A range of fitness equipment has been installed at Aberavon Beach to give users an all-round workout while enjoying the accompanying fresh air and sea breezes.

The outdoor gym in the sunken gardens at the seaside location also includes safety surfacing. The equipment remains fenced off for the moment due to the ongoing pandemic.

The equipment has been funded by Knights Brown, the construction company which carried out the recent multi-million pound coastal defence works at the Aberavon Seafront under the Welsh Governments Coastal Risk Management Programme, as part of the company’s commitment to providing community benefits from the work.

The defence works have secured the iconic seafront and promenade against coastal erosion ensuring people can continue to enjoy visiting the beach area for many years to come.

The Gym equipment includes a calisthenics centre, a sit-up bench, a step-box multi gym, parallel bars and a chest press and pull-down exerciser.
