Try a free gym or swim session this weekend

This weekend [18-20 March 2022], BH Live is inviting local residents to come along and try a free swim or gym session and learn how being regularly active could improve health and wellbeing.

The open weekend is running in selected leisure centres across the region from Friday 18 – Sunday 20 March 2022 inclusive and includes a free to attend gym workout (16+ years only) and / or swim in a public swimming session.

Participating centres are:

Bournemouth and Poole

  • Littledown
  • Pelhams Park
  • Sir David English Sports Centre
  • Stokewood
  • BH Live Active Corfe Mullen


  • Mountbatten Leisure Centre
  • Pyramids, Southsea
  • Charter Community Sports Centre

Rob Cunningham, BH Live’s Head of Leisure says,

“As a social enterprise, one of our aims is to encourage more people to take part in physical activity. While many people have returned to visiting their local leisure centre on a regular basis, for some people it’s not been as easy to get back into a routine.

“We want to show that our centres are safe places to visit and we are here for everyone. Well-equipped and friendly, we have lots of different ways for people to enjoy physical activity along with the health and wellbeing benefits it provides.”

Everyone is welcome to come along and try a free gym session (+16 years) or swim and there is no need to book.

See or the BH Live Active app for session times and more information.

Gym and public swimming sessions are available on a first come first served basis. Classes and premium pool activities such as Wet and Wacky / Floats and Fun are not included.
