Outdoor group exercise classes, outdoor sports to kick off in the Braintree district next week

Fusion Lifestyle and Braintree District Council are pleased to announce that in line with the government roadmap, a number of activities will start to reopen next week. 

Outdoor group exercise classes, outdoor pitches and tennis will open at Braintree Sport & Health Club and outdoor exercise classes and outdoor pitches will open at Witham Sports Ground on Monday 29th March. 

The outdoor exercise programme will see some of Fusion’s most popular group classes brought into the fresh air, giving fitness fans the chance to get back to the classes they love, in a safe and secure way.

The centres will be operating in line with the latest government guidelines and those planning to visit will be required to book and pay online, minimising contact required at the centre and allowing for the track and trace process to be implemented.  Centre users will be asked to arrive ready to exercise.  These measures, combined with meticulous cleaning routines, are designed to keep customers safe and offer complete confidence to use the facilities and classes. 

Fusion is working with Braintree District Council to reopen other facilities in the area in a phased approach in line with the government roadmap.

Anthony Cawley, Director of Operations at Fusion said, “We are really excited we will be able to start welcoming the local community back to our centres, starting with outdoor activities from 29th March.  We know how important our leisure facilities for the health and wellbeing of the local community so we’ll be doing our best to offer the choice of as many outdoor options as we can while we are waiting to open more facilities.”

Cherie Root, Corporate Director, Braintree District Council added, “We’re delighted that our leisure facilities will be starting to reopen in March with outdoor activities leading the way.  We are working closely with Fusion Lifestyle on the reopening programme and look forward to helping our communities get active in more and more ways throughout the year.”

Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance, via download of the Fusion Lifestyle app or visit www.fusion-lifestyle.com to register and use the booking facility.  For centre opening times and timetables please visit the centre websites www.fusion-lifestyle.com/centres/braintree-sport-health-club or www.fusion-lifestyle.com/centres/witham-sports-ground
