Hambleton leisure centres are participating in next week’s International Men’s Health Week (12 – 18 June).

This year the week will focus on the potential risks of carrying too much belly fat.  Regardless of how much you actually weigh, carrying large amounts of belly fat increases  the risk of developing conditions such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.

The four centres in Bedale, Northallerton, Stokesley and Thirsk are giving away free Zest discount cards to men that attend the centres or sign up for a Zest discount card online.  The Zest discount card can be used at any of the centres to get discounts on pay-as-you-go activities.

In addition the centres are also offering free health and fitness consultations.

Ten minute drop-in sessions are taking place at:

Stokesley Leisure Centre                       Monday  12 June  between 11am and 1pm

Thirsk & Sowerby Leisure Centre           Monday  12 June  between  12noon and 2pm

Bedale Leisure Centre                           Tuesday  13 June  between 9.30 and 11.30am

Hambleton Leisure Centre                     Thursday 15 June between 11am and 1pm

Everyone attending will receive a free Zest goody bag and a copy of the Men’s Health Week book – The Man Manual.
