GLL welcomes dates and clarity on leisure reopening

Reacting to The Executive’s review of the Pathway Out of Restrictions, Regional Director of GLL Gareth Kirk said:

“The confirmed dates for reopening gyms and swimming pools are a vital step towards rebuilding public health and wellbeing. We at GLL have been anxious for some time now about the mental and physical health of our population after a year of restrictions on their ability to exercise. We can now begin preparing staff, reheating swimming pools and finalising Covid-19 protocols to ensure a secure return to indoor training on April 30.”

“There is no doubt that many challenges lie ahead on the road to recovery, not least for the health service in tackling hospital waiting lists and predicted missed cancer diagnoses. Encouraging people back into exercise and challenging them to live better, healthier lifestyles will be crucial to our build back. If we are to resume this position in the community, it is essential that our reopening is for good.”

“It is clear from the huge demand for outdoor fitness classes this week that people are desperate to get active again. People have spent too long sitting at desks and being inactive while working from home. Now is the time to begin helping our citizens look after their health again and we look forward to welcoming our many members back to do so.”
