New facilities at leisure centre
THE town’s charity-run leisure centre has unveiled its new £1million gym in time for New Year fitness regimes.
Bollington Health and Leisure is run by a group of trustees and relies heavily on fundraising.
Its gym has undergone a major refurbishment and doubled in size, with more equipment and a new layout.
The new facility boasts contemporary cardio, free weights and resistance machines, air conditioning, music system and a second fitness studio.
Kevin Broome, deputy manager, said: “The staff and all members at the centre are extremely proud of the new facilities and are looking forward to hosting new fitness classes in the New Year including Boxercise and Pump It as well as more of the favourites like Kettlercise, Spinning and Pilates.
“We know it is hard to stick to a fitness regime especially with the cold winter months moving in, so what better way to get motivated with an amazing, modern gym, new classes and facilities to help keep you on track and combat the indulgent festive period.
“The centre has been serving the community since 1977 and continues to cater for all the health and fitness needs of the people of Bollington and surrounding area.
“The centre operates as an independent charity and is managed by a volunteer board of management who have worked tirelessly alongside the centre staff to transform the centre into what it is today.”
Residents can view and use the new facilities this Saturday, January 9 and Sunday, January 10 from 10am to 4pm.
There will also be chance to win free memberships and other giveaways and talk to gym instructors.
