When managing a long-term health condition, being active can often help you to manage your symptoms more effectively. Furthermore, if you are awaiting surgery or treatment for a health condition, pre-habilitative activity can help to make a significant difference to the ability to cope with treatment and support a swifter recovery.

It can often be very difficult to find the right type of exercise, especially when you are managing pain and are not used to regular physical activity.

Active Forever provides access to the latest therapy equipment, low impact exercises, social activities, as well as support from experienced and specialist wellbeing practitioners.

After completing Active Forever, we encourage you to continue your healthier lifestyle with us. You have the option to sign up as a member at a concessionary rate of £27 per month.

You have a month to benefit from this reduced membership price; after this month has lapsed, standard membership rates apply.

Are you a health professional?

For anyone that is unsure, just come. It’s not just a place for the young, active and mobile. There are varying ages and sizes – it’s for everyone. You’ll be surprised how friendly and welcoming everyone is. I’ve been blown away – it’s so much more than a leisure centre!

I initially started on a short six-week programme. But I enjoyed it that much that I’ve been doing it ever since! Once I started, I knew I was getting myself better and I kept it going.

I remember being asked…‘what is your happy place?’, and I said, ‘the toning suite’ – as the Wellness Hub was then called.
