Local leisure centres are helping their locked down members at home stay fit Posted On 08 January 2021

Online classes mean leisure centres and gyms can still operate outside of their centres, and local centres are taking this opportunity to keep their members as active as possible

 

Certain Grimsby, Cleethorpes and Immingham leisure centre managers have realized that a third national lockdown doesn’t necessarily have to mean a halt in exercise and their services to their customers, too. Online classes have meant these leisure centres can keep their operations running and pumping out sweat and Christmas-gained calories, whilst positively lifting their services to the next level.

 

The company who operates the centres in question, Lincs Inspire (along with Magna Vitae which runs Louth’s Meridian Leisure Centre) have welcomed their customers to stay active by logging onto fitness trainer–led online exercise classes.

 

The national lockdown only permits outside daily exercise within the residents’ local area, and also means the temporary closure of indoor pools and leisure centres until it is lifted.

 

A spokeswoman for Lincs Inspire has said: “Once again we find our doors temporarily closed whilst the country works together to overcome the virus. We are sorry that we are unable to be there for you at the start of this New Year, but we will be ready and waiting as soon as it is safe to reopen and welcome you back once again. In the meantime, we urge you to find a way to stay focused on your fitness for your physical and mental wellbeing.

 

“We have online classes to take part in from the comfort of your own home. These are available on our App and website either live or via catch up. More classes will be added to the programme, so please keep checking back for an exciting programme of fitness brought to you by our very own instructors.”

 

She added: “May we take this opportunity to thank you all members and customers for their ongoing support. Last year was extremely difficult for everyone, but we are staying focused on brighter times ahead and we look forward to seeing everyone back soon.”
