Our new Low impact classes at Springfield and Les Quennevais Sports Centre, starting from Tuesday 2nd April, are designed to minimize stress on your joints and muscles with exercises designed to be easy on the body, to help you to become more active and mobile.

We understand that it can feel daunting to start an exercise programme or class, especially if you haven’t been active for a while.

That's why our low-impact classes are suitable for individuals with joint concerns or those simply beginning their fitness journey. By offering exercises that are gentle on the body, we aim to create a welcoming environment where everyone can thrive.

Low impact exercises offer significant benefits for individuals with injuries or chronic conditions by providing a gentle way to stay active and improve overall health.
