Gedling Borough Council leisure centres are now taking bookings for their indoor exercise classes that will return from Monday 17th May.

The leisure centres re-opened their pools, gyms and outdoor classes on 12th April, but have been unable to offer indoor classes until the government’s roadmap eases restrictions on 17th May.

Carlton Forum, Redhill, Calverton and Arnold Leisure Centres have all seen lots of existing members and new customers through their doors since re-opening, but their teams know that some people are waiting for the indoor classes to return before they come back and kick start their fitness at the centres.

As well as all of the previous classes returning, the centres are going to be introducing the world famous Les Mills BODYPUMP classes. The strength-based workouts are popular across the globe, due to the great results they deliver to participants.

All classes are available to book online, via the app or by calling the centres. To book, customers will either need a Gedling Leisure Card, which is free to order at, to pay as they go, or to be a DNA member (arranged by calling a centre). All classes are included in the membership. There is currently no joining fee and no contract.

People can also try any of the classes, gyms or pools for free, with a 3 day pass, which is also available to order online.

Trained and experienced staff are on hand to help people get started, or they can simply book a session and come along. Free Boditrax assessments are currently available at all gyms and can be booked by calling a centre.

The leisure centres all have extra safety measures in place to keep customers and staff safe on their visits. The measures include limiting the number of people in the centres at any time, additional spacing between equipment to enable social distancing, safety signage and floor markers and additional cleaning sessions. There are cleaning stations in all areas with hand sanitisers and all equipment is cleaned regularly throughout each day.

Councillor Henry Wheeler, Portfolio Holder for Housing, Health and Wellbeing for the council said:

“We know that many of our members are eagerly awaiting the return of their favourite classes and our instructors can’t wait to get started with them either. We think the new classes will prove really popular too and all of the classes along with the other facilities at the leisure centres and the experienced instructors, will help all of us to get back into improving our fitness safely.”
