Debunking 4 Leisure Facility Myths

Edinburgh is a city known for its rich history, stunning architecture, and vibrant culture. But did you know that it's also home to a network of leisure facilities designed to promote health and well-being among its residents? Despite the numerous benefits these facilities offer, there are still some misconceptions floating around. Let's debunk four common myths about Edinburgh Leisure facilities:

Myth 1: The facilities and equipment are old.

Reality: Edinburgh Leisure is committed to staying at the forefront of fitness technology. We continuously invest in our facilities to ensure they are equipped with the latest advancements. From state-of-the-art gym equipment to cutting-edge exercise trends, we strive to provide you with the best resources to maximise your workout sessions.

Myth 2: You have to be a member to use them.

Reality: While our memberships offer great value for frequent visitors, you don't need to be a member to access our facilities. We welcome everyone, whether you prefer pay-as-you-go options or monthly memberships. Our doors are open to all who seek to prioritise their health and fitness.

Myth 3: They're part of the council.

Reality: While our buildings are owned by the City of Edinburgh Council, Edinburgh Leisure operates independently as a charitable trust. Our mission is to help the people of Edinburgh lead healthier, happier, and more active lives.

In the heart of communities, we’re the largest provider of sport and leisure facilities across the city. As a charitable trust, we provide activities for everyone as they move through their lives. And every penny goes back into improving the health and well-being of Edinburgh.
