#KeepOctoberFree – Edinburgh Leisure launches September Campaign

Posted: 25th August 2017

Edinburgh Leisure has unveiled their September offer, designed to help thousands of new customers to try new activities and get more active this autumn.

With recent research highlighting the dangers of inactivity, the not-for-profit company, which manages City of Edinburgh’s Council leisure services is offering new members joining in September, a free month in October.

With 30+ venues including 10 swimming pools, 15 gyms and 700+ fitness classes per week, Edinburgh Leisure is the ‘biggest club in town’ providing the widest range of fitness classes, state of the art facilities and community based programmes across the capital, creating opportunities for everyone to get active, stay active and achieve more.

Graeme Renwick, Marketing Officer at Edinburgh Leisure said: “We’re passionate about providing opportunities and support for people to participate in physical activities and sport, whatever their age and stage.

“And for those joining in September, they’re going to be so busy with all the wonderful facilities that Edinburgh Leisure has on offer across the city centre that we’re urging them to keep October free, as well as giving them that month for free.”

From 25 August, new joiners will get one month free (October) when they join before the end of September. Existing members who refer a friend, who then joins, will receive £30 cash back.

With adult memberships starting from as little as £29.90, there is a range of packages, including swim, fitness, gym and climbing.

Many of Edinburgh Leisure’s gyms have had a recent refurbishment including Drumbrae, Leith Victoria and Dalry and Warrender have had new gym equipment addes.

Edinburgh Leisure gyms have the latest state of the art equipment including some of the newest cardiovascular machines; offer over 750 fitness classes per week including Les Mills Programmes; and have five modernised Victorian pools and the Royal Commonwealth Pool in their portfolio.
