Free passes available Wednesday, September 22
Fusion Lifestyle and Bedford Borough Council will be celebrating National Fitness Day on Wednesday, September 22, by encouraging the local community to clock up a ‘Midweek Mile’ at Bedford International Athletics Stadium, John Bunyan Sports & Fitness, Kempston Pool, Oasis Beach Pool and Robinson Pools & Fitness.
The mile can be completed by walking, running, rowing, swimming, or a combination of all of these, and is open to members and non-members alike. With a free gym and swim pass available to download at www.fusion-lifestyle.com/offers/free-pass/ (terms and conditions apply).
Each participating centre will keep a running tally of the miles achieved throughout the day and will announce their totals on social media.
Anthony Cawley, Director of Operations for Fusion Lifestyle, commented: “National Fitness Day is a brilliant way to help the local community get active.
“We hope by offering a free pass our members will bring their friends and family and residents who want to try out their local centres will use this opportunity to do just that.
“Some friendly competition between all our centres will provide an extra incentive too and we can’t wait to see how many miles Fusion users all over the country can achieve.”
Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, added: “Whether people are taking their first steps towards getting fit, adding some extra midweek movement to their schedule or celebrating the exercise they already do, the ‘Midweek Mile’ is a brilliant reminder of the importance of exercise to everyone. We are looking forward to seeing the local community get active to mark National Fitness Day.”
To take part simply attend your nearest Fusion Lifestyle centre on Wednesday 22nd September and share the number of miles you achieve with staff. To join in the fun on social media take a picture of yourself post workout and tag #FitnessDay and #Fitness2me.
