Gym-goers to enjoy wider access to leisure trusts


North-east gym and fitness users are set to receive even greater membership benefits thanks to an initiative providing free access to leisure facilities across Scotland.

Award-winning charity Sport Aberdeen has joined the ‘Leisure Link Partnership’, giving its members access to gym, public swimming and fitness classes at participating leisure facilities across Scotland, at no extra cost to their existing membership.

From Monday 3rd February, Sport Aberdeen members will be able to get active at participating venues in Orkney, Moray, the Highlands, Western Isles, Argyll and Bute and the Borders.

David Selkirk, Sport Aberdeen Director of Community Leisure Operations, said:

“Sport Aberdeen prides itself on the services we offer within the city so being able to extend that offering of quality leisure facilities across the country, in association with like-minded leisure trusts, is something that we are excited to present to our members.

“We hope the added value that this partnership brings to our membership encourages people to keep up with a healthy and active lifestyle whether on holiday in Scotland or away for work.”

Sport Aberdeen are also offering a free month of membership to all who sign up for a Get Active 1-5, Active Futures or Active Lifestyles 65+ membership before the end of February.
