WHEN Bronson Rehu visits the Inala Police Citizens Youth Club, you just know things are about to get physical.

The 26-year-old has been a regular user of the organisation's PCYC Fitness facilities for the past year.

And thanks to a recent cash injection into the gym, Mr Rehu's workout has become a whole lot better.

The Inala PCYC last year received a State Government Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) grant.

The money comes from taxes on Golden Casket lotteries, wagering, Keno and gambling machines.

The fund makes grants to not-for-profit community groups on a quarterly basis.

The PCYC received $31,765 which was used to buy the latest in strength and cardio equipment.

Mr Rehu said the grant had enhanced his workout routine significantly.

"It's great - using better equipment means a better workout," Mr Rehu said.

The facility is now gaining a reputation as a place where locals have access to quality equipment at a reasonable price.

And since the new equipment was installed, PCYC Fitness has seen a dramatic increase in memberships.

The gym's popularity has also seen a flow on effect, with members taking note and becoming involved with other PCYC activities during their visits.
