Milton Keynes shopping centre teams up with local gym to offer free fitness scans and consultations

It is all part of the shopping centre’s new “Mind, Body & New You” initiative.

Milton Keynes-based gym, Energie Fitness, has partnered with centre:mk on the initiative with a pop-up pod in Middleton Hall.

The pod will be outside John Lewis from 15th until end of January and visitors will be able to receive free 1 to 1 health & wellbeing consultations via walk-up and pre-booked appointments.

The gym’s state of the art ‘Boditrax’ scanner will be available in the privacy of the pod, to ascertain their metabolic age (how old the machine thinks they are), body fat percentage, muscle mass and other key metrics.

The Energie Fitness team will then use the data to offer free personalised advice in terms of exercise, healthy eating and hints and tips to help shoppers make some positive changes to lead a healthier lifestyle.

centre:mk will also be using the initiative to highlight new healthier menu options at its restaurants and promote the wide range of health, wellbeing and fitness brands and products available throughout the centre.

It aims to inspire shoppers to make 2022 a year of renewed health focus and wellbeing.

Rob Francis, Club Owner at Energie Fitness said of the initiative: “We are really proud to be supporting centre:mk’s Mind, Body & New You campaign this January, with our free 1 to 1 consultations.

"The Boditrax scanner we’ll be bringing along is a fantastic piece of equipment, which can help quickly identify what’s going on with our bodies and that data, combined with our expertise in wellbeing and personal training, helps us to look at giving guests individual advice and targets to help reach their fitness goals.”

Kevin Duffy, Centre Director added, “Wellbeing is not just about exercise and diet, it’s about mindfulness, relaxation and mental health. We want to use January to help our shoppers to start afresh. We have plenty of brilliant retailers and brands who specialise in pampering and relaxation as well as the more traditional exercise and fitness products available too. We want to help everyone to start their own personal journey to be the best they can be in 2022.”
