Something for Everyone
For those that wish to try something new or add to their existing physically active lifestyle, the website is ideal, giving you lots of ideas on easy ways to stay active.
You will be able to see what activities are happening in your area, with our easy to use website, both in the leisure centres and in the community. For inspiration, check out “the most popular activity” section to see what others are doing in your area. You can also keep up to date by ‘subscribing to our mailing list’ and viewing our latest ‘News’ and events.
Our structured physical activity 12 week programme may be right for you, if you would rather have a little more support. We offer a heavily discounted membership package of £30 for 12 weeks. Included in your package you will receive a gym membership, entitling you to go swimming, to the gym and try out various exercise classes too.
Whilst on the structured physical activity programme, you will have your own instructor and be part of a regular group meeting once a week. Your instructor will also help and advise you on what other sessions may be appropriate and beneficial.
The ‘Up & Active’ Team also offer a wide variety of programmes which are designed to help people get more active and lose weight. The activities are run by specially trained members of staff.
These activities are supported by online resources and information to help you reach your goals.
These structured programmes do not require a referral from your GP or health professional, as long as any condition you may have is controlled and stable and that you don’t have any underlying risk factors that might stop you from taking part in these courses.
