Free over 50’s gym sessions for Knutsford residents

By on October 14, 2017

Knutsford based Anytime Fitness have launched a new initiative to encourage over 50’s to take steps towards a longer and healthy life.

The ‘One You Wednesday’s’ campaign aims to support those aged over 50 to be physically active by offering members of the public free taster sessions this month.


Local couple John and Jane Normanton, aged 74 & 78 train three times a week with Personal Trainer, Jason Henshall and said, “We joined because it was purposeful and clean, the staff were helpful and the equipment state of the art”.

Jason said, “It’s great to have members of all ages and abilities training here. It is really important as you get older to remain fit and healthy and that you follow a plan tailored to you”.

Ashley Helsby the Club manager said “A lot of the people who’ve been in to try out the sessions have said that they’ve felt intimidated in other gyms and it is important that locals know we offer equipment that improves flexibility and posture as well as the strength and cardio machines you would expect. There is a real sense of community here in Knutsford and it’s great to see people of all ages improving their health with the help of our team”.
