AS the popularity of 24-7 gyms explodes across Perth, City of Kalamunda has joined the movement by opening a new 24-7 gym in High Wycombe.

Mayor John Giardina said finding time to hit the gym between work, family and running a household would be easier with the opening of the gym at the High Wycombe Community and Recreation Centre.

“Council has endorsed the change to the recreation centre’s gym, allowing it to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week,” he said.

“The change also improves efficiency of our operations as entry and exit can be controlled by a computerised system.

“This will mean the facility will become an unmanned centre, helping save costs over the long term.”

Last year, council endorsed $102,000 of the City’s 2017-18 annual budget for improvements to the gym.

The refurbishment was recently completed, which saw the gym fitted out with new equipment.
