Active Health is a programme of activities held at Beau Sejour Leisure Centre aimed at helping you to improve your levels of fitness, strength, balance and mobility.

The classes are supervised by our trained instructors who are on hand to monitor your progress and to keep a look out for any problems or worries you may have.
