Get fit for free – well for a day at least. This Saturday and Sunday (April 28-29) the newly renovated Golden Lane Sport & Fitness in Fann Street, Barbican (EC1Y 0SH) is offering free taster sessions from 10am- 4pm, ranging from a swim in their fabulous Grade II listed pool to aqua aerobics. For those who prefer to exercise on dry land, the gym is also offering fitness training for 13-18 year olds and circuit training for adults; while those after a more serious carb burn can partake in Zumba and Boxercise classes. Outside, family fun includes tennis, netball and rounders. Carolyn Piper, the organiser, is also running prizes and competitions to encourage the whole community to get involved. It’s practically a mini-Olympics. Kimberley Simpson
