Our fully equipped gyms feature a variety of equipment and expert instructors who can help you plan a unique programme and keep you motivated to achieve your goals, whether you’re looking to build muscle, improve your general fitness or rehabilitate from an injury.

Accessible & Inclusive

We believe that our facilities and activities should be accessible and inclusive  to everyone who wants to use them. All of the Tendring District centres have  been adapted for wheelchair users and disabled visitors and we’re always looking for ways we can improve the services and facilities we offer and make  a positive contribution to the local community.

Lessons & Courses

We’re passionate about teaching children the benefits of being active and family is at the heart of every one of our centres.

A programme of lessons and  courses runs throughout the year and includes gymnastics, soccer skills,  trampolining and many other options. We also provide special sessions to  keep kids moving and having fun throughout the school holidays.
