The gym – Live Well Centre

A unique project by:

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. Just speak to a member of our team and they’ll match you with the services you need.

We don’t offer standard memberships but to discuss if our gym can meet your needs, please contact The Live Well Centre directly.

SPA Team

This is an Exercise Referral programme delivered by the SPA team. It is a free 12-week programme for those with pre-existing health conditions, people recovering from illness and older adults who would benefit from exercise to improve their overall health and wellbeing. Following receipt of your referral, a member of the team will contact you to start the journey. Once you have discussed your needs you will be advised on which sessions may be best for you. A bespoke tailored programme will then be created for you. Sessions include Aquarobics, Tai-chi for Health and Rehabilitation; Gym Based Session, Chair Based Exercise, Wellbeing Sessions for clients with mental health issues, Neuro Bootcamp and Stroke Improvement.
