We're Getting Fitness Ready!
We’re delighted that we now have the go ahead to reopen our sport centres and can confirm that we will be reopening Ebbw Vale and Abertillery sports centres from Saturday, 15th August 2020 initially to our monthly-paying members only.
Unfortunately, due to essential maintenance being carried out at the site that houses Tredegar sports centre we are unable to open the facility until Tuesday, 1st September 2020.
However we have extended our opening times at Abertillery and Ebbw Vale sport centres to accommodate members from Tredegar so that you can continue to work out at a time suitable to you.
As you know we froze all membership payments during lockdown and can confirm that we will be unfreezing direct debit payments from 1st September 2020. This means that you’ll be able to use the facilities during August, without additional cost.
We’ve been working hard during lockdown to improve our facilities and to ensure that they are safe and secure for all our customers and staff.
You’ll notice a number of changes when you next come to work out including:
§ Signage around the building to direct you to where you need to go;
§ Perspex screens in reception;
§ Clear demarcation on what equipment can and cannot be used;
§ Clear guidance on how we request you conduct yourself during your visit. To assist you in this, we ask that you familiarise yourself with our Customer Code of Conduct
§ Social distancing to be maintained throughout the facilities;
§ Hand sanitising stations situated throughout;
§ Contactless payment is encouraged and welcomed.
Our primary focus is to ensure your safety. This means that we will limiting the number of members that can use our facilities at any one time so we urge you to book early to avoid disappointment!
You will be requested to book your gym session, exercise class or swimming session via the Aneurin Leisure app. Please download this now at the App Store or Google Play. Alternatively book online at www.bglife.co.uk or please call reception who’ll be able to assist you.
You can find out about the classes we will be running by logging on to the app or online and book these directly.
Swimming sessions will also be available to book via the app however please note that currently we are not running swimming lessons due to the need to socially distance, and that our Ebbw Vale changing rooms are being upgraded and the repairs won’t be completed until the beginning of September. However, you can still enjoy your swimming workouts at Abertillery sport centre in the short term.
We’re working with our sports groups which are Covid-compliant to utilise our outdoor pitches and will continually reassess how we can extend our services over the coming months to all customers.
