A Heartfelt Salute to Fitness, Unity, and Community: Celebrating National Fitness Day at 3-1-5 Health Club
On Wednesday, 20th September, 3-1-5 Health Club opened its doors wide in celebration of National Fitness Day, marking not just a day of activity, but a grand unveiling and a collective stride towards a healthier community.
The event, underscored by the theme ‘Your Health is for Life’, illuminated the club’s commitment to fostering mental health, nutrition, and recovery, in addition to physical activity, aligning with ukactive’s vision for holistic wellbeing.
The day was a carnival of health, with free tasters, class demos, and the launch of exciting new classes. The atmosphere was electrified by savings on memberships, visits from special guests, and the revelation of our revamped reception, foyer, and the much-anticipated recovery lounge, equipped with hydro massage beds and cryotherapy loungers.
We Spoke to Beyond Radio
The festivities kicked off with Greg, Nathan and Chris from Beyond Radio broadcasting live and interviewing notable figures.
Sean Thornton, our dedicated Owner and Director, shared insights on the club’s decade-long journey and emphasized the pivotal role of 3-1-5 in supporting active, healthy communities. Club Manager Deena Gillan introduced our new recovery areas, and World Champion Olympic Weightlifter, Graham Hicks, voiced his enthusiasm about being a part of the 3-1-5 family.
Over £5000 Donated for Cardiac Services
Our commitment to community wellbeing was showcased by presenting a £5006 charity cheque to Judith Read from the Bay Hospital Trust, funds diligently raised through fitness challenges. Judith expressed her gratitude, affirming, ‘We are so grateful to have had such wonderful support from staff and members of 3-1-5. This generous donation is a testament to all who went the extra mile to raise funds for Cardiac Services. You can be assured that we will be able to really make a difference to patients at the Royal Lancaster Infirmary. Thank you so, so much.
