Auckland Council is offering free personalised training at 14 leisure centres in the run-up to Christmas.

The "Let's Get Moving" programme runs from October 3 to October 25 for new members, waiving the $50 joining fee and throwing in four training sessions valued at $160.

"You do need to become a member, but we're going to waive the $50 joining fee and there are no long contracts - membership is pay-as-you-go," says Rob McGee, manager - leisure for the council. Membership costs vary from centre to centre.

"With four free personalised training sessions and no joining fee, that's $210 worth of value that we're prepared to invest in getting every Aucklander to be more active more often," he says.

The training sessions must be taken by December 25.
