BlueFit is proud to have a dedicated and committed BlueFit Green team. This past year the team has been researching smart energy savings options and practices that will make all our sites in Australia more environmentally sustainable. We are implementing our initiatives in phases to ensure we are finding the best solutions to use in all our facilities.

Some initiatives are visible to customers and staff, such as the reduction of plastic in our cafes and the introduction of more drinking fountains to refill reusable bottles. Other initiatives are happening behind the scenes.

In our plant rooms, we have been installing variable speed drives (VSDs) on our mechanical equipment. These devices can power-down our equipment in times of low centre usage and power-up the equipment only when it is necessary – during peak usage. Our lights look the same, but many have already been replaced with LED fixtures. These fixtures are now significantly reducing our energy demands!

BlueFit Green’s next initiative is to introduce our own BlueFit “Keep Cup” and recycling bins throughout our centres. We are looking forward to seeing BlueFit blend more green in our surrounding environments, are you?

At a time when keeping connected with loved ones is as easy as lifting your mobile phone from your pocket, it is comforting to know that those close to us really are within reach at any given moment. However, when it comes to supervising your child at our (or any) swimming pools, the concept of being within arms reach has an even greater significance.

Here, it is a matter of life and death.

Over the last few months, our lifeguards have saved the lives of several children whose parents or guardians were otherwise preoccupied on their phones – one of the recoveries occurred within arms reach of the parent, who was too busy on their phone.

Our lifeguards are an important safety feature but they DO NOT replace the close supervision of accompanying adults. A puddle of water is enough to cause an infant to drown, and as many as 20% of near-drowning survivors suffer permanent neurological disability.

We understand how easy it is to have new notifications or having the latest news at your fingertips but we urge you to remember the reason why you are where you are. It is for the sake of the loved one(s) who, at this moment are relying on you.

Keep safe and happy swimming for all of our customers!
