      Fitness and exercise centre

      It’s never too late to start being more active, whatever your age or ability – your body and mind will thank you for it. Not only can regular physical activity help lower the risk of many chronic diseases; it can also help reduce stress, anxiety and depression, as well as lower the risk of dementia. Best of all, it’s free and you can even build it into your day with every day activities if the gym’s not for you!

      Get your day off to a flyer! On September 27 2017 we’re supporting UK Active’s National Fitness Day, the biggest celebration of physical activity the UK has ever seen. Our campaign, Flying Start, is designed to encourage everyone to reap the benefits of starting the day by being active. Find out more here!
