BH Live to reopen former Virgin Active club following £1m revamp

BH Live, a social enterprise which operates leisure facilities across the South of England, is set to open a new health club in Corfe Mullen, East Dorset this month.

The site – previously operated by Virgin Active – includes a large gym floor, exercise studios, a 25m swimming pool and outdoor tennis courts.

The property has been unoccupied for more than two years since Virgin Active shuttered the club in February 2014.

The opening, on 14 November, follows a £1m redevelopment programme at the site, which has seen the pool being upgraded and the existing gym being expanded and fitted with new Life Fitness equipment and a MyZone system.

Called BH Live Active Corf Mullen, the centre will have an emphasis on health and wellbeing, with a number of activities being delivered in partnership with local healthcare providers.

An exercise referral activity programme will be put in place to encourage people with health conditions get more active and the site will also cater for families with a new soft play zone being installed for pre-school children.

BH Live Active’s 813 Club – for families with children aged between eight and 13 – will also be launched, in order to encourage young people and families to get more active together. A learn-to-swim programme for adults and children will begin in 2017.

“The wait is almost over and we are really looking forward to opening the doors to this fabulous new centre,” said Peter Gunn, BH Live’s CEO.

“We have had phenomenal support from the local authorities, community and businesses while the improvements have been taking place.

“As the centre’s transformation nears completion, we continue to explore further expansion opportunities across the south of England during 2017.”
