Challenge yourself in 2018 and help others whilst getting fit

January is the month when thousands of Scots resolve that this is the year they will get fit, lose weight or just get out more. Unfortunately, New Year’s resolutions are as notorious as Hollywood marriages as far as lasting commitment goes. 

So why not challenge yourself in 2018 and set a goal of raising money for a good cause you care about. It could be the ultimate motivator and not only help you keep up your fitness goals but it will help others too.

With this in mind, Edinburgh Leisure, the not-for-profit company which manages 30 venues across the capital, is launching their January promotion in the hope they will inspire people to join one of their leisure centres across the city and receive support to work towards their health and fitness goals.

New members joining between 21 December 2017 and 31 January 2018, will get February free.* Edinburgh Leisure is also running a ‘refer a friend’ offer for existing members. If a member refers a friend and they sign up during the promotional period, the member will get £30 cash back (£20 cash back in they are members of Jack Kane, Queensferry or Kirkliston).

With 1 world class climbing centre, 6 golf courses, 10 swimming pools, 14 state of the art gyms and 800+ fitness classes per week across the various centres, Edinburgh Leisure really is the biggest club in town. There is something for everyone to enjoy moving and getting fitter.

David McLean, Fitness Manager at Edinburgh Leisure said: “Why not make 2018 the year you and a friend challenge yourselves to take part in a charity event for that extra motivation. Having a goal outside of weight loss can help to give exercise an added dimension with losing weight a secondary benefit. Training with a friend can be fun, motivating, social and you’ll drive each other to achieve.

“There are lots of great causes out there to choose from, which will offer a range of fitness challenges, such as the Edinburgh Leisure Jump In Swim Challenge and our welcoming Edinburgh Leisure staff will be on hand to offer new members support and advice to help you enjoy increased physical activity in the long term and work out a programme that’s achievable for your chosen event.”
