Fusion Lifestyle and South Hams District Council will be celebrating National Fitness Day on Wednesday 22nd September. They're encouraging the local community to clock up a 'Midweek Mile' at Ivybridge Leisure Centre, Dartmouth Leisure Centre, Quayside Leisure Centre and Totnes Leisure Centre.

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 (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 Jonathan Hawkins, South Hams District Council's Executive Member for Leisure, said: "If anyone needs a little extra motivation to get active, the "Midweek Mile" is perfect. You can get involved regardless of your current fitness (or unfitness) level and whether you're a member of Fusion or not. We can't wait to see how many miles our centres across the South Hams achieve - so get your friends and family together and celebrate World Fitness Day in the pool, on the treadmill or on the rowing machine to see who can go the extra mile."

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.
