This Gym Class Rewards You With Deliveroo Credit

By Holly Brockwell on at

What better way to motivate yourself to move your flabby frame in January than with the promise of a burger, pizza, or kebab?

That's the thinking behind a new fitness class at the YMCA, which rewards you with Deliveroo credit for a free takeaway if you get through the 40-minute session.

At first glance it does seem a bit counter-intuitive to encourage people exercising to eat takeaway, but presumably the thinking is that you're going to have that takeaway anyway, so it's better to do the exercise on top. Also, you could always make healthy choices with your Deliveroo order, but we both know that's not going to happen.

In fact, if you order through Deliveroo Editions, you might be able to nab some free ice cream.

Called ROO-T Camp (Deliveroo/roo x booty camp presumably), the class is available in London, Manchester, Newcastle and Swansea. It includes lifting weights, cycling, stair climbing and balance exercises.

Joe Groves at Deliveroo comments while benching a hot dog:

"Through our partnership with the YMCA we hope to help more people on their own personal journey to achieve their fitness goals for 2019. With such a vast range of restaurants on the platform, it’s easy to find the perfect post-workout meal on Deliveroo."

Classes will be available from the 21st of January, but – sorry millennials – you have to actually phone up your local YMCA to book one. Still, you can get yourself clean, you can have a good meal, you can do whatever you feel. [Evening Standard]
