Leisure chiefs are offering East Renfrewshire residents a helping hand to improve their fitness.

Anyone who signs up for a 12-month fitness membership with East Renfrewshire Culture and Leisure (ERCL) will avoid having to pay the usual £20 joining fee.

Membership includes all-inclusive access to four gyms with the latest cardio and resistance equipment, three swimming pools and more than 80 fitness classes per week.

A spokesperson for ERCL said: “Our dedicated gym instructors are always on hand to help you get the most out of your membership.

“When you join, you will also receive a free 12-week fitness programme, where our friendly gym instructors will be available to assist you on your new fitness journey.

“During the 12 weeks, you will have four check-ins where you can discuss identifying your goals.

“Our gyms open early in the morning and late in the evening and there are a variety of fitness classes throughout the day, giving you fitness options that work with your schedule.”
