Once January’s over and 2020 starts to feel normal again, (no scribbling the ’19’ out at the end of the date anymore!) so why not get some inspiration from us to make your February ‘Fit!’

If you’ve started your new fitness regime, well done!

January is always the hardest month to get on the bandwagon, reduced choccies everywhere, 50% in your favourite restaurant…so time to cut out those demons this month and get motivated.

At Quorum Business Park, we host a variety of events and Q Card offers that incorporate sports and well-being, including free tennis lessons, and circuit training starting this Spring!

Not to mention to range of classes they have available at on-site Pure Gym.

First two weeks of Jan you can also join up with no joining fee, and get your first month free using the code SAVEHALF. Sign up here.

Sitting at your desk all day can really take its toll on your joints!

Even introducing some gentle seated exercises to your daily routine can improve your mobility and help prevent falls, especially if you have a sedentary lifestyle. Take a look at our recommended desk exercises here.
