At InspireAll we know how much you miss our leisure centres, swimming centres and sports facilities, especially at this time of year. We also know how much you miss spending time with others when you walk through our doors; we feel the same about each and every member of our community.
That’s why you can follow our centres on Facebook and Instagram, enjoy our health and wellbeing podcasts and stay up to date with daily updates and ideas on how to stay fit, active and most of all…connected!

- A selection of over 100 OnDemand classes, in partnership with Technogym some from your own instructors including Yoga, Pilates and HIIT to enjoy whenever it suits you
- Live-streamed classes for some sites from your own InspireAll instructors.
- Workouts of the day – easy to follow exercises to allow you to continue your training at home.

2021 promises to bring better things, spring is fast approaching and the UK vaccine program has already gathered enough pace to start making a difference. We are looking forward to opening our doors again as soon as we are able to. Until then we will be here for you online, through the InspireAll app and on social media where many of our team are working hard to keep our pages up to date with new, interesting and engaging content.
Be there for each other too, stay in touch with the friends you enjoy your leisure time with and don’t forget to motivate each other to stay fit, active and positive, stay in touch with us too!
Remember we are all better together.
