DW Fitness Blackburn
For gym members and staff at DW Fitness Blackburn to get in a spin, it will give East Lancashire Hospice a big boost.
It will be the second year the town’s largest gym and sports facility has supported the hospice’s Corporate Challenge. And the highlight is again likely be the sponsored Spinathon which will be publicised on DW Fitness’s social media platforms and around the centre.
Phil Walker, of DW Fitness, said: “The Corporate Challenge enables staff and gym members to come together and raise money for East Lancashire Hospice at the same time as encouraging team building throughout our operation. “We enjoy taking part because it’s an event that enables the club to support and bring attention to an amazing cause.”
DW Fitness has set a target of £500 but depending on how many gym members take up the challenge the bar could be raised even higher during the summer.
For anyone thinking of joining the gym – and the challenge – DW Fitness is easy to find on Haslingden Road between Guide and Fishmoor Reservoir close to Royal Blackburn Hospital. For non-drivers it is served by the 244 bus route from Blackburn town centre.
It has an impressive range of facilities from a state-of-the-art gym floor with cardio and resistance machines to a swimming pool, steam room and spa pool. The cardio equipment helps you record your calories burned, distance travelled and other information to help you track your workout.
The free weights area is fully equipped with all the dumbbells, barbells, benches and other equipment you need for an effective workout.
If you prefer to work out in a group environment there is an array of friendly exercise classes which allow you to take part in everything from spinning to yoga, tai chi to circuit training.
In the pool there are aqua aerobic classes and dedicated swim lanes to cater for the various skill levels. Lessons are available for adults and children of all experience levels.
After your workout you can relax in the café bar members’ lounge or shop for fitness clothing and accessories in the on-site sports store.
