In this weeks 60 Second News: Leisure Management reported this week that on the 25th June Barry’s Bootcamp will be taking over the London Eye. The boutique chain which has two sites in London will deliver 15 classes simultaneously in 15 pods on the London Eye. It costs £60 to take part and all proceeds will go to Stand Up To Cancer.
Last weekend saw the opening of Thorncliffe Health and Leisure Centre in Sheffield, which is managed by Places for People. The centre boasts two pools, a gym and two studios and was built to replace Chapeltown Baths.
This week has also seen two new openings from the Anytime Fitness franchise in Corby and Luton.
Lastly, Blink Fitness in America has decided to cover all their mirrors for the month of June. The mirrors have been replaced with signs saying ‘Do it for the mood, not just the mirror’. The aim of the campaign is to remind members exercise is about more than just looks. BlinkFitness Vice president, Ellen Rogemann, is hoping the brand can provide an antidote to the ‘beach body ready’ message. Let us know what you think of this idea by sending a tweet to @TLDC_UK.
Thanks for watching!
