Some big improvements are on the way at the Moss Vale Aquatic Centre.

That includes the construction of a 120 square metre multipurpose room for group fitness classes and community use, and a change room for people with limited mobility and special needs.

The upgrade is being funded by a NSW Government grant as well as contributions from Wingecarribee Council and BlueFit.

Blue Fit State Manager Andrew Hungerford has more details about the new multi purpose room.

"This is a new space to be created off the front of the existing gym,

"There's some space between the gym and the carpark which will create a new room,

"There'll be minimum impact on existing use,"Mr Hungerford said.

Mittagong Crossfitter Ricky Garard is making a return to competition after a four year ban.

The 27 year old had a major setback in 2017 when he tested positive to performance enhancing drugs.

Ricky now wants to make amends for the past when he competes at the Dubai CrossFit Championships in three weeks time.

"It's definitely taught me alot about resilience, patience and determination,

''It's been a hard road but I'm glad I never gave up,"Ricky said.

After Dubai he'll be heading to Miami to take part in another competition.
