Swimming

Why not make a splash and go for a swim in one of our four 25 metre length pools across the region?

Not only do we have fantastic swimming facilities, we also have a range of aqua fitness classes available as well as our respected Swim4Life lesson programme.

We offer a range of public sessions across our pools, covering all times of the day, so there is sure to be a session that suits your schedule.

Aqua classes – from traditional aqua fit to aqua jogging and even Zumba pool parties – are also the perfect addition to your fitness plan.

Did you know?

Archaeological evidence shows that swimming was practiced as early as 2500BC in Egypt, but it wasn’t until the 19th Century that it became popular as both a recreational and sport activity.

The great news is that access to our public swimming sessions is included in your Aspirations fitness membership package – but if you’re just looking for swim only membership, we do that too.
