Find out below how we are celebrating this year's National Fitness Day and how you and your family can get involved.

7 Day Swim or Class Pass

To celebrate National Fitness Day on Wednesday 26th September, officially the most active day of the year, we thought we would give you the chance to get active in style with a 7 day swim or class pass. 

We thought we'd go one better this year and kick it off a week early, and hopefully encouraging more people to get active throughout September with our 7 day swim or class pass, all for just £10!

That's right, try all the classes you like for just £10! Available from Monday 17th September. Simply choose your centre and buy online to get started. 

#1610ROCKS! Challenge

To celebrate National Fitness day we've set up the 1610 Rocks challenge, simply find one of our special rocks and you'll get a £5 voucher to spend in anyone of our leisure centres. Here's what you need to do to claim your free £5 voucher:

1) Find the rock in a location (clues provided on your local centre's Facebook page) 

2) Photograph a picture of you with the rock

3) Upload to Facebook using the #1610rocks 

4) Re-hide the rock

5) Claim your discount in one of our centres.

The challenge starts on Monday 17th September and you'll be able to participate until Friday 28th September. Good luck!
