In a bold new initiative, Newcaslte is trying something a bit different to help the nation lose weight.  

Celebrity chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is working alongside Newcastle City Council to ask people who live, work and play in the city to join upto the campaign #Newcastlecan and commit to losing 100,000lbs in a year.

GLL Better Leisure Centres across Newcastle are getting involved in the initiative by holding a open day on Saturday 15th April.  We are teaming up with Newcastle Can to welcome people into our centres to use our gym or attend a class for free.

Throughtout the weekend we'll have qulaified staff on hand to help with equipment, offer nutritional advice and provide some simple tips of exercises to help meet your exercise goals!  And most importantly we'll give you all the information you'll need to sign up.
