Leisure centres in County Durham are offering people the chance to try their facilities for free.
Whether you’re a swimmer, fitness enthusiast or complete newbie, new customers who visit Durham County Council leisure centres, from Monday September 3 to Sunday September 16, can pick up a free seven day pass.
The free pass – included at Aycliffe Leisure Centre – entitles the new customers to try out centres’ full leisure facilities, whether that be a gym, swimming pool or fitness classes.
Anyone attending a gym will be offered a free one to one appointment, to discuss their fitness goals and be shown how to use the equipment. If you have any questions there will be leisure centre staff available at all times to lend a hand or offer help and advice.
Andy Brown, the council’s principal physical activity manager, said: “This free pass gives new customers, who may be a little apprehensive about joining a gym, a chance to try out the leisure centres and realise it’s not as scary as they think. It’s a great way to get started on your fitness journey.”
The free pass also includes access to the aqua fitness classes which run at some sites, including the popular aqua jump and aqua cycle. To avoid disappointment booking for the classes is advisable.
To collect the free pass customers can visit their local leisure centre anytime throughout the fortnight.
