As the leading sports and leisure service provider in Fife, we’re not just focused on delivering the best gyms, fitness classes and membership programmes – we’re passionate about making a difference to local communities.
As a charitable trust, we reinvest profits back into our facilities and programmes so that our customers can enjoy the best quality and choice on offer.
But, it doesn’t stop there – over the past ten years, we have delivered a self-funded health and wellbeing programme that supports people living with long-term health conditions such as cancer, dementia, diabetes, COPD and cardiac incidents.
Thanks to a dedicated team of highly-qualified instructors, we deliver 91 health classes a week, with 4000 participants attending classes to enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits experienced by getting active, as well as meeting others who are living with similar conditions to their own.
Every time someone chooses to visit one of our centres or take out a membership programme, they are already making a difference by choosing us over a private gym. And now, with the launch of our dedicated fundraising initiative, we’re asking you to help us deliver our health and wellbeing programme further and directly help people in Fife living with long-term health conditions.
Funds raised will be used to support the health and wellbeing programme delivered in our centres and community-based venues by purchasing equipment, supporting specialist instructor training or helping to secure additional instructors.
Whether it’s a one-off donation, hosting or participating in a fund-raising event, your donation is just a click away from helping more people in your local community. For details on how to donate, please email HealthWellbeing@fifeleisure.org.uk.
"After a short time, I began to enjoy the class and started to feel better – my health, my mood and motivation improved so much. I began to lose weight which was a real boost and it gave me the confidence to join a weight-loss programme. Active Options 2 has really helped my fitness levels and strength – it’s unbelievable. A week ago I was told by the cardiology team that I no longer need to take medication which was great news."
"The diagnosis of Parkinson’s was a complete shock, it literally happened overnight. The instructors for both the classes I attend are fantastic, they are knowledgeable and motivational – I look forward to the classes every week. I feel so much better after the classes, the feel-good factor lasts for a while after. It’s not just the physical benefits I experience, I really like getting out and meeting other people who are experiencing similar issues – it’s a real boost to my morale and emotional wellbeing."
"I’ve been coming to the café for around six weeks and love the interaction with others. It’s great that every week we have a different activity to try out - I enjoyed the exercise session and it does make you feel good."
We’ll always keep fundraisers updated with the results of their efforts by showing where and how money raised is being spent with updates on our website and social media pages.
