From lessons to fitness - swimming is a great workout!

Swimming

Swimming is an activity for everybody, whether you want to get healthier, fitter, or just have fun or relax. No matter what your age, weight and physical ability; swimming and water-based activities can provide you with a whole body workout, great for shaping up and even a moderate swim can burn over 200 calories in half an hour.

You can start swimming at any age.  If you want to learn to swim we offer classes for all age groups from parent and baby through to adults.  For the more experienced we offer lane swimming sessions at different times throughout the day as well as offering a range of fun water based exercise classes for you to enjoy.

If you're recovering from injury or have limited mobility swimming offers a low impact and non-weight bearing exercise.
