Swimmers are flocking to the newly revamped multi-million dollar Manly Andrew “Boy’ Charlton Aquatic Centre. 

But it is the gym and other facilities that are making their mark on the health conscious locals.

The new look MABC Aquatic Centre has delivered on its promise of a range of fresh facilities to delight swimmers and splashers. But the lesser known success is the fitness facilities now available onsite.

Members at the Manly Andrew 'Boy' Charlton Wellness Centre housed within the site, have access to all the centre's aquatic services as well as a full fitness centre, group training, aquatic classes, personal trainers and relaxation facilities.

Northern Beaches Council is offering COVERED. readers the chance to try the Fitness Centre for five days for free.

"Fitness Centre is the only one on the Northern Beaches that offers members state of the art gym facilities complete with an outdoor 50 and 25 metre swimming pool as well as an indoor 25 metre pool," says Dick Persson AM, Northern Beaches Council Administrator.

MABC Aquatic Centre also includes a Program Pool which can be used for hydrotherapy, children's splash pool, swim school, crèche, onsite café and relaxation facilities including a spa, sauna and steam room.

The new onsite crèche caters to children aged eight weeks to five-years-old to give mums, dads and carers the option to swim or work out while children are cared for by qualified staff. And for full members this is completely free.

Following customer feedback, the council slashed the initial membership fees by half. The proposed reduction designed to provide competitive membership pricing. 

The 12 month annual membership fee is now set at $1248, making full membership allowing access to all the centre’s facilities including the crèche, a highly affordable $21.00 a week.

"Promoting health and wellness is important in our community and we want to offer the best value possible," adds Mr Persson.

With Summer the perfect time to focus on fitness, the MABC Aquatic Centre is the perfect place for the whole family to get healthy and have fun.
