Active Forever is our health and wellness programme, helping you make positive lifestyle changes that can lead to lower medication, less pain and an increased quality of life.

Please note not all activities are available at all sites.

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