With many New Year resolutions centred around being fitter and healthier, North Tyneside Council’s leisure service has a special offer on its Contours memberships – join for just £1, with nothing else to pay until March.
Contours focuses on the individual member, with dedicated instructors developing tailor-made programmes to help each member achieve their goals in a way that fits in with their lifestyle.
Contours membership gives access to all the facilities at the Lakeside Centre in Killingworth, Hadrian Leisure Centre in Wallsend, Tynemouth Pool, Waves at Whitley Bay and The Parks in North Shields – adding up to five gyms, four pools, two spas and 195 classes.
Yvonne, who joined Contours in January 2015, said: “Last New Year’s Day was my wake up call; I weighed in at 20 stone. On my first visit I expected everyone to giggle and stare, and for everyone who attended to be in shape … but that wasn’t the case at all – everyone was so helpful and concentrated on their own training goals.
“The InBody assessments are really motivating as I can see my results. I feel much fitter, can breathe a lot better and have lost 7½ stone, going from dress size 26 to a 14 in just one year!”
All Contours gyms have the innovative InBody technology, which uses an electrical pulse to precisely measure muscle mass, body fat percentage, body mass index and more. Instructors then use the results to design the perfect mix of activities and regular InBody assessments allow members to see how far they’re progressing.
Councillor Eddie Darke, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism, said: “Many of us make New Year resolutions focused on improving our health in the coming year and we want to make it easier for residents to take a positive step towards achieving this.
“Our Contours memberships offer an unrivalled choice of activities and facilities across the borough. We hope our January offer will encourage people to get their 2016 off to a great start.”
The special Contours offer is subject to making a minimum of 12 monthly payments and terms and conditions apply. For more details, contact any North Tyneside leisure centre or go to www.northtyneside.gov.uk/contours.
