Allister Wood: Strode Swimming Pool & Fitness Centre Manager

Al Wood WebAs the Centre Manager of Strode Swimming Pool and Fitness Centre it is my responsibility to oversee the day to day running of the Centre to provide a comfortable, enjoyable and safe environment for the local community.   

I joined the company back in 1999, as a Leisure Attendant before progressing into the position I hold today.  Throughout my career I have focused on developing my people leadership skills.

Alongside holding a BA Hons in Business and Leisure Studies I have over 13 years of experience within the leisure industry.  More recently I successfully completed my ILM Level 5 Certificate in Leadership, which I am further developing upon to support my Team to deliver the highest possible standards of service.

 Working for Avalon Leisure: There is always a different challenge to achieve and the Centres are constantly changing and adapting to the leisure industry and customer demands.

Avalon are a supportive company who spot people's potential and develop them to reach that potential.

Life outside of work: Mainly revolves around sport including, mountain biking, motocross, snowboarding and running.  I like to challenge myself and test my body, mind and soul to its limits.
