Olympiad Leisure Centre in line for a gym refurbishment as Council leisure investment continues

Published 24 May 2024

Wiltshire Council's investment in leisure centres across the county will continue, with gym refurbishments at the Olympiad in Chippenham to take place in July.

The Olympiad will be subject to a complete gym refurbishment to include full fitness equipment replacements, plus redecoration and the installation of replacement flooring.

The work will require the gym to be closed to users for the duration and is scheduled to take approximately four weeks to complete, with work starting on Monday 1 July.

There will also be improvements to the group exercise studio and cycle studio with upgrades to the networking in these areas to improve the reliability of the virtual class provision, and immersive lighting installed in the main studio. 

All leisure memberships enable the holder to access all 20 council operated sites, meaning users can access alternative gym facilities at nearby centres such as Springfield Campus in Corsham, Calne Community Campus and Melksham Campus whilst the Olympiad is unavailable.

Cllr Ian Blair-Pilling, Cabinet Member for Leisure, said: We are investing significantly in our fitness facilities across the county, and we're pleased to confirm that the Olympiad will be the next centre to benefit from these continued improvements.

These plans have been developed following feedback from our users and demonstrate our continued commitment to give our residents the opportunity to access well maintained and fit-for-purpose centres. We are keen to encourage people to continue prioritising their physical and mental health and well-being in a more enjoyable environment.

Whilst the gym closure may cause some disruption and inconvenience to centre users, gym goers will still be able to use our other nearby sites to have their workout. We hope that the finished result will provide a much nicer experience for our members and visitors.

Progress is also being made on developing a new leisure centre for Trowbridge. There are also plans to make changes at more of the county's leisure centres, and more information will be shared on that in due course.
