John Turner from Anytime Fitness WGC is preparing to safely welcome back the members of the community, even offering new and existing members a free training plan to ease and support them back into a fitness regime.

The ‘Revive’ plan will offer in-club, at home and outdoor cardio workouts to help people transition back into the health club environment after a significant time away.

“We’re eagerly awaiting the chance to welcome back the community,” said John Turner. “The safety of the public is our number one priority and we hope people feel comfortable with the range of safety measures that will be in place.

“We want to make sure everyone feels supported when they return to our clubs and the training plan we’ve created is to help people gradually build up to their previous levels of fitness and get back into a routine.

"With darker nights and adverse weather, this has arguably been the toughest lockdown yet to stay active and we’re looking forward to helping improve the physical and wellbeing of the nation as we hopefully begin to emerge into more positive times.”
