Young Lifestyle (11-15 year olds)


Young Lifestyle is a membership for 11-15 year olds. It gives you access to our gyms and swimming pools.

Our leisure centres have reopened. Only gyms and swimming pools that were operating prior to the recent lockdown will be open, but we will be launching a virtual fitness class programme soon. Classes will be streamed live on our facebook page @DurhamThriveActive. We will be monitoring government guidance closely and will restart fitness classes in our leisure centres as soon as we are able to.
