This is how you can get free membership for a month at Edinburgh Leisure in 2020

NEW Year’s resolutions, which often focus on weight-loss and getting fit, are as notorious as Hollywood marriages as far as lasting commitment goes.

Yet if you move your sights away from dieting and instead concentrate on your mental well-being and starting the year right by using exercise to feel good, you’re more likely to stick to your goals, so says a leading Edinburgh leisure and sport provider.

Ally Strachan, Group Fitness Manager at Edinburgh Leisure explains, “January is the month when thousands of Scots resolve that this is the year that they will get fit or lose weight; with those resolutions often gone out of the window by the end of the first week.

“However, if we turn this around and focus on the mental wellbeing and the feel-good factor you often get after exercising, it can change a person’s psychological approach to why they’re wishing to change things. This means those resolutions stay around for a lot longer and exercise is no longer a chore but a pleasure.”
