NEWS: Lifestyle Gyms offer three free days of fitness to kick start a healthy 2013

WAS festive excess the theme of your Christmas? Do you feel like you have a waistline to rival Santa’s? Liverpool’s Lifestyles Fitness Centres have the answer as each of the 13 venues will be opening their doors for FREE from 2 to 4 January.

Liverpool residents are encouraged to make healthy start to 2013 with Lifestyles centre opening doors for free for 3 days. Gym, swimming pools and classes can all be used from 2-4 Jan.

So, whether you’ve gained a few extra pounds over the festive season, or you’re a fitness fanatic thinking about trying something new for 2013, head to your nearest centre have a swim, try out the gym equipment or take part in a class – at no cost to you (other than maybe a few aches and pains after your session).

Throughout the three days, staff will be on hand to give advice on leading a healthy lifestyle and how to get the most out of the fitness centres.

Liverpool city council’s cabinet member for culture and tourism, Councillor Wendy Simon, said: “Everyone tends to eat and drink a bit more during Christmas and New Year and this free, three day access is the perfect way to kick start a healthy 2013.”

Both adults and children are welcome, and during the three days, booking is not necessary although places in classes will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. There is no obligation to become a Lifestyles member.
