Fusion Lifestyle and West Devon Borough Council will be celebrating National Fitness Day on Wednesday 22 September by encouraging the local community to clock up a 'Midweek Mile.' This could be at Meadowlands Leisure Centre or Parklands 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 Tony Leech, West Devon Borough Council Lead Member for Leisure, added: "The 'Midweek Mile' is a brilliant reminder of the importance of exercise to everyone. People could be taking their first steps towards getting fit, adding some extra midweek movement to their schedule or celebrating the exercise they already do. We are looking forward to seeing the people of West Devon get active to mark National Fitness Day and hope we can rack up those miles and smiles."

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.
