Spotlight on keeping fit
The start of a new year is often when we make a decision to get fit and take more exercise. Our selection of archive photographs today shows the various ways that folk achieved that aim.
Clockwise, from top left, the first photograph shows the members of the Birkhill Amateur Boxing Club, which was based at Lochee United Football Club Gym at Thomson Park in Dundee.
Pictured with the boys are Alec Mcinnes, left, secretary Joe Duffy, centre, and John Scott, right.
The next picture shows a scene from the opening night of the Aristocrat Leisure Centre, North Lindsay Street, Dundee, in April 1982.
A group of pupils are pictured during a trampolining session at Lawside Academy, Dundee, in May 1966.
The last picture shows four pupils from Forthill Primary School, Dundee, as they attempt to climb the ropes in the gym hall.
