Local leisure centre K2 Crawley, operated by Freedom Leisure on behalf of Crawley Borough Council, is running an Egg-citing Eggs-change this Easter in aid of local charities.

By presenting a medium or large boxed chocolate Easter Egg at the centre before 6pm on the 31 March the membership team will waive the joining fee on any swim or fitness membership, offering a saving of up to £45.

Geordie Logan, Freedom Leisure Sales Manager, says:

“Easter and Spring is a time for both new beginnings and giving so we have decided to combine the two by offering anyone wishing to embark on a new fitness regime to do so while giving to charity at the same time!

“We know that Spring is a time that many locals look to join a gym and start a fresh new fitness regime as the weather starts to improve and people turn their thoughts to summer and holidays, so we thought that this would be a perfect way to support Crawley residents with an incentive. We are really hoping to get at least 100 eggs to distribute to our chosen local charities.”

All eggs collected in the centre will be distributed on Easter Sunday to St Catherine’s Hospice, paediatric units at Crawley and East Surrey hospitals and Crawley’s food bank.

Neurokinex Gatwick wins national award

Neurokinex Gatwick – a leading provider of activity-based rehabilitation for spinal cord injury – has won the 2018 National Fitness Awards’ Best Rehabilitation Facility of the Year category.

Four members of the 10-strong team were at the Award ceremony on Friday November 30th to receive the Award.

The Best Rehabilitation Facility category is open to gyms and sites who are dedicated purely to the rehabilitation market and/or who employ specially trained consultants to deal with GP referrals. Neurokinex was chosen as a finalist from 100s of entries and was up against four other finalists.

Neurokinex underwent a rigorous assessment process, which involved a site visit by a member of the awards’ team who toured the facility, chatted to clients and staff and examined all areas of the business. Detailed reports were then compiled and passed on to an expert judging panel which decided the winners.

Neurokinex Gatwick team receives National Fitness Award for Best Rehabilitation Facility

“I am very proud and happy that our Gatwick team has won this very important award,”

says Harvey Sihota, founder and director of Neurokinex.

“This achievement is testament to the hard work of the entire team. We know our ground-breaking protocols and activity-based rehabilitation therapies are redefining possibilities for adults and children with spinal cord injury. But to have this independent validation from industry experts that our work is of a national award-winning quality is an honour: I am delighted our work has been recognised this way.”

Neurokinex www.neurokinex.org is a charity and a not-for-profit organisation.

The Gatwick site, which opened in 2016, sets out to redefine possibilities for people with a spinal cord injury.

Its programmes stimulate and load the entire nervous and musculoskeletal systems through carefully crafted, task-specific exercises with the assistance of skilled therapists. Neurokinex clients take part in activities such as active standing, cycling, walking and rowing, tailored to their neurological impairment.

This offers people a multitude of benefits including improvements in neurological function, muscle bulk and quality, cardiovascular health, strength and stamina, balance and trunk control, skin and bone health, range of motion and psychological wellbeing.

“Neurokinex stood out to us as a life-changing facility which combines cutting edge tech with highly-skilled and compassionate trainers,” says Judith Halkerston, Event Director, National Fitness Awards.

“It is evident that Neurokinex is changing the lives of people with spinal cord injury. Its broad client base of adults and children as young as 18 months, plus international clients who are travelling to the facility for this treatment, proves that it is offering something very special indeed. They should be very proud of their achievement and I wish them continued success going forwards.”
