FREE day gym passes are on offer as the council’s gym provider celebrates completing a £1.2million makeover of the facilities.

Sports and leisure operator, Everyone Active, officially took over the management of Somerset West and Taunton (SWT) Council’s leisure facilities in August. As part of the partnership, Everyone Active and SWT committed to investing more than £1.2 million to improve the range of facilities in the area, which is now complete.

The gym facilities across Blackbrook Leisure Centre and Spa, Wellsprings Leisure Centre and Wellington Sports Centre have benefitted from new smart Technogym equipment.

There is also a new cycling studio at Blackbrook and new changing rooms at the centre in Wellington.

The gym provider says all the leisure facilities have also undergone a range of aesthetic enhancements to offer an all-round improved fitness experience.

To mark the completion, Everyone Active is offering free day guest passes, free swimming lessons at Taunton Pool, and a free round of golf at Vivary Golf and Adventure Centre to local people.

Mark Washington, contract manager at Everyone Active, said: “We are pleased to share that all works to upgrade the leisure facilities since we took over are now complete.

“We wanted to offer our customers industry-leading fitness equipment and new and refurbished facilities to create an excellent environment to get active, so we are delighted with the result and hope the local community is too.”

The free sessions will be available until Saturday, November 30.
