3d Leisure has put the current lockdown to good use, by stepping in to help schools with their PE provision.
As its fitness instructors, aren't able to work at 3d Leisure-managed facilities, the operator has mobilised them to help keep kids physically active, by delivering virtual group exercise classes in schools.
Paul Ramsay, MD at 3d Leisure, told HCM: "The importance of exercise for children can’t be underestimated and it's been widely reported how children’s activity levels have dropped off during the various lockdowns we've endured over the last 12 months.
"With a team of instructors currently unable to work on-site, we've used the opportunity to offer our services to local schools and provide free group exercise sessions for their kids."
Those offering their services include Debbie Jones from 3d Leisure's Hearts Club in Crosby, who's been providing virtual sessions for the children at the Mosspits Lane Primary School (see photo).
"If you know a school that would benefit from some activity sessions, then drop us a message, we'd love to help," Ramsay adds.
Established in 1991, 3d leisure manages 100 gyms in the UK on a contract management basis.
