Meadowside Leisure Centre Teaming Up With Coopers Square to Provide Pop-Up Gym

Meadowside Leisure Centre and Coopers Square will be helping to celebrate National Fitness Day 2017 by setting up a free Pop-Up Gym in the shopping centre.

Local residents and shoppers will be able to pop by on Wednesday 27th September between 10:00am and 4:00pm to try out the equipment, get fitness advice and compete in challenges. There will also be competitions and prizes for those taking part.

Councillor Colin Whittaker, Deputy Leader for Cultural Services said: “National Fitness Day encourages the nation to celebrate the fun of fitness and physical activity across the UK. It is also a chance to highlight the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping us raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier and active lifestyles.

“We know the benefits of regular exercise includes a healthier heart, increased wellbeing, and a better quality of life. However, many of us find getting fit a struggle. It becomes a challenge when it shouldn’t be – which is why there is a National Fitness Day: to highlight the simple and easy steps you can make to become more physically active and all the while enjoy it”.

So grab a friend, family member, colleague, or team and join in on the most active day of the year to celebrate the fun of fitness!
