MECCA Bingo has announced it is planning to host a new bingo exercise crossover class.

Mecca’s Spingo concept will see spin-instructors-come-bingo-callers don their lycra to lead classes from the saddle of a spin bike. While pedalling away to upbeat tracks, players will be able to experience the thrill of filling in their bingo card while getting fit.

The idea for the new concept comes following a survey by Mecca which revealed that 43% of the nation say they’ve made a New Year’s fitness resolution for 2024, with over a fifth (22%) adding that ‘exciting’ workout concepts are more likely to motivate them to stay on top of their goals. In response, Mecca Bingo has stepped in to apply its expertise and inject the excitement into workouts. 

Sarah O’Neill, head of innovation for Mecca Bingo said: “Pace, adrenaline pumping competition and joy - the worlds of bingo and spin classes have a lot more in common than people may think.

“That’s why we’re excited about shaking up expected and mundane exercise routines and breathing fresh life into New Year workouts with the development of our Spingo concept! Whether participants are joining for a chance to hit the jackpot prize or an endorphin high, we’re confident Spingo will hit the mark.”

65% of UK residents reveal that they have previously made a fitness-related New Year resolution, but that a quarter (25%) have given up by January 10, and more than a third (36%) have called it quits by the middle of the month. Many say they don’t find exercise enjoyable (27%) or the gyms are too busy (31%), while 11% went as far as saying that they have been dreading the thought of a January health kick.
