High Life Highland is starting its bounceback 2.0 in earnest by providing a range of outdoor fitness classes for members at various locations across the region.

The change in Scottish Government guidelines allows organised group exercise for all adults in groups of up to 15 people to meet outdoors for exercise.

Customers will be able to enjoy classes ranging from circuits to Metafit and kettlebells at venues across the region from Monday.

High Life Highland chief executive Steve Walsh said: “Our teams are excited to be able to take the first steps in welcoming our customers back to group exercise.

"Their enthusiasm to make sure people can enjoy exercising in a group again by providing classes outside is fantastic.

"Thanks to their efforts we will be providing over 700 spaces per week across Highland which is one more step forward towards normality for everyone involved."

High Life Highland operate leisure venues across the region including gyms and swimming pools.

Mr Walsh added: “The First Minister's announcement providing a clearer indication on the dates when we will be able to have customers enjoying their fitness indoors once again is a great boost to customers and staff.

"Our priority since the start of the pandemic has been the safety of our staff and customers and while we are ready to go when allowed I would like to reassure everyone that our priorities remain the same.”
