FREE martial arts sessions are on offer across Ayrshire to help people in the area get fighting fit in the new year.

The initiative, launched by potato brand Albert Bartlett, is an excellent opportunity for those looking to kick off 2022 with a healthy mindset by getting active after the festive season.

The scheme offers one free tae kwon-do class in either Cumnock Ayr, Kilmarnock or Irvine, and one free Senjokai karate class in Cumnock, Tarbolton, Ayr, Symington or Stewarton.

All you have to do to sign up is buy a promotional pack of Albert Bartlett Rooster potatoes.

Michael Jarvis, head of marketing at Albert Bartlett, added: “With many people entering the new year with a healthy mindset, the sports sessions are an excellent way to get fit and active in a fun and exciting way.

“We’ve tried to offer as wide a variety as possible so people can choose something totally up their street, whether that’s a sport they already enjoy or something completely different that they fancy taking up.

“The activities are suitable for families too and make for a great day out, particularly in January which can be tedious at the best of times.

“To take part, just pick up a promotional pack of Albert Bartlett Rooster potatoes to claim your free session.

“And why not finish off your day with a healthy potato dish, the best carbohydrate to fuel your workouts. It’s a win win!”
