New Look Leisure Centre!

Tylorstown is now home to the largest Leisure for Life gym in RCT – and the only indoor International Rugby Board-accredited 3G pitch in the Valleys,  thanks to £1M Council investment at Rhondda Fach Leisure Centre.

With bold ambition, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and its contractors have worked over the past year to deliver a centre of sporting excellence in the Rhondda Fach.

Opening on Monday (January 14), visitors can enjoy their firsts session at the new gym FREE of charge. Those who like what they see can also take out Leisure for Life membership, with FREE induction and NO joining fee.

The centre now boasts not one, but two exceptional sporting attractions – a huge new gym packed with equipment that cannot be found elsewhere in Wales and two indoor 3G pitches, which are fully accredited for contact rugby training and more.

The impressive refurbishment has also seen the creation of a brand new reception area and, in addition to the gym, a modern Spin Studio which will be interactive for users, allowing them to compete against each other and train in “virtual” landscapes.

Rhondda Fach Leisure Centre’s ground floor gym is now the largest of all nine of Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Leisure for Life gyms and features an 80-station facility, including  a huge cross-training rig, which is the largest in Wales.

It also features the largest range of plate-loaded fitness equipment, including chest, shoulder press and strength machines, and a massive range of running, rowing, step and biking equipment – along with a free weight area.

The gym and spin rooms, entered via a new and improved leisure centre reception area, provide the perfect complement for teams and clubs that want to enjoy the only indoor IRB-approved artificial pitches in the Valleys.

The two indoor pitches at the Centre have been inspected and accredited by the International Rugby Board, making them perfect for contact rugby training and more.

This means teams and players can take advantage of exceptional training and practice facilities on the pitches, whatever the weather, and develop their fitness and athletic aims in the gym.
