Health Club in Charrington Tower

The Charrington Leisure Centre/ Health Club  was opened in 2017 and replaced the Centre in New Providence Wharf. The residents of NPW, Michigan, Charrington and Columbia West are members of the Leisure Centre/ Health Club. Only those leaseholders from Ontario who have “opted in” to use the Charrington Leisure Centre/ Health Club have access to the gym, swimming pool and spa facilities. Those who did not “opt in” to use these facilities have access to the Radisson gym. Opting in means paying service charges towards the upkeep of the Charrington Leisure Centre/ Health Club.

The Charrington gym has  six full time trainers. The equipment is the latest in techno-gym equipment. There is a swimming pool, jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. A Leisure Committee has been established by the RA.The Leisure Committee works with BAML on behalf of the Residents Association. The committee were involved in the equipment selection for of the new gym. Our advisors were owners and residents with key expertise in this area – they all gave their time for free – now the gym is a big selling point for purchasers, residents and tenants across the estate.
