Active Lifestyle Scheme

The Active Lifestyle Scheme supports inactive people with a medical condition who are referred by their GP or healthcare professional (referral criteria apply) to build regular and sustainable exercise into their everyday lives.

Further information

Regular physical activity can benefit your heart health, help manage your weight, improve your muscle and joint functions, and positively affect your mind. Not only will it help you manage and control existing conditions, but it can help protect you from developing other health complications too.

How does it work?

Under the supervision of qualified instructors, every participant will be offered the guidance and support they require to enable them to take the first steps to leading an active and healthy lifestyle. 

The Active Lifestyle Scheme is delivered across all seven Active Leicester leisure centres and customers can use the most convenient centre to them at any one time – you are not restricted to one centre. 

Once accepted onto the Active Lifestyle Scheme*, you will then be invited to attend a Welcome Group – this will allow you to meet the instructor, complete all the relevant paperwork, gain information on the activities on offer and how the Active Lifestyle membership works.  

*Due to high demand for the Active Lifestyle Scheme we cannot accept applications from people who have previously used the scheme and/or if people are an Active Leicester member already.

This service is only available for people who are inactive and who have a medical condition.
