When Jono had his check up in Dublin the consultant told him to try physiotherapy in a swimming pool to help his back pain.
The only problem was he can only do about 15 minutes a week at the moment so joining a leisure centre would have been expensive and the sports centre would be too busy and again expensive for 15 minutes.
The Avena Leisure Centre in Ballisodare, Sligo came to our rescue. So today Jono had his first visit to the pool there. It’s a really lovely leisure centre; bright, clean and modern with a pool at just the right temperature. There’s also a jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, gym and what looked like a few fitness rooms.
They have various fitness classes and you can even have a session with a personal trainer for €25 which I think is great value. I’ve read Debbie’s post about her fitness sessions and they sound great.
At the moment you can avail of a 15 day membership for €30 to see if Avena is the leisure centre for you and there are also lots of other membership options to suit the whole family.
Thanks so much to the centre for being so kind. You can find out more about the centre on their website.
