Let's get physical
In the small town of Wednesbury is a leisure centre that provides extensive exercise classes, which implements new exercise regimes when they come on to the market, as well as hosting Weight Watchers meetings; they have a fully-equipped gym, with (rather hunky) personal trainers who will show you how to get those firm thighs and rock-hard abs; and a large swimming pool to boot. Who knew your local leisure centre was so well-equipped?

I work out
Working up a sweat

See the daily timetable for specifics, but if you like new exercise classes that engage muscles you didn't know you had then Wednesbury Leisure Centre is your local 'give-it-a go' gym. Try the new Body Pump, which starts at 4.10 for non-members, which is a mix of high-intensity cardio for an all-over body workout. If you broke a sweat just reading that, how about a class of gentle- but effective 50 Plus Activity gentle exercise classes? They're designed for over 50's, and still manage to tone and hone your body with swimming and badminton classes.

Got a little junk in your trunk? Try Step, which is a lower-body cardio class that promises to tone your lower half, and make you work up a sweat.

A new pool is being installed, so when the mood strikes you, don you're swimming cossie/trunks and dive in.

I swim like an Olympian
Toe dipping recommended

Wednesbury Leisure Centre is part of the Sandwell Leisure Trust scheme so prices are much more reasonable than private gyms. It makes a great day out for families and is a cheaper alternative than expensive weekends away from home; prices vary, but on average a non-member adult will pay 5-6 per visit, and under 16's prices start from 2.00

There are also a number of disabled activities, and disabled access to the sports hall, fitness suite, disabled parking, and guide dogs are welcome.and there are Disability Activities, so all are truly welcome at the Wednesbury Leisure Centre.

The leisure centre is within easy walking-distance if you live in the surrounding area, but there are equally easy transit-links for those who aren't up for walking: the Wednesbury bus station is directly opposite the leisure centre, and it's within a 10 minute walk from the Wednesbury Great Western metro stop.

So go on, get off your bum and start working that body.
