LOCAL leisure centre operators, Live Borders is encouraging Borderers to improve their physical and mental wellbeing with the launch of the One Club 60 Day Challenge.
People of all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels are invited to increase their fitness, develop their strength, lower their swim or running times, and improve their wellbeing.
Open to One Club members and non-members alike, registration for the Challenge has started and runs through January, with the opportunity to secure a place either online or at one the eight leisure centres across the Borders.
Scott Weir, Live Borders area manager said: “The 60 Day Challenge is designed to be inclusive to all at great value.
“The idea of the Challenge is to kick start your health, fitness and wellbeing journey by setting your own personal goal with 60 days to achieve your target.
“Everyone has different goals when it comes to their health and fitness so we didn’t want it to be specific to any one thing which may have excluded people. This way everyone, no matter their age, ability or existing fitness levels can get involved and start making progress to being healthier, happier and stronger.”
The challenge can be undertaken at Teviotdale Leisure Centre, Selkirk Leisure Centre, Galashiels Swimming Pool, Eyemouth Leisure Centre, Gytes Leisure Centre, Peebles Swimming Pool, Tweedbank Sports Complex and Kelso Swimming Pool.
Lynn Wills from the Kelso was one of the most inspirational stories from the 2019 Challenge.
The mother of four lost over two stone throughout the 60 days, which she described as ‘life changing’.
She said: “I joined to better my health, it has been such a great experience – going from not being very physical at all to doing as many classes as I could when I could to suit family life.
“The encouragement of the staff has been fantastic and to have them cheer you on from week one to the end of the challenge was amazing.”
The Challenge is free to existing One Club members and non-members buy a 60 Day Challenge pass for just £1 per day.
The pass gives them full access to Live Borders’ gyms, fitness classes, swimming pools and staff expertise.
Registration for the 60 Day Challenge is open until Friday, January 31.
