With a new year comes the opportunity for a fresh start and for many people this means a fitness overhaul.

Leisure World Colchester is rewarding those with fitness new year resolutions by giving those who sign up for a 12-month contract getting the month of January free and no joining fee to pay – a saving of up to £58.99.

The centre can offer new challenges for experienced gym bunnies as well as new starts for beginners who get that rabbit in the headlights look when fitness is mentioned.

You will be getting a lot for your money too as the Activa gym now has a new

Functional Training Area. This 243sqm room with bespoke flooring and a Life Fitness SYNRGY 360 system has four dedicated zones for functional training with a variety of racks and attachments, kettlebells, jump boxes and tyres as well as a new smaller free weights area to complement the existing free weights area. You will become agile and athletic with equipment designed to get you moving in a balanced and powerful way with skills that will transfer into every day life and the sports you play.

Colchester Borough Councillor Annie Feltham, portfolio holder for commercial services, said: “The new functional training area is a great addition to the excellent facilities at Leisure World Colchester. Functional training has become very popular as it is low impact and helps prevent injuries. I use it myself and its simplicity makes it suitable for all levels of fitness, as well as increasing the ease of everyday life.”
