Health and Fitness for all
The Health and Fitness pages detail all of the fitness classes available through our Recreation sites, from Aerobics to Yoga. Whatever you fitness interest we are sure we have something for you. All our fitness instructors are fully-qualified in their discipline to recognised standards - RSA or equivalent. Those who instruct Body Pump, Combat, Balance, Attack or RPM also hold Fitness Professional Body Training Systems qualifications. Most also hold full First Aid at Work certificates. So you are reassured you are in safe hands.
The Masters page provides more activity opportunities for those people who are not necessarily fifty, but whose needs differ from their younger counterparts. "Masters" implies skilled, mature, able and competent people. The Masters initiative is a way of helping people to carry on with physical activities they choose as long as possible.
Our new walking programme invites people to join in our instructor led strolls around Swindon from three bases, County Ground Lifestyle Centre, Highworth Recreation Centre and the Link Centre. All Centres offer set routes that are planned well in advance to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience with a chance to meet new friends as well as raise your fitness level. County Ground have introduced different types of walking including sessions aimed at Women only, Nordic Walking (with poles) and Wheelie Walks (parnets and pushchairs), as well as Outreach programmes.
The Weight Management page has details of our new course, at Dorcan Recreation Complex, that will help people to want to make diet and lifestyle changes.
