Let's get active!

Fit in the Community is all about getting more active. It's about making sport and exercise fun, rather than intimidating – and we want everyone to get involved! 

There’s loads happening across the city – from jogging to jazz dance, from aerobics to Zumba! The classes are low costing or free and you don’t need any level of physical fitness or experience to take part. It’s all about having a really good time with like-minded people.

Love the session – run the session!

And the great thing about Fit in the Community is that if you enjoy what you’re doing, there’s the opportunity to access loads of FREE courses and training that could help you lead a session and teach others what you’ve learnt. 

Or if that’s not your thing, you might want to just spread the word about Fit in the Community to your friends, family and neighbours.

Our events are always held in the heart of the community, right on your doorstep. We want to make sure that everyone has the same chance to come out and take advantage of what we have to offer. 

We’re affordable

We’ve a range of low costing or FREE classes and courses and training that are waiting for you.

We know that not everyone likes the same thing. With this in mind, we offer a wide variety of programs. Whether you want to take part in team games, individual activities, or just find a way to meet new people and make new friends, we’ve got something for everyone! 

We're about more than just fitness and activity.

We believe in not only offering the widest selection of activities, but providing quality activities. Well prepared activities, well run, with the right equipment.


Join the movement

We promise to change the way that community physical activity is lead and delivered and to empower those who want to be empowered.

I feel good because I’ve done a workout. I don’t do any other exercise at all apart from walking and playing with the kids. So it is the only exercise that I really do and you do wake up in the morning burning so you know you’ve done a good job.
