Potters Bar gym hosts charity open day today

A SPONSORED ‘spinathon’ will be among events being staged at a Potters Bar gym today (Saturday) to raise vital funds for the Herts Air Ambulance.

Instructors at Parkwood Heath and Fitness Centre are organising a range of activities as they host a charity open day.

Non-members are being encouraged to pop in and try the Darkes Lane gym’s facilities or take part in classes, from cross-training circuits to Zumba, free of charge.

Keen “spinners” will see how long they can go on for on the stationary spinning bikes, while the second floor cafe will host a selection of stalls.

General manager Michael Supple said: “I am really looking forward to the day; there will be loads of great classes to try out, and stalls and refreshments in the cafe.
