Physical activity can provide the fuel you need to feel better. Come along to our small, friendly gym and discover how exercise can help you to cope with your condition.

Well-equipped with everything from cross trainers to treadmills, exercise bikes to free weights
Specialist equipment for people who use wheelchairs or have limited mobility
Subsidised membership fee of just £25 per year
Drop in whenever we are open, and wear whatever you like
Gym Opening Hours: 8.15am-6pm Monday-Thursday, 8.15am-1pm Fridays
Our exercise classes
If you would prefer a structured fitness programme, we have a range of fitness classes and courses. Many of these are run by trained volunteers with experience of managing a long term condition.
Free classes for members, including Tai Chi and gentle circuits
Range of paid classes, such as Pilates
The first step is to get in touch. If you would like to join our gym, we will ask you to complete a health questionnaire. If you have health problems or mobility issues, one of our team will support you to use the equipment under a ‘supervised’ membership.
Many of our members are referred by a GP, physiotherapist or community worker. If you are referred, you will receive a free six month membership to help you get started.
