For inspiration, check out “the most popular activity” section to see what others are doing in your area, keep up to date by ‘subscribing to our mailing list’, viewing our latest ‘News’ and events.
If you require a little more support, our structured physical activity 12 week programme may be right for you. We offer a heavily discounted membership package, of £30 for 12 weeks, in which you will receive an Up & Active membership, entitling you to go swimming, use the gym and try out various exercise classes; something to suit all abilities.
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.
These activities are supported by online resources and information to help you reach your goals.
These 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.
