Derby leisure team launches I Can You Can campaign

Wed 20 Jan 2016

Get your year off to the right start with the I Can You Can campaign. 

Our friends at Derby City Council Leisure Centres have launched their new I Can You Can campaign to encourage people to get active this year. As part of the initiative there are plenty of exciting activities taking place to help you reach your fitness goals or simply try out something new. 

They believe that exercise is for everyone and are passionate about supporting you in getting active in 2016 and that is exactly what I Can You Can is all about. You can take advantage of 3 gyms, over 100 classes and swimming across Derby City Council's centres from just £30 a month.

Customers have been talking about their inspirational journeys to improve their lives through exercise at Derby City Council leisure centres.

Steve Barton 64, Joined Springwood Leisure Centre in May last year. He suffers from disconnect durlsa AV vistula which means he has numbness feeling in his lower body and struggles to walk unaided without a wheel chair or crutches, Steve trains three times a week up to an hour at a time. He has improved in strength by 50% since starting in both upper and lower body. He now has more energy and can walk more freely using his crutches. Before (starting at Springwood) Steve wouldn’t think about leaving the house, but now he’ll give anything a try. He also now walks his dog, but it's more the dog walking him. #icanyoucan
