We would like to advise those customers using the Les Mills virtual workouts that we are aware there is currently an issue with the link on the website. We are working to resolve this. Please bear with us.

Keeping fit and well, both physically and mentally, is a challenge facing us all during these unprecedented times.

We have launched #stayfitcheltenham as a way of offering a virtual fitness programme and also an online platform where people can share their pictures and tips on what they’re doing to keep fit and healthy during the current health crisis.

The virtual programme offers a range of online activities from virtual workouts and short exercise videos to fun routines for youngsters and even waterless swimming practice for children while they are unable to visit the Leisure at pool.

You can find activities at The Cheltenham Trust YouTube Channel. From virtual workouts and short exercise videos to fun routines for youngsters, families and even waterless swimming practice for children who can’t attend lessons.

Content will be uploaded to our channel on a regular basis.

WAYS TO PRACTICE SWIM SKILLS AT HOME

Posted on: 14 April 2020

Your little ones can practice their swim skills at home with waterless exercises.  Some of the key fundamental parts of swimming can still be practiced.  Make a fun non-pool swim practice time that all the family can enjoy. The kids continue to learn whilst the rest of the family can support with the exercise to encourage being active together.

REASONS TO WALK MORE
Posted on: 3 April 2020

Although our Cheltenham Walking for Health groups have stopped due to the COVID-19 crisis we’re currently in, regular exercise is still encouraged and walking is a great form of this that we can all do whilst maintaining our distance from others.

Walking regularly is one of the easiest ways to stay active to achieve the recommended target of 150minutes of activity a week. This can be broken down into 5 x 30 minutes a week. Most of us should be aiming for approximately 10,000 steps a day and while this may seem overwhelming at first, the key to success is building up slowly.

FAMILY FITNESS
Posted on: 31 March 2020

While we may make excuses for not always being able to find the time to train and exercise each week, spending time together as a family is something most of us value as essential.

Why don’t we combine the two and make fitness and family time a priority and start to build the love for exercise in the kids from a young age. This could range from walking together, bike rides and even hosting a family dance off in the living room.

Find a list of family fitness activities here to inspire you.

Now is the time that we need to support each other to adjust to the lifestyle changes and stop the spread of COVID-19.
