Community Gym in Loddon

Attached is an article about the not-for-profit Community Gym in Loddon.

If you made New Year’s resolutions, chances are you have already broken or forgotten them but, if one of them was to get a little fitter, the Community Gym is here to help. Using a grant from Saffron Housing we want to publicise more widely what the Gym offers to everyone in Loddon, Chedgrave and the surrounding villages who wants to improve their health, fitness and mood in a safe and friendly atmosphere and under expert instruction. Watch out for our new website coming shortly. With the cost of living crisis it has become even more practical to join a local facility run entirely for the benefit of its members. The Gym is well equipped with all you might expect in a much larger commercial gym and it is on your doorstep. We continue to open on the days and times below but please contact us if you feel strongly that other times may be more popular or if you belong a group who would like a session designed especially for you. If you are one of our local retained firefighters and want to pass your annual fitness test the Community Gym is here for you. Equally, if you have medical conditions for example, high blood pressure or diabetes, your GP will happily give you a referral form for the Gym and Louise is qualified to design a programme especially for you. If the Gym Open sign is on the railings outside the Library on Church Plain, why not pop in and see for yourself what is on offer.

If we are successful with further grant applications we will enhance the Gym even further and may be able to offer free taster sessions. Watch this space. The Gym is currently open as follows:

Monday (afternoons) 1.45pm– 5.25pm; Tuesday (early evenings) 4.45pm-7.05pm; Wednesday (mornings) 9.00am-11.20am; Thursday (evenings) 6.00pm-8.20pm; Friday (mornings) 10.15am-12.35am.

As we are a relatively compact Gym you will still need to book via

Alternatively you can book a first session by ringing Louise on the number above.
