Jogging with a difference

FITNESS fans are being invited to take to the water for jogging with a difference.

Hartlepool Borough Council’s sport and physical activity team is urging people to sign up to a programme of weekly aqua-jogging sessions in the pool at Mill House Leisure Centre, in Raby Road.

The sessions, for men and women, are held on Thursdays, from 12.15pm-1pm.

Liam Lewis, the council’s assistant sport and physical activity officer, said: “While regular jogging burns around eight calories a minute, aqua jogging uses more than 11 calories and it’s also a lot more fun.”
