Swimming lessons are back! There have been quite a few changes so here is a quick video that will inform you of everything you'll need to know about swim school. For more information visit: https://crowd.in/DOWBKF #mcractive

Lacie was looking forward to Swimathon back in March this year until COVID struck causing it to be cancelled and leaving her upset and very disappointed that she was unable to complete it. Finally the email arrived to say the leisure was reopening and swimming was returning and Lacie along with her mum [Michelle] were the first to sign back up into the Tuesday evening academy class and once back in and swimming she asked about completing her Swimathon with us - her mum contacted Swimathon organisers and they said to contact the centre which she did and along with her teacher Natalie we arranged for her to complete the Swimathon on Sunday 25th October. She was so happy to have completed her challenge of 2.5KM [100 lengths] in just over 1hour and 15 minutes and had raised money for charity. #mcractive

Probably my favourite session I’ve ever done on the bike yesterday. I took out all my frustrations of not yet being able to run yet on a cycling session. I think I’ve discovered why the government held off opening gyms just yet because people like me come in and create puddles of sweat around them. Don’t worry though I did clean it up - - Nb for those that asked this was taken at the NHS wellness centre at the Etihad. #spinsession #cycling #crosstraining #thankyounhs #nhsheroes #etihad #manchesteretihad #mcractive #injuredrunner #sweatsesh
