The latest phase in the re-development of Rhyl Leisure Centre has been completed.
Denbighshire County Council has opened the centre’s 25-bike Group Cycle Studio which features tailored sound and lighting systems.
The studio will offer 15 group cycle classes per week, including early morning and evenings, as part of a new timetable.
Cllr Bobby Feeley, the Council’s lead member for Well-being and Independence, said:
“This studio is the latest addition to Rhyl Leisure Centre which has undergone a significant £1.2m re-development over the past 12 months.
“We are truly proud of our track record in investing in our leisure facilities, at a time when many other councils are considering closing such facilities.
“We recognise the benefits of our facilities in improving the health and well-being of our residents through making our communities resilient, which is a priority for the Council.”
Group Cycle is a non-impact activity which puts very little stress on knee hip and ankle joints and is one of the highest burning calorie studio sessions available, with the rider being able to tailor the workout to their ability by adjusting their own bike.
The final phase of the re-development will see the centre’s new gym open on July 3 and features the latest Technogym cardio and resistance equipment with virtual outdoor training routes.
New equipment includes Skill Runs, which allow runners to perform parachute and sled training, and a stair climber.
The centre’s changing rooms have also received a complete upgrade and will be open on July 3.
