New Fitness Timetable Starts 3rd June

Our summer fitness timetable will be starting from Monday 3rd June.

We’ve re-introduced the very popular Bootcamp for the summer months. Bootcamp, will be taken by one of our gym instructors and will run on Monday evening from 19:00 – 19:45.  We have also made several amendments with regards to class timings, which should benefit all our members and customers.

With regards to Virtual we have some very exciting news. After a very successful trial session, we’re pleased to announce that we’ll be introducing Virtual Sprint into the timetable. Sprint is a 30 minute workout of high intensity designed using an indoor bike to achieve fast results. Les Mills sprint is built on the science of high intensity interval training (HIIT).

Sprint will be replacing the previously timetabled Sh’bam.

New timetables are now available to pick up from Reception. To book head over to our website or call reception on 01204 488100.

Further Success For Our Walking Footballers

It’s three years now since we formed our walking football programme which today boasts four weekly sessions and a registration of sixty eight players. We accommodate all football needs whether it be social sessions, friendlies, tournaments and league options.

Last August we formed our very first league team to enter the Curzon Ashton six-a-side league which spanned over seven months and twenty four matches. Previously, our pool of players have entered numerous tournaments picking up success at the Chorley Cup ‘winners’, Lancashire Cup winners along with some of our players now representing BWFC and the Northwest County teams at O50’s and O60’s.

It gives us great pleasure to share with you more walking football success as the Bolton Arena team went on to claim the Curzon Ashton league title on the very last day, last game and final two minutes of the season.

A 2-1 victory over arch rivals Nash Amblers in a title shootout game saw the team lift the trophy and claim yet more thorough deserved honours.

Pictured are: (back row) David Tonge, Derek Howarth, Andy Clarke and Ian Thomasson. (front row) David Mort, Chris Kershaw © and Shaun Mulvaney. Not in the picture but also in the squad Sean Roddy, Ian Grozdanovic-Whittle and Gilson Rogers.
