Strength and Conditioning Launch at PALC!

We’re excited to announce the launch of our BRAND NEW Strength and Conditioning Suite at Pontypool Active Living Centre located in the original Treasure Island facility. Along with the refurbishment of the room, we have invested in the purchase of top commercial equipment to provide a state-of-the-art training facility suitable to support grass roots and elite sport programmes. We have sought after recommendations from leading Strength and Conditioning provisions within the UK to ensure we selected a range of equipment that compliments training styles from CrossFit to Olympic weight-lighting and we are excited to bring this type of provision to Torfaen Leisure Trust and the community of Torfaen and beyond!

This project has been partly delivered through the support from Sport Wales in the form of a grant, however it has also been possible due to the support of our amazing customers. Due to your loyal custom, we have been able to re-invest and contribute to the cost of the provision through every penny you spend at our centres.

Our General Manager, Eleanor Roberts, said:

“I’m so pleased to introduce the Strength and Conditioning Suite to Pontypool Active Living Centre! This project has been implemented due to the limited offering within Torfaen and the wider community of a facility to cater for both grass roots and elite sports performers and provide a provision of such quality to support all sporting activities. We look forward to introducing the facility to our valued clubs and groups for the advantages of private bookings to advance their current training programmes. Additionally, we look forward to welcoming our current members as part of their memberships the opportunity to train within the Strength and Conditioning Suite to support their training preferences which adds to the benefits of becoming a TLT member”.

Our Fitness Manager, Jamie Baber, said:

“I am really looking forward to utilising the Strength and Conditioning Suite to increase our offering to our members! We will be looking at adding additional classes within the Suite and provide 8–10-week programmes to help customers achieve their fitness goals. We are really pleased we can offer the use of the Strength and Conditioning Suite to current members during public access sessions. If you are interested in taking a look at the facility and signing up for one of our memberships, please pop in and speak to a member of our team.”
