Moray Leisure Centre’s Fit for Life

Moray Leisure Centre

Moray Leisure Centre has joined Moray Council’s Fit Life scheme, following an open day at the Centre on Friday, 20 October.

An introductory 30% discount on the first 300 annual memberships sold out ahead of the open day. While there was some confusion about when and how to take advantage of the special offer, the Leisure Centre stated on its Facebook page that “The promotion was extremely popular selling out in under 36 hours. However, we believe that the monthly direct debits that can be purchased at reception […] as well as the annual memberships are still excellent value for money.”

Moray Council Fit Life members will be able to use the facilities from today, 22 October, coinciding with the launch of the new adult fitness class timetable and children’s swimming lesson block.

The ice rink is not included in the Fit Life membership, and the relaxation suite will be available as a bolt-on for an additional £5 monthly charge. Swimming lessons, adult fitness classes and the gym will all be included in the membership, available from £21 per month.

Moray Leisure Centre is to undergo a £500,000 refurbishment, including a £250,000 gym refit early next year.

Convener of Moray Council, Cllr Shona Morrison, is pleased to welcome Moray Leisure Centre into Moray Council’s Fit Life scheme: “We invest significant sums of money into the leisure centre in Elgin and I’m delighted that we’ll continue to work in partnership to offer high-quality leisure facilities for residents in Elgin and beyond.

“Fit Life is proving to be a hugely successful leisure membership scheme in Moray and represents excellent value for money.”

Acting Chair of the MLC board, Andrew Wood, said: “The board and staff of Moray Leisure Centre have worked tirelessly with the local authority to provide universal access for the residents of Moray to the affordable provision of health and fitness facilities.

“Elgin has long been the major gap in that provision and here at Moray Leisure Centre, we have worked with Moray Council to fill that gap in a partnership that is sustainable and fair to all parties whilst keeping focused on the community we all serve.”

Non-Executive Director of Moray Leisure Centre, Martin Gray, said: “With the refurbishment of our gym and introduction of new technologies such as the MLC fitness app, we are going to be giving the residents of Moray a first class service in health and wellbeing. This is a testament to the hard work and investment that has been made by all to benefit the community as a whole.”
