After beating cancer, Peter frequently uses the gym to keep fit and socialise, sharing:

“Since I had throat cancer 25 years ago I have tried to stay as healthy and active as possible. I’m 73 now and I had to stop playing cricket and badminton 6 years ago, but I didn’t want to become a couch potato, so I joined Everybody and began using the gym at Crewe Lifestyle Centre to keep fit. It’s also a great way to socialise and I find the atmosphere here is very friendly. I love the new gym. It’s like having new toys to play with.”

Dominic Crisp, Head of Operations at Everybody Health & Leisure, commented:

“As highlighted in the recent census data, published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), we are aware of the scale of deprivation and health inequalities in the Crewe area.

This makes this investment timely and will provide opportunities for the community to access state of the art equipment in an inclusive environment. We are so excited that the time has come to unveil the brand new gym facility and we welcome all people from the local communities.”
