BELLARINE Aquatic and Sports Centre (BASC) opened its new fully-serviced gym to the public this month.
Ocean Grove councillor Jan Farrell was at the opening on 18 January and said the gym would help the centre expand the fitness activities it provided the community.
“Many of our members have been keen to see a fully serviced gym at BASC,” she said.
“We’re thrilled to now be able to offer that to them and to the wider community.”
After a month of construction, the centre now has a range of cardio, strength and functional training equipment with qualified staff.
Members can book in to receive a free assessment and personalised program, designed to help them reach their health and fitness goals.
With capacity in the gym for up to 50 people at any time, centre users will benefit from an updated multi-purpose group exercise room and new indoor cycling studio.
Cr Farrell said the centre helped make the Shell Road precinct a sporting and social hub for local residents and holiday-makers.
