What is Leeds Let’s Get Active?
A programme to encourage people who do not do any physical activity to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity, once a week. Leeds Let’s Get Active supports inactive people becoming active through the provision of free access to leisure centre and community sports and activities within a supportive and welcoming environment. The opportunity is available citywide, and open to all.

Free use of all Leeds City Council leisure centres during selected activity sessions, daily. Typically one free hour every day (off peak) with an additional hour per day for 4 leisure centres: John Charles Centre for Sport, Armley, Fearnville and Middleton leisure centres. The free offer is gym and swim, except at Middleton, where a bespoke programme has been developed including fitness classes and a variety of racket sports available. The offer may change as the programme develops. Free use of community multi-sport sessions: activities will include beginners’ running, Health Walks and Active Family multi-sport activities and will be delivered in community park settings.
