Dalby gym kicking back into gear after coronavirus
ONE of Dalby’s most popular gyms has swung back into action now the Covid-19 restrictions have lifted after a three-month suspension.
PCYC Dalby acting club manager Sergeant Lindsay Small said it was wonderful to have the gym open again.
“We are so pleased to welcome members safely back into the club, with all gyms complying with the fitness industry Covid-safe plan,” Sgt Small said.
“We now have a booking system in place, as well as increased cleaning and hygiene requirements and restricted opening times, but all our members understand these new protocols and are just happy to return to the gym.”
Gym supervisor Sally Mauch is also thrilled to welcome members back to kickstart their fitness goals once again.
“During Covid-19 it has been great staying connected with our fitness community through our online Activ8 @home program,” Ms Mauch said.
“It provided people with an escape.
“Now we are just so glad to welcome our members back in person, and they are so keen to be back.”
Gym member Laura Guerrini, who has been going to the PCYC Dalby gym for more than a year, said it was exciting to return to the centre last week.
“While the gym has been closed, I have stayed connected to the club and the community through Activ8 @home, which has been really important,” she said.
“I’m a person who needs motivation, so the weekly emails with HIIT workouts, nutritional advice, exercise tips and healthy recipes kept me motivated and accountable.
“Activ8 @home has been a wonderful resource for exercises and trying new recipes, but it has meant everything to me to return to the gym.
“I love the friendly, welcoming staff and the great community environment at PCYC Dalby.”
Gym sessions can be booked on the PCYC website.
The Activ8 @home initiative is supported by Arrow Energy.
