People can banish the winter blues and get fitter by joining in cycleathon sessions at Sandwell Central Library this month (January).
Five minutes on the library’s exercise bike means a mile travelled and is a good way of getting that little bit fitter.
Library staff are inviting everyone to come in and try out their exercise bike and see how many miles can be clocked up during one month.
Central Library in High Street, West Bromwich, has a range of fitness equipment to try and you can also borrow resistance bands and choose from a wide range of books on health and fitness.
Those wishing to lose weight can also take advantage of the Weigh2GO scheme where you can use smart Fitbit scales to get weighed and have the information sent straight to your phone.
Councillor Elaine Costigan, Sandwell Council’s cabinet member for public health and protection, said: “This is another good idea for people to use a few minutes at their local library to get a little fitter for the year ahead.
“People calling in for books and the other library services can have a quick workout to get a health mind and healthy body.”
