Gym facilities

Due to soon and was wondering if there were gym facilities for staff? Specifically HMP Risley?

Ideal scenario would be after a shift being able to get an hour in the gym each day without first going home, always easier to get a session in before you’ve got home and settled down for the night/day

Plenty of our staff come in early in the morning and use it before starting work for the day. We have more than one gym, so can use them pretty much whenever. Even a sneaky session when on night shift! :slwin:

Risley has 2 gyms for staff to use. You can use them before your shift or at dinner or when you finish your choice

That's fantastic! when I was in the Army I used to train with a few mates and got really into it, since leaving the Army and joining civi street I've slacked off loads going from 5 sessions a week down to 1 maybe 2, really want to get back into it and having a gym at the prison will help allot.

I take it both of you are at Risley then, see you there on my induction week (20th) :)
