Fitness fans set to it to fund outdoor gym
AGYM is fundraising to build a free outdoor activity space for residents.
Members and staff at Fitness4All, in Bollington, are hoping to build an outdoor gym which can be used by members of the community for free.
They need to raise at least £6,000 to fund the venture, which will enable people from across Bollington to keep fit without the need for gym membership.
Chris Rowlands, manager at Fitness4All, based at Adelphi Mill, said: “In April 2017 Fitness4All will have been open eight years and to celebrate we want to improve health of our village.
“We’re passionate about people being healthier, fitter and happier and that stands whether you’re a member of Fitness4All or not. The equipment will provide a range of cardiovascular, toning and wellbeing exercises suitable for all ages.”
The gym kicked off its the fundraising efforts by taking part in a 24-hour rowing challenge, with future fundraising events including a bake sale and running challenge.
The team are currently looking at locations for the new outdoor gym with the support of Bollington Town Council.
