Peninsula Leisure Centre’s Gym Set to Go 24/7

Date

Monday, 8 August 2016

Release

Treadmills, exercise bikes and weights will be available around the clock when the Peninsula Leisure Centre’s gym starts operating 24/7 from this Saturday 13 August 2016.

The move to 24/7 access comes on the back of strong feedback from gym members, especially during Central Coast Council’s recent culture surveys.

Manager of Culture Phil Cantillon said the extended hours are a great example of how Council is adapting its services to meet the community’s changing lifestyle.

“With health and fitness such a big part of our residents’ lives these days, it’s important we provide them with as much access as possible to the Peninsula Leisure Centre’s facilities,” Mr Cantillon said.

“Opening the Centre’s gym 24 hours a day, 365 days a year means that our members can run, ride or lift their way to an active and healthy lifestyle whenever suits them.

“Last year we invested $200,000 to upgrade the centre’s gym equipment, so we’re keen to see our members give it more of a workout any time of the day or night.”

Any Peninsula Leisure Centre member who can currently access the gym can get a 24/7 access pass by simply completing a form and paying $25.

“We are very conscious of our members’ safety and a number of security measures are in place,” Mr Cantillon added.

“CCTV cameras will monitor the premises after hours, motion sensors and duress buttons have been installed, and only those members with access cards will be able to access the gym from the Blackwall Road entrance after hours.”
