Get in shape for Christmas at Abedare gym

If you’re aiming to get slim and trim in time for Christmas, then the Zenith Health and Fitness studio at Michael Sobell Sports Centre, Aberdare, can help you on your way.

Staff at the fitness studio have launched the ‘Christmas calorie countdown’ - a challenge for people to burn off as many calories as possible in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Councillor Robert Bevan, Rhondda Cynon Taf Cabinet Member for Culture and Recreation, said: “This time of year, people usually want to lose a few inches so they can enjoy the indulgences of the festive season without feeling too guilty!

"Our Christmas calorie countdown is a good way to help people get motivated to lose weight and feel fitter."

Controls are set on the measured sessions, so that a maximum of 1,000 calories are burnt in each class. Participants are advised that they must not reduce their normal calories intake.

Cardiovascular machines, weight machines, body weight exercises, circuit training routines, fitball, abdominal exercises and free weight exercises can all be used during the sessions.

Men and women are invited to join the challenge, which ends on December 14, 2009. For more information, please call the Zenith studio at Michael Sobell Sports Centre, The Ynys,
Aberdare, on 01685 874323

Rhondda Cynon Taf’s leisure centres and pools offer a huge range of classes for all ages this winter. To find your nearest centre, go to and click on leisure facilities, or call Leisure Services on 01443 400563
