Leisure activities

While for some people a fitness centre is all about working out hard and getting in shape, for others the sports & leisure activities - the relaxation or social aspects - are by far the most important thing. Sports & Leisure activities come in all different forms - from vigorous to sedentary, social to solitary.

Some of the most popular leisure activities found at fitness centres include:

  • Sports clubs :

    Many fitness centres have sports facilities. From badminton to basketball you can probably find a sport that you enjoy. One of the best ways to get involved is to join a league - many teams are on the lookout for new players. For solo sports such as squash, tennis and badminton there are 'ladders' that allow you to play others of a similar ability in competitive matches.

  • Swimming :

    If a fitness centre has a pool it adds immeasurably to the options available. From lap swimming to lessons, aqua aerobics to family splash sessions, a well run pool offers something for almost everyone.

  • Spa :

    For those who like their fitness centre to offer a more relaxing option, a spa is the place to turn. Spa lovers can take a massage, relax in the steam room or sauna, or enjoy a beauty treatment.
So before you sign up to a fitness centre, check carefully to be sure it has all the options you need.
