Horsehay customer notice

Friday 30 July 2021 new ICT infrastructure is being installed in our Aspirations Gym at Horsehay.

This will mean that on the morning of Friday 30 July 2021 some of the current cardio equipment at Horsehay only will be out of use while the new infrastructure is being installed inside the gym.

This is an exciting step towards us being able to install the brand new innovative PulseMove gym equipment which will help gym users track their fitness goals more accurately like distance, speed, heartrate and even create personalised workout plans.

Thank you in advance for your patience – and as always please feel free to use any of our other Aspirations Gyms during this time. We will make an update after the work has been completed.

Leisure facility


Swimming is the perfect activity for people of all ages and abilities, it's cost-effective, and has a wide range of both physical and psychological benefits.

The most obvious advantage to swimming is that it's a great form of exercise. Around 30 minutes of steady, paced lane swimming can burn over 200 calories, and brings the same benefits as 45 minutes of land-based exercise; the pressure and resistance of the water makes your body work harder. As well as burning calories, swimming is great for toning up as it works the muscles all over your body. And as the water takes your weight, it is a perfect method of low-impact exercise that is ideal for people with mobility problems, and those who just wish to protect their joints.

Swimming can also improve your overall health. It's an ideal workout for your heart and circulation, as you are using your whole body to swim; therefore your heart has to pump blood harder than it normally would to your arms and legs. Additionally, length swimming is great for your lungs as it forces you to breathe in a deeper, more rhythmic fashion.

Telford and Wrekin Leisure Services host the 4 biggest swimming pools within Telford. All our pools are 25 metres long and are great for improving fitness through swimming as well as enjoying your leisure time.
