The Queensway Gym refurbishment .
As part of the Welsh Goverment Sports facilities capital loan secured by Wrexham County Borough Council, the gym at Queensway has been refurbished and designed by Freedom Leisure to offer a unique opportunity for our customers to exsperience the world of strength and conditioning which is growing in popularity across the UK.
As well as offering a selection of resistance machines, we have added a further element of strength and conditioning kit for everyone - from everyday users wanting to get a bit fitter and stronger to sports athletes needing to maximise their potential.
In addition to the extended resistance conditioning area, there is now a brand new dedicated cardio vascular room with all your favourite aerobic equipment to improve your general fitness foundation.
Our vision is to provide a simple gym experience in a friendly safe and supportive training environment by offering a range of proven exercise equipment for everyone. We want to help our members train a little smarter to reap the rewards from effective workouts to enhance their lifestyle choices.Mark Glasson - Centre Manager
