugely excited to have formed such a strong partnership with Technogym and our investment signifies the beginning of an exciting new era for Torfaen Leisure Trust.

“Over the past twelve months, we have made wholesale changes to how Torfaen Leisure Trust operates, including implementing new systems of obtaining and measuring feedback from our members.

“The feedback received clearly signalled the need to replace our ageing equipment and this announcement demonstrates our commitment to absorbing that feedback and taking action to provide the best possible experience to our members.

“We recognise there are many other aspects of our facilities which require investment, including new gym equipment for Pontypool Active Living Centre, but it is essential we manage our finite resources responsibly and that we make future investments as they become affordable.

“We are determined to make this ambition a reality at the earliest possible opportunity and our drive to maximise Torfaen Leisure Trust’s future potential is at the heart of everything we do as a team.”

Comment from Greg Haynes, Sales Director Field Clubs UK, TechnoGym:

“Technogym are very proud to extend the partnership with Torfaen Leisure Trust. We believe the investment made by the Trust will provide every opportunity for local communities to lead healthier lives and improve the wellbeing of all. We have been working extensively with the Trust ensuring we can provide the best facilities for all health and fitness goals.
