As lockdown eases we can once again enjoy feeling fit and healthy as we head back to our local leisure centres for a swim, fitness class or gym session.
And safety measures at Everyone Active’s 10 leisure centres in Leicestershire have been given the best possible endorsement after customers flocked back following their recent reopening.
Both swimming pools and gyms reopened on April 12 with many visitors taking advantage of the renewed opportunities to exercise. It is hoped attendances will be further improved by the return of group exercise classes, which recommenced this week.

Safety has been Everyone Active’s priority throughout the pandemic and a host of strict operational measures are in place, including rigorous cleaning regimes, timed activity sessions and one-way systems to help with social distancing.
The Government’s roadmap includes detail on which facilities can reopen within each step, meaning some may not be available in the first instance.

Dan Hicks, area manager for Everyone Active, said: “Keeping centres Covid-safe is our highest priority and our dedicated staff are continuing to take all necessary steps to ensure we meet and exceed Government guidelines.
“Customers are able to enjoy our excellent facilities in the knowledge they are in a safe environment in which stringent operational measures and regular cleaning are in place.”
Meanwhile, the lido at Hood Park Leisure Centre is due to open on Saturday, May 29 – a date in keeping with previous years which takes into account an ongoing refurbishment of facilities.
The building of the state-of-the-art Whitwick and Coalville Leisure Centre continues and is scheduled to be completed by summer 2022.
