Swimming for all abilities

Swimming is one of the most accessible and enjoyable forms of exercise that targets every muscle group in your body. Swimming is also fantastic for relaxing and general wellbeing. The soothing feeling of taking a dip is something that never goes away and research shows that swimming can reduce your stress levels and reduce anxiety and depression. It sounds like nature’s wonder drug!

Water also supports around 90% of the body’s weight, so if you have an injury, suffer from join pain or have poor mobility, swimming is by far the best way to stay active and improve your fitness levels. Although you are almost weightless in water, the resistance of the water makes your body work even harder, so 30 minutes in the pool is worth 45 minutes of the same exercise on land. Activ8 offer an assortment of aqua based classes including Aquafit, Aqua Zumba and Active+ Aquafit. These classes are hugely popular and have a friendly bunch of regulars who make each class fun and energetic.

Exclusive Over 55’s Fitness Classes

Our 50+ gentle exercise classes are tailor made to help you become fitter, increase your vitality and improve confidence. Regular attendance will improve your flexibility, muscle tone and cardiovascular fitness. You can attend any fitness classes.


Your Over 55’s membership gets you access to all Activ8 Health & Fitness Clubs. You can attend during off-peak times (anything outside of Monday – Friday 4pm-8pm). If you’re not the most confident or having been in a gym setting before, this is a great opportunity to build confidence.

Alternative Leisure Activities

At Thornaby Pavilion there is an indoor bowling green, a popular activity for those who are 55+. Becoming an Activ8 member gets you access to many leisure activities at discounted rates. Thornaby Pavilion also plays host to many Club 55 activities such as Tai Chi and Archery, all of which are free!
