How much have you missed indoor group exercising? Enough to book your first session just after dawn? 

 

Fusion Lifestyle and South Hams District Council have annouced that in line with the government roadmap, indoor group exercise will return to Ivybridge, Dartmouth, Totnes, and Quayside Leisure Centres from 17th May.

To mark the occasion and welcome early morning fitness fans back indoors, special classes will be held at 5.45am at Ivybridge Leisure Centre (BODYPUMP™ and Group Cycle) and Quayside Leisure Centre (Group Cycle). Classes can be booked via the Fusion app.

In England, pre-Covid 4.86million people took part in group exercise each week. A significant proportion of UK residents rely on this activity as means of exercise for their health and wellbeing.

The restarting of indoor group exercise at all Fusion Lifestyle centres the area means that residents can enjoy the full range of Les Mills classes again including BODYPUMP™, as well as Zumba, yoga, Pilates, indoor cycle and all their other favourites. The good news doesn’t stop there, for those who have been enjoying working out in the fresh air, outdoor group exercise classes at Ivybridge Leisure Centre will continue too.

The centres will continue to operate in line with government safety guidelines and those planning to visit will still be required to book and pay online, to ensure contact is minimised at each centre and allowing for the track and trace process to be implemented. Gym users and group exercise participants will be asked to arrive ready to work out, ready to go. These measures, combined with meticulous cleaning routines, are designed to keep customers safe and offer complete confidence to use the facilities when they return to the centre.

Cllr Jonathan Hawkins South Hams District Council’s Executive member for Health and Wellbeing said: “This is great news for the South Hams. It's such a positive step for the physical and mental wellbeing of our residents.”

Anthony Cawley, Director of Operations at Fusion, said: “It’s a really positive step to be able to restart indoor group exercise classes. We know how popular group exercise is and we’re excited to offer this one-off early class to celebrate the full return of our classes. Our instructors can’t wait to get back to offering the full timetable of classes. We are really pleased that we will be able to continue to offer some outdoor classes too, making sure we’re giving our members as much choice as possible.”

All centres will be open daily, but please refer to the individual centre’s websites for opening hours. Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance, via download of the Fusion Lifestyle app or visit www.fusion-lifestyle.com to register and use the online booking facility.
