The Amersham-based gym is under the Everyone Active umbrella.

Steve Salwa, Everyone Active’s contract manager, said: “We’re very much looking forward to reopening the centres and welcoming the local community.

“After having to close for nearly four months from when we took over the management of these facilities, this latest announcement from Government is the news the leisure industry has been eagerly awaiting.

“Giving people the opportunity to resume activity and exercise in their leisure centre will go a long way to maintaining the good health of local communities.

“We’ve been overwhelmed with the support we have received from customers during these unprecedented times, and we’re so grateful.

“Like many other industries, leisure has been greatly affected by the lockdown.
