After many setbacks and challenges over the past 18 months, the Leisureplex team were eager to create a challenge to continue to re-ignite some fun, interaction and recognition amongst our members.
Over the course of the Olympics, several challenges were held at both Riverton and Cannington gyms with all members being welcomed to take part. From rowing to bench press and sled push, there were options for everyone.
The ‘Plex Olympics resulted in 61 members taking part and recording their results. Our gym team were impressed with the improvements in strength, speed and power by the participants, and were pleasantly surprised when members challenged (and beat) our Personal Trainers!
