Get more active

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.

Our gym

Gyms can be intimidating places, but our gym is different. It’s a welcoming environment where you can meet new people and exercise at your own pace.

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.


What’s next?

The first step is to get in touch. Come along to one of our drop in sessions to find out more, pop into reception to ask about joining the gym or give us a call on 0131 661 3366.

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. 


"When I started taking the groups out it gave me so much confidence because I felt I had purpose and because I enjoyed what I was doing"
