For anyone looking to get fitter as Christmas approaches, there’s a great deal on the table this Black Friday.

The deal, available at all County Durham’s leisure centres, gives anyone signing up for a direct-debit twelve-month gym or swim membership one month completely free.

This will result in a saving of £34.50. You just need to sign up before Monday 26th November – and then you’ll have nothing to pay until 1st January 2019.

Andrew Brown, principal physical activity officer, said, “December is always an expensive month so there’s no better time for us to offer a membership discount.”

“A fitness membership could really help you stay in shape, even with all the festive treats on offer, especially when you don’t need to pay anything till January.”

“We’ve got a great range of fitness classes included as part of the deal so there’s something for everyone to enjoy, whether they’re a fitness fanatic or total beginner.”
