Stay strong this January with a free fitness taster event
With a new year always comes new year resolutions. So this 2019, start the year right and a positive attitude. Exercise is a great way to boost your mental and physical health. To help you start strong in January and continue as you mean to go on, Edinburgh Leisure is hosting a free fitness and pool taster event at the Royal Commonwealth Pool on Saturday, 5 January to promote some of its new and established fitness classes.
From Aquadash to Bodycombat to swim technique to Zumba, most of the classes will have you working up a sweat and challenging your body in a good way. Each of the sessions will last 40-45 minutes, with the exception of Hydrospin and Aquafit, which ast 30 minutes.
There will also be a series of Groupfit gym classes, which offer high-intensity, interval training, lasting 15 - 30 minutes, giving you a quick, effective workout, in a short time.
The event is open to both members and non-members. Classes are bookable now, by calling 0131 667 7211 or by calling into the reception at the Royal Commonwealth Pool, Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh EH16 5BB or by visiting the event page on the Edinburgh Leisure website.
