Laganview Community Gym

In October 2013 Health Minister Edwin Poots MLA and Olympian Dame Mary Peters  jointly opened LaganView's gym.

The community gym is one of the key elements in a new healthy living initiative for people within the Lisburn area, which will be led by Resurgam, to improve the health and wellbeing of the whole community and reduce health inequalities where these exist. 

The gym is jointly funded by the Public Health Agency (PHA) and the Resurgam Community Development Trust and will offer the people in the area an opportunity to try a wide range of activities such as cycling, rowing and weight training.

The gym forms part of an innovative programme to respond to a number of issues identified in the ‘The Best for Every Child’ research report studying deprived areas of Lisburn and published in 2012. These pointed to the need to tackle long-term poor health and quality of life across the population as a whole.  The development of the community gym, which will be a part of this initiative, will offer a number of exercise stations which will provide a mix of cardiovascular, strength and toning workouts.

At the launch Chief Executive of the PHA Dr Eddie Rooney said: “The Public Health Agency is delighted to support this community gym in the heart of Old Warren.  This is exactly the kind of local action that the PHA is keen to support, in order to promote healthier living.  Together with the Resurgam Trust, over the past year we have developed a major work programme to address needs in this area. This new initiative represents a milestone in collaborative working to improve the health and wellbeing of the whole community.”
