Friendly Gym Lytham recently hosted a full day of training for staff from the Lytham and Northwich centres.
They were trained in Emergency First Aid and Defibrillator Useage and was delivered by local training company First Aid Uk Ltd.
Defibrillators in the workplace have now become vitally important as numbers if people suffering Sudden Cardiac Arrest have increased over the past few years.
First Aid Uk Ltd director Trevor Remnant said "The more people who become involved in learning how to administer treatment the greater the number of lives can potentially saved".
Twelve staff were trained by Trevor and underwent practical and written assessments including treatment of an unconscious casualty, resuscitation, shock, choking and seizures.
Friendly Gym on South Westby St now houses a defibrillator should it be required by anyone in the vicinity.
