Father and son keep fit and healthy at Aquatec


“I’ve been a member at Aquatec for 12 years now and it’s really helped me change my lifestyle.”

“I’d picked up some injuries playing football and was becoming less and less active. I joined Aquatec and then realised how down and depressed I had become.”

Being a single parent and working a busy full-time job, Jackie finds it difficult to find time to take his son Billy to swimming lessons or other sporting classes. However, through NL Leisure’s Activ8 gym scheme, both Jackie and Billy can fulfil their health and fitness needs at the same time.

Jackie says: “It’s an absolute win-win. We’re both under the same roof and both keeping healthy and fit, I know he’s safe with the team at Aquatec and having fun.”

“The other big thing for me is that Billy is making friends, he’s having fun and staying fit while meeting the other kids, it’s fantastic.”

Jackie can’t speak highly enough of the team at Aquatec, who have turned his life around and given him and his son the opportunity to get fit and healthy in a safe and secure environment.

Jackie and Billy are now training in the brand new gym at Aquatec, which features a greater amount of floor space, multi-functional areas with an increase in the strength and conditioning facilities available for use. The move towards the functional style of training equipment will attract all areas of the community from new visitors to the gym to seasoned members
