Main Gym


New Sports Dome

A major new training facility at Aberystwyth University has opened following the installation of a new sports dome on Penglais Campus. Representing an investment of over £400,000, the new facilities offer state-of-the-art cardio equipment, and strength & conditioning apparatus supplied by Matrix Fitness. Further specialist equipment from Wattbike, SciFit, Concept, Rogue and Primal Strength provide our users with the very best kit on the market. Runners and cyclists can follow trails and routes anywhere in the world with the use of virtual technology, and climb some of the world's landmark buildings including the Eiffel Tower and the world's tallest building - the Burj Khalifa. 

The new facilities have something for everyone, from beginners to elite athletes and seasoned fitness enthusiasts to those who need to exercise to improve their health.

The work is part of an upgrade programme that will eventually see all the equipment being powered by the users rather than plugging into the mains electricity supply. The whole experience of using the gym is more friendly and welcoming, and the technology is designed to make exercising more enjoyable by engaging, motivating and challenging our customers. The facilities allow all our members to train in a great atmosphere, make friends, relax and achieve all their health and fitness goals.

A (20/30min) orientation is provided but not compulsory for those over 16's wanting to use the Fitness Centre.
