Melbourn Sports Centre The Winter Review The winter months have seen an influx of new members to our fitness suite here at Melbourn Sports Centre, all working hard toward their personal fitness goals or to lose the remnants of the Christmas season’s traditional over-indulgence. To help them achieve this, we’ve set up a number of gym challenges. These includes the ‘How Far Can You Go In 2009?’ challenge, which sees individuals choosing a destination to ‘travel’ to – for example, Melbourn to Edinburgh – and then trying to traverse the correct number of miles during the year by walking or running exercises alone. If the fitness suite is not for you, then why not try one of our exercise classes? We have recently added a ‘Legs, Bums & Tums’ workout to our programme, which takes place on Wednesday evenings from 7pm – 8pm. Our comprehensive lesson programme continues to go from strength to strength. Activities cur-

rently on offer include cricket, trampolining, Fun4Baby, gymnastics and Pilates. One new arrival is our Hatha Yoga class; if anyone is interested in giving this a go, it takes place on a Tuesday morning. We are proud to report that participants in our swimming lessons programme have achieved another bumper tally of high standard awards this season. Our autumn term’s Most Improved Swimmer certificate went to student Katie Tuffin. …And finally, MSC has continued its commitment towards further education and training in sport and fitness by running a G.P referral fitness course and a National Pool Lifeguard course during the February half term holiday.

Spring Into A New Season At MSC! This season sees the return of the Swimathon, being held at our pool in April 2009. The Swimathon is a charitable event, suitable for all ages and abilities. It’s a great way to get fit and raise some money for a great cause at the same time (this year’s charity is the Cancer Care Trust). Further details can be found on the Swimathon website – www. And look out for swim times at Melbourn pool in April. With the welcome return of the light evenings, why not make the most of them by hiring a tennis or badminton court? It’s a great way to get fit for the summer holidays as well as enjoy the lovely, longer days. For further details on this or any other activity, please drop in, call 01763 263313 or go online at www.
