Often described as Hereford’s best kept secret, thePoint4 leisure centre is undergoing a substantial refurbishment on 8 Р9th November with over 60 new pieces of gym equipment on the way.

The team is particularly excited to be the very first in Hereford to install a Jacobs Ladder, offering a full body workout and a huge calorie burn of up to 650kcals in 30 minutes.

The refurbishment is designed to make sure gym goers can keep their workouts dynamic and fresh with new equipment that includes The Concept2 Ski Erg, upgraded cardio machines, new resistance options and a brand new Functional Training Rig. 

That’s as well as the intriguingly named Tyre Flip 180, which is new to thePoint4, as well as the addition of another cable machine, hack squat, glute drive, hip adduction/abduction and more.

Executive Principal, Lucy Proctor, said, ‚ÄúWe are so pleased to be able to invest in the future of thePoint4, not only because it will provide state of the art facilities for our students and our gym members, but also because thePoint4 plays such an important part in the development of our students.‚ÄĚ

To explore the newly refurbished gym and try the exciting new equipment, head along to the open day on Sunday 26th November from 9am-4pm. 

The friendly fitness team will be on hand to explain how to use and how to get the best out of these machines for the ultimate workout.

ThePoint4 itself is unique, being owned by the Royal National College for the Blind (RNC) and run with the help of its students, who gain invaluable work experience.

All income generated by the gym, leisure and meeting facilities goes directly back to the RNC to help support visually impaired students from across the country.

The gym itself is fully accessible and everyone is welcome, whether you are a first-time gym user or an experienced pro. 

Membership prices reflect the inclusive nature of thePoint4, starting at a very competitive £27.50/month.
