BPL share the love with free health checks
CUSTOMERS and staff at BPL leisure centres across Bassetlaw will be feeling the love this Valentine’s Day, with three days of free health MOTs on offer to help them look after their hearts.
The BPL Loves You events will take place on Monday February 12 at Worksop Leisure Centre, Tuesday February 13 at Bircotes Leisure Centre and Wednesday February 14 at Retford Leisure Centre.
Anyone who visits the centres on those days will be able to book a slot at reception for a private 15-minute consultation, which will include checks on BMI and blood pressure.
Staff will also be on hand to provide programmes to help anyone who wants to get back on track with their fitness or needs advice on where to start.
Although gym members at the clubs get regular health checks as part of their membership packages, the events are a great way for casual users or people who don’t usually come into the centres to benefit from some expert advice and help to kickstart a healthier lifestyle, according to customer service advisor at Retford Leisure Centre Nicola Boswell.
She added: “The events are open to anyone and it’s free to attend. It’s all about loving your heart, which is why we’re doing them on Valentine’s week.
“We want to do something for the local community – and go that extra mile to look after our staff. Even if they’ve never been before, we want people to come into the centres and feel comfortable.”
