Burnley Leisure will join hundreds of organisations and fitness enthusiasts across the country to mark National Fitness Day on Wednesday, 9th September.
The most active day of the year is going to be the biggest yet and people in Burnley and Padiham will be offered a wide range of free activities running throughout the day.
National Fitness Day will begin with a 12-hour cycle challenge at 7am at St Peter’s Leisure Centre, Burnley. Members of the public are invited to hop on a bike for 15-minute slots, win prizes and help Burnley Leisure clock new miles.
The leisure team has also a surprise in store for Burnley Charter Walk shoppers. Starting at 9.30am on Wednesday morning, fitness instructors will be outside Marks & Spencer delivering 30-minute fitness classes including step, group power, metafit, spinning and a buggy boot camp.
For those who enjoy working out in the evening, a selection of classes will be available at St Peter’s and Padiham Leisure Centres free of charge.
People will also be able to relax and enjoy free swimming all day at St Peter’s and Padiham Leisure Centres.
Scott Bryce, operations manager at Burnley Leisure, said: “It is a very worthwhile national initiative and an excellent opportunity for local residents to get a free taster of the wide range of fitness activities available at Burnley Leisure.
“This year National Fitness Day is part of Burnley Leisure Health Week and we have organised a full week of free activities including health MOTs, membership offers, an online competition and much more. Everyone is invited to join in the celebrations and embrace new ways of staying fit and healthy.”
National Fitness Day is open to beginners and fitness enthusiasts, and also on the day anyone who becomes a Burnley Leisure member will have the joining fee waived.
