Scheme for Derbyshire people to get fit

PEOPLE wanting to get fit are being asked to sign up to Active Derbyshire’s 13 in 13 Challenge, which involves signing up to take part in 13 sessions of physical activity in 13 weeks.

Starting anytime in January, anyone can take part regardless of age, ability or current fitness level.

Ange Kirkham, Active Lifestyles officer for Derbyshire Sport, said it was an opportunity not to be missed for those looking to get trimmer in the New Year.

By logging on to, people can browse hundreds of activities from archery to Zumba, and aerobics to walking.

Anyone signing up will be entered into a prize draw for sporting equipment to sports lessons.
