Pendle Leisure Members Go For Gold!

Tuesday, 13th September 2016

Each month, we invite Activo members to take part in our Gym Challenge!

The challenges are aimed at individual, team and charity fund-raising activities to keep you focused, interested and get you closer to achieving your personal fitness goal.

With our gym instructors on-hand to offer support, encouragement and tips, we often see some pretty incredible results – and last month’s certainly fit that criteria.

An Olympic-inspired challenge was set for teams to cycle the distance from the UK to Brazil, burning as many calories as possible in the process. Entrants could run or cycle, and with the results now in – we can definitely confirm that plenty of you went for gold!
