After eight months of online classes and home workouts, Life Leisure’s Barrow Park is reopening its doors to fitness fans once again.
Following the Government’s announcement that it is now safe to reopen gyms and swimming pools, the fitness provider has confirmed the centre will reopen on Monday, April 12.
This will include the return of swimming sessions, outdoor group classes and indoor gym sessions, where members will finally be able to get their hands on equipment such as rowing machines, weights and running machines.
Aidan Murphy, Head of Operations at Life Leisure Barrow Park, said: “We are excited to welcome back our members after such a long period of absence and uncertainty.
“Keeping active is vital for both our physical and mental health. While we’ve been able to provide online fitness classes and outdoor sessions, there will be nothing quite like getting back into the pool or working out alongside friends.”
All swim visits must be booked online, and where possible, members are encouraged to come ‘activity ready’ to reduce the demand on changing rooms while social distancing measures remain in place.
Aidan added: “We’ve looked at everything, from sanitisation stations, hands-free door opening and PPE for staff to equipment spacing, one-way systems and online booking for gym and class attendance – all to ensure members can train, swim, dance and get the physical workout they want, safe in the knowledge that social distancing and hygiene advice is being fully observed.”
