A Northampton gym organisation is planning to reopen its facilities the minute it is allowed to next week.

Trilogy Leisure will welcome back clients from one minute past midnight on Monday (April 12) when the next step of the road map out of lockdown is reached and gyms, personal care services and non-essential shops are allowed to reopen.

Gyms at Cripps Recreation Centre, Danes Camp, Lings Forum and Mounts Baths, as well as the pools at Cripps Recreation Centre, Danes Camps and Mounts Baths will open as a one-off for late night swims and workout sessions.

Three pools will reopen at one minute past midnight.

Trilogy managing director, John Fletcher, said: “Our members and residents across the town have told us how much they have missed going to the gym and swimming during lockdown.

“Therefore we are delighted to help them reactivate their feel-good. It is their time to shine.

“We can’t wait to work with local citizens to help them get fit again and by opening our doors at midnight we look forward to welcoming them back.

“In 2021 we are also marking the wonderful milestone of our 10th Anniversary serving Northampton.

Gyms will be open until 2am.

“With over 1 million visitors a year to our facilities, what better way to celebrate then opening our doors again as soon as we can – even if it is in the middle of the night.”

Special membership will be available for the night and swim sessions will need to be booked in advance.

The bookable swim sessions will be from 12.01am - 12:45am and 1am – 1.45am, while the gyms will open from 12.01am – 2am, where people can just turn up.

Following April 12, openings hours across the facilities will return usual.
