Give your loved ones a healthy heart this Valentine's Day.  London Borough of Hounslow leisure centres are opening their doors over the weekend of Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th February and planning lots of free activities.

Brentford Fountain is holding a bonanza open weekend to celebrate completion of its recent refurbishment work with free classes from spinning to street dance, and for the more competitive types, there’s a five minute distance row challenge in the gym.

The professional coaches will also running free coaching sessions in badminton, basketball, football and squash. For little ones, the teaching pool is being transformed into a float frenzy and a play centre club will also be running.

Lampton is holding women-only inductions and free core stability classes, while Heston Pool is opening its doors for gym trials for beginners and anyone wanting a refresher session, plus free swimming coaching.

With activities for the kids, classes and challenges for a range of abilities from starters to regular visitors, there is something for everyone.

It’s a great way to spend time together with the family and the ones you love - and do something that will get your heart beating faster. Or if you’re on your own on why not try one of the classes and take care of your own heart?

So forget the roses, think outside the chocolate box and do something that will really show you care - look after your loved one’s heart. 

*Free Spinning Classes until end March*

Brentford Fountain is running free women only half hour “spinning” sessions on weekday mornings.  Run by a professional coach, the sessions are open to newcomers and use the specialised spin bikes in the fitness studio. Music helps to create a fun and highly energised activity and is good for burning calories and general fitness.

Jo Valks, community sports development manager has been organising the sessions: “We’re running the free women sessions over the next two months and also hope to see what other activities those taking part would like”.
