Our aim is to provide good quality, friendly exercise classes for all, to inspire fitness in the community.
A huge thank you to all our members for their loyalty and support over the last 18 months. Amazing!
We want to make your fitness journey with us a positive experience so we have been busy preparing all of our venues ready for our return in September. Smaller classes, more classes but better than ever!
We are temporarily unable to welcome any new members while we comply with government guidelines on social distancing and class content but we can always give advice and support in other ways.
Contact us anytime if you have any questions and we would be more than happy to help.
Maggie and the Activate team.
"These classes are the best!
After many years of attending many different fitness classes I am reassured I have found the best.
I now understand what to expect from a "good fitness instructor" .
My fitness has improved beyond recognition and I am constantly reminded by all instructors about technique, how to adjust intensity and how to work around any existing injuries.
All of the team has the ability to teach a number of fitness levels within the same group, a rare skill."
— Eve Hammond
"I’ve been coming to classes for over 10 years and they have played a huge part in my fitness and wellbeing.
Maggie and her team of excellent instructors are constantly adapting the exercises and routines to ensure that everyone can get the maximum benefit from adopting the right technique - their knowledge and enthusiasm is second to none.
Each class I attend (Fitness Pilates, CardioDance and Circuits) is very different in approach, but all are welcoming, supportive and, most of all, fun!"

"As a new mum, the CardioDance class on a Tuesday and Wednesday ticks so many boxes for me.
The all over workout was instrumental in my post natal recovery and fitness.
The team are incredibly knowledgeable and offer tailored advice throughout to build up fitness levels.
The music is always motivating and distracts from the challenging cardio and core strength work.
Liz and the Crèche team take such good care of my children and knowing they are just in the next room gives me real peace of mind."

I have attended Activate Fitness classes for the last fifteen years and have attended CardioDance, circuit training and Pilates at different times to suit my needs.
All the classes are well structured, considerate of all abilities and are supportive, stretch your abilities but still fun.
I have met some great people and certainly stayed fitter and more active than I would have done without them.
I currently do CardioDance and Pilates, one to provide some aerobic challenge and the second to provide support around core strength and flexibility and help me relieve the general tension in my back and shoulders.
The range of classes available are ideal to meet my different needs at different times of life.
