Exercise for Health

L Leisure Exercise Referral Scheme

Regular physical activity can help you manage your weight, have a positive effect on you mentally, improve your muscle and joint functions, and benefit your heart health too. Not only will it help you manage and control existing conditions, but it will help protect you from developing other health complications as well.

L Leisure’s exercise for health scheme in partnership with Nottingham West Primary Care Network has been designed to help you live a healthier and happier lifestyle following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our exercise for health scheme aims to provide opportunities for people living with underlying mental or physical health conditions to become more active and provide safe and effective access to various activities.

What does the scheme involve?

We provide support, encouragement and guidance from our highly qualified gym team to best advise you on how you can live a healthier lifestyle that you will enjoy and meets the needs of your health conditions. Our gym staff can work with you to create you a plan to follow when you come to our gyms so that you have the structure and knowledge you need to take this journey on independently.

On our exercise for health scheme you have full and unlimited access to Kimberley Gym & Swim, Bramcote Leisure Centre and Chilwell Olympia.
