The new multi-million Greenvale Leisure Centre in Magherafelt which opened its doors recently is one of the leisure facilities in Northern Ireland.

It offers a fantastic mix of health, fitness and well-being activities for the whole family, including Northern Ireland’s first 50m swimming pool, plus an exciting new water slide, play pool and a dedicated learner pool for coaching and swimming lessons.

There is also a rejuvenating thermal suite featuring sauna, steam room, four heated loungers, two snail showers and a feature ice station.

Greenvale also enjoys a state-of-the-art 100 station fitness suite featuring new 2012 generation Pulse Fitness equipment, that is self-powered and provides you with a personalised entertainment package including Freeview Television, iPod and iPhone compatibility.

There is also a comprehensive virtual trainer software program that educates, records and informs you of the best performance for increased motivation and targeted results

Participants can also enjoy an exciting, motivating class timetable with over 45 hours that will provide a mixture of fitness, relaxation and well being classes for all the family.

In additon, there is a four court sports hall and separate squash court providing the perfect mix of sports facilities including badminton, football, basket ball and netball.

There is an exclusive children’s only circuit gym and interactive fitness room featuring dance mats, Active wall and floor, a fun children’s soft play kingdom with a large multipurpose area for parties and a stylish coffee shop serving hot and cold snacks and beverages.

“Interest in the new leisure centre has been phenomenal and we have had in excess of 7,000 people within 14 days of opening,” said Robert Byrne, Centre Manager for Greenvale Leisure Centre.

“The reactions from the local community, councillors and other stakeholders has been fantastic. They are astounded by the quality of the centre and incredible facilities available.”

Magherafelt District Council in partnership with Pulse (the appointed leisure management operator) was committed from the start of the Greenvale Leisure Centre project to provide an exclusive facility at an inclusive price to the community. More than 1,600 households equating to over 10,000 adults and children have taken advantage of the £365 per household pre-opening membership deal.

“£1 a day membership for the whole family is such a strong opening offer but the uptake even surpassed our expectations,” added Mr Byrne. “It’s great to see such a mix of families joining, some of whom never been to a leisure centre before and are pledging to improve their lifestyle together as a family.”
