Over 50s Activities

Just because you're into your fifties (or sixties) doesn't stop you getting into aerobics, swimming, badminton, or even fitness centres.

Maintaining your physical fitness becomes more important the older you are. Regular suitable exercise can really benefit our bodies.

Why exercise?

  • You'll look and feel great. 
  • It's a great stress beater. 
  • It can keep you strong, flexible and full of energy. 
  • It will help you control your weight and keep you in good shape 
  • It helps keep you mobile and independent, particularly later in life 
  • It can help you relax and sleep well. 
  • It helps to reduce blood pressure, and the risk of coronary heart disease and osteoporosis (brittle bones) in later life. 
  • It's a good way to meet friends and develop new interests. 
  • The more active you are, the more you will be able to do.
    And it's fun!

Bradford's Leisure Centres and Swimming Pools offer a range of exercise and sports activities to suit everyone.

If you haven't exercised for a while, have an existing medical condition for which you're being treated or any other concerns about your health, have a chat with your G.P. before taking part in any physical activity.

Sessions are constantly being added and times and days of existing sessions may change. We recommend that you contact the Centres or Swimming Pools before attending.
