As an all inclusive peak or off-peak* member of BwD Leisure you have access to over 200 classes per week, three gyms, two pools and two saunas/steam rooms across our three main sites.

Classes should be booked in advance and due to COVID-19 restrictions we are currently taking bookings for the gym and the pool.  As a member you can book up to 8 days in advance via our app or through your online account.  If you have any issues accessing these please contact the Leisure Hub on 01254 585555 or email

As our sessions are very popular we do operate a waiting list system and ask that if members have to cancel they do so three hours before the start of the class.  You can cancel on the app or via your online account.  Non-attendance or late cancellation will result in a strike being added to your account.  Three strikes in 30 days will mean that youwill not be able to book any sessions for 30 days.

Our saunas and steam rooms are currently closed due to COVID-19 restrictions but we hope to have them back open soon.
