A FITNESS enthusiast who is committed to getting Hartlepool healthy is backing the Mail’s Race for Fitness campaign.
Jaki Savage, who runs Centre Yoga and Wellbeing, in Park Road, Hartlepool, says it is important for people to have a balanced healthy body and healthy mind.
And Jaki is doing her bit to improve fitness levels in the town by offering a free class to any individuals who have backed the Mail’s campaign.
The Mail launched the Race for Fitness campaign to create a lasting legacy from the London 2012 Olympic Games and get 2,012 people to have a more healthy lifestyle.
Thanks to Jaki, residents can enjoy a pilates, Zumba, yoga, bodyball or toning class without paying a penny.
Generous Jaki is also supporting smokers attempting to kick the habit by offering a free nasal cleansing session to Race for Fitness backers.
Jaki, who lives on the Headland and has been running Centre Yoga and Wellbeing for the last three and a half years, said: “I am really committed to getting Hartlepool healthy and when I read about Race for Fitness I wanted to show my support.
“It is extremely important to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle.
“A lot of people want to keep their minds active, but you need to balance a healthy body and mind and sessions such as yoga and pilates are perfect for that.
“I want to support the individuals who have been inspired to exercise after reading about the campaign in the paper.”
Jaki says she is looking forward to the London Olympics which get underway in July and she is hoping it inspires people in the town.
“Hopefully a lot of people will be inspired to get out and exercise themselves,” she added.
“I think the majority of people will be inspired after the Olympics after they have watched the action.”
People can enjoy a free class at Centre Yoga and Wellbeing as long as they have backed the Mail’s Race for Fitness campaign.
Jaki joins an illustrious list of supporters including David Cameron and Lord Sebastian Coe.
Now it is your turn to back the campaign and show off your dedication to fitness in Olympic year.
