Nicola Blackburn a customer from Everybody @ Alderley Park commented, “I’m back at Alderley Park Gym. I’ve used the gym and attended Spin, Yoga and Body Pump for 3 weeks now and it’s so good to be back. There is so much space due to moving equipment into the sports hall and upstairs studio that I feel very safe. The one way system, deep cleaning rota, new exits and sanitiser stations adds to the sense of safety. I feel safer here than in shops and restaurants.”
Lindsay Orlowoski-Hatton a member at Holmes chapel Community Centre commented, “I use Holmes Chapel Community Centre – I have loved being back, it has improved my mental health when it has been extremely difficult during lockdown and seeing other friendly faces in the gym and classes has been fantastic. Thank you for giving back some kind of “new normal” social aspect again and putting a smile back on my face”
Tommy Heath a member at Crewe Lifestyle Centre and Shavington Lesiure Centre commented, “I have used Crewe and Shavington centres multiple times since the reopening and have found them very well organised, clean and a pleasure to use.”
Thomas Barton, executive director at Everybody commented, “We have worked tirelessly over the last 6 months to make sure our leisure centres are following government and governing bodies guidelines to remain Covid 19-Secure so we could open safely. It is great to hear from our customers that their overall experience has been positive and they are confident in returning to our leisure centres for exercise.
He added, “ It is really important now more than ever that we lead active and healthy lifestyles and our customers in Cheshire East are enjoying working out in our gyms and classes. We look forward to welcoming more customers back in September, in particular swimmers to our indoor pools.”
This feedback has contributed to the decision to increase gym sessions from 45 minutes to 90 minutes from 1st September, as well as increasing the amount of group fitness classes on the timetable for across all centres.
Everybody is due to reopen Congleton Leisure Centre, Holmes Chapel Leisure Centre, Middlewich Leisure Centre and Poynton Leisure Centre on the 1st September.
The leisure charity is also welcoming more swimming customers back with 7 pools reopening on 1st September and the remaining on 7th September along with swimming lessons.
