Edinburgh Leisure launches new membership campaign

With festival fever officially finishing today, Edinburgh Leisure has unveiled their new membership offer, designed to help thousands of new customers try activities and get more active this autumn, just in time for Christmas.

With recent research highlighting the dangers of inactivity, Edinburgh Leisure is offering new members joining from today, 26 August to 30 September 2019, a free month in October. Existing members who refer a friend, who then joins, will receive £30 cash back. 

With 30+ venues including 9 swimming pools, 14 gyms and 800 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. 

Rory High, 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 now, 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.” 

With adult memberships starting from as little as £31.00, there is a range of packages, including swim, fitness, gym and climbing.

Edinburgh Leisure gyms have the latest state of the art equipment including some of the newest cardiovascular machines; offer over 800 fitness classes per week including Les Mills Programmes; and has five modernised Victorian pools and the Royal Commonwealth Pool in their portfolio, although Leith Victoria pool is currently undergoing a phased refurbishment. They also boast Edinburgh International Climbing Centre at Ratho, the largest indoor climbing arena in Europe.
