WOODFORD Lodge Sports Centre in Winsford is now offering half price gym membership to help residents get into shape in the New Year.

The centre was inundated with new members after cutting the cost of memberships in the autumn, and the success has prompted Chester and District Sports and Recreation Trust (CADSART), who run the centre, to extend the offer until March 2009.

The gym has a range of state-of-the-art exercise machines including treadmills, exercise bikes, cross-trainers and rowing machines, as well as a variety of weight training equipment.

It is open from 5-10pm Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm on Saturday and 9am-6pm on Sunday. For more information and prices call the centre on 01606 596984.
