You’ll never believe what we found!

So it’s been close to three months since a burst sewer pipe put us out of action for a couple of weeks and forced the closure of our beloved changerooms.

What’s taking so long, you ask? Here’s the rundown.

When repairing the damage caused by the sewer pipe, we discovered asphalt from where the original building entrance was all those years ago as well as remnants of the old squash court and viewing platform! We also identified the solid brick walls, and awkward steps into showers were limiting space and causing issues.

We also found the original brown and yellow tiles – can’t believe they ever went out of fashion.

What did all this mean? It meant we’ve needed to dig up the asphalt, knock down the brick walls, and cart off many a skip load of concrete to start replacing the pipes.

Given the extent of the works required, Council has decided to bring forward upgrade works, and so we are now getting brand new change rooms. Thanks Council! The change rooms are being completely redesigned and will be more family-friendly, environmentally-friendly, modern, accessible and inclusive.

It is estimated that the new change rooms will be up and running by spring. Yay! In the meantime, we have temporary private shower blocks located near the pool, with plenty of space to shower and get the kids changed as well. We have chosen to cover these shower blocks to combat the winter weather as best we can.

As a thank you for your patience, we are offering free Introduction to Reformer Pilates classes (starting on 11 June) to all members until the works are completed.

So get rid of those winter blues by warming up in our heated pools, spa and sauna and taking a group fitness class or hitting the gym.

Reformer Pilates Arrives This Week

We are exited to let you know that Reformer Pilates has arrived at Ascot Vale Leisure Centre. All full access members will have complimentary access to the five Introduction to Reformer Pilates classes starting on Tuesday the 11th June.

What is Reformer Pilates? 

Reformer Pilates is a type of resistance-based pilates that is performed on a Reformer Pilates bed. A Reformer Pilates bed is premium pilates equipment that is in bed-like frame, which rolls back and forth on wheels, within the frame. At the end of the bed there are foot bars and at the top of the bed there are straps with handles.

During the class you use your body weight and set a level of resistance of the springs, to build strength and activate your muscles. You may be asked to place your hands or feet within the straps and footbars depending on the exercise. All parts of the reformer equipment and class can be adjusted for different levels of fitness and skill.

What are the benefits of Reformer Pilates?

Reformer Pilates can improve your overall strength, balance, coordination and flexibility. As well as this, Reformer Pilates may provide relief from physical pain, such as back and joint pain. Reformer Pilates is also very beneficial for those who are looking to improve their posture and movement.

As a full body workout, you can expect to activate and strengthen the following areas of your body when participating in a class:

  • Abdominal Region
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Legs and Thighs
