The gym

We believe exercise is for everyone, which is why our onsite fitness centre is not your average gym! We support people in Middlesbrough who want to improve their lifestyle but might struggle to access traditional fitness services.

Some of our clients want an affordable way to reach a healthy weight, others are regaining their fitness after an injury. We also house programmes for people with ongoing medical conditions, finding exercises that suit their specific needs. With our support, our clients are achieving more than they thought was possible!

With over 40 pieces of equipment and a fully functional studio, we look just like a regular gym. What sets The Live Well Centre apart is the experience: from the moment you step inside, you’ll be in a friendly and non-judgmental environment, with qualified staff that work with you to set some goals and get started.

As we’re located in The Live Well Centre, our clients also have easy access to a range of other lifestyle services and resources. Perhaps you want to stop smoking, or need to brush up on your cooking skills and learn some healthy and affordable recipes. Just speak to a member of our team and they’ll match you with the services you need.

Because we aren’t your average gym, we don’t offer a standard membership – to discuss whether our fitness centre can meet your needs please contact the Gym Development Officer: Claire_Henderson@middlesbrough.gov.uk. Eligibility criteria apply.
