Community gyms

Want to get fit and don't know where to start? Community gyms promote physical activity and encourages you to make big changes to your lifestyle. We do this by coming to you and offering the opportunity to take part in new fitness activities.

Community gyms aim to create permanent opportunities for people to take part in physical activities, particularly for those who live in isolated and socially deprived areas. While we are situated in a particular location, we look at the demand for activities and potential locations for permanent facilities which the community can then run itself.
