A £1.1 MILLION project to refurbish Conwy’s fitness facilities is underway, with Llandudno Junction Leisure Centre the first of four refurbishments to be completed.

Llandudno Junction Leisure Centre now offers the latest fitness facilities for all capabilities and fitness levels. The gym has been equipped with a brand new state of the art Technogym equipment, and a former squash court and the first floor balcony have been converted into practical training areas.

The investment will support the highly successful National Exercise Referral Scheme and Cardiac Rehabilitation programme, and help attract new customers and Junior Fit Conwy members.

Cllr Louise Emery, Cabinet Member responsible for Leisure, said: “Encouraging people in Conwy to be healthy and active is a council priority. Having the latest fitness equipment available to use at affordable prices is an important step in achieving this. The new facilities at Llandudno Junction look great, and I’m looking forward to the other three schemes being completed.”

Cllr Sue Shotter, who represents the area, and is a member of the gym said: “This is a good investment and a great idea. It is important everyone in the area should have access to high quality facilities.

Being fit is important for us all and improving facilities will encourage more people to take exercise and improve their health. It is also provides more income for the council which will help keep the gyms sustainable.”

Cllr Mike Priestley, who also represents Llandudno Junction, said: “I am delighted with the investment in the Llandudno Junction gym. The feedback I am receiving us that this investment has been welcomed by the members and will attract new membership and hopefully encourage more healthy lifestyles.”
