Our open-air pool at Severn Centre is – 25m of opportunity to glide through water in the sunshine and enjoy a brilliant cardio and calorie-busting low-impact workout while you go. Nearly 50 years after it was created by and for the local community as a safe place to bathe (they’d seen too many lives lost in the River Severn), the pool has had a community-led refurb of late and includes a shaded picnic area and a snack shack so you can make a day of it.

At Halo Leisure we are training our Fitness Instructors to help you find a safe and sustainable way to exercise if you’re experiencing the symptoms of Long Covid. We know it’s impacting communities across the country, with the NHS listing symptoms like extreme tiredness, shortness of breath and chest pain, brain fog (problems with memory and concentration), joint pain and changes to taste and smell. Other surveys have reported insomnia, gastro-intestinal and bladder problems, changes to periods and skin conditions. Severity varies, but the impact on daily life is clear. 

We would love to see your photos from the summer - what you’ve done to get or keep moving, and how you’ve motivated your kids to do the same. August 19th is World Photo Day when photographers are asked to share a photo that encapsulates their world so let’s use it to share your workout world.

It might be great to ditch the school timetable when term ends, but a routine can save the day (the week, and the holiday). It rescues mornings lost to gaming, promotes good health (and so good moods), and saves precious family time (and fights to get it).
