Fitness gives us mental strength as well as physical strength; it can make you happier, improve your sleep, help you switch off, connect with other people, raise your energy levels and increase your productivity.

Letโ€™s talk about the hidden benefits of physical activity and take time to invest in our health.

Join us this Wednesday 21st September and use the Gym free of charge!

This week, one of our duty managers - Alex - took a trip to Birch Road, handing out flyers for our fit street campaign. ๐Ÿƒ

In 2022, we are all faced with our own personal challenges, but by uniting through fitness we can find mental strength to help us cope. Itโ€™s easy to feel
overwhelmed by events at home and abroad โ€“ from the cost of living crisis and rising energy bills, to global conflict and war, or environmental concerns.

In the UK, social and health inequalities increased during the COVID-19 pandemic โ€“ and this included the gap in physical activity levels. The pandemic has taken a mental toll on the nation, as well as physical.

Thatโ€™s why this year, National Fitness Day can help remind all of us to prioritise our health and wellbeing, whatever the challenges we face each day. By investing in our health and connecting with other people through physical activity, we can improve our mental strength and feel more positive.

Use the Gym free of charge Wednesday 21st September and feel the benefits of staying physically active! ๐Ÿ’ช


Monday 19 September will be a bank holiday to coincide with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth IIโ€™s State Funeral and the last day of the period of national mourning.

The centre will be closed on 19 September as a mark of respect to Her Majesty.

The centre will reopen on 20 September as normal.

Thank you for your understanding.
