LEISURE East Devon is combating obesity and helping people be healthy by scrapping membership joining fees for two weeks.

The trust, which manages Exmouth Swimming and Leisure Centre, Royal Avenue, and Exmouth Tennis and Leisure Centre, Withycombe Village Road, is scrapping its introduction fees for new members until Sunday, October 19.

The offer covers all of its centres across East Devon and represents a saving of over £40.

David Pagett, Chief Executive of Leisure East Devon (LED), said: "We're pleased to be able to mark our exciting October by announcing this special savings offer.

"Traditionally, the autumn and run-up to Christmas has been a time when people prefer to hibernate and put off any thoughts about getting fit until the New Year.

"What we want to remind everyone is that now is an ideal time to think about joining a gym to get active and improve your fitness.

"Getting into a new regime will be much harder if you put it off until New Year resolution time - if you get active now you'll be in a much better shape to enjoy Christmas without feeling too guilty, and you can really hit the ground running in 2009.

"LED offers a range of money-saving membership options and with fantastic savings for those who join up between 7 and 19 October, there's no better time to get started. "As well as superbly-equipped gyms that are staffed by friendly, well qualified exercise specialists, the centres offer a variety of sports, dance and exercise classes for children and adults.

"All of these activities help improve fitness levels and can be lots of fun. Some centres, including one in Exmouth, also offer swimming - a fantastic form of exercise for all age groups".
