- Renaissance The Gentle Gym

We are delighted to announce a new partnership with the Renaissance Fitness and Wellbeing Centre in Canterbury. To be known as The Gently Gym, the Centre will provide a supportive environment for anyone who is relatively inactive or has mobility issues that prevent them from using Active Life's traditional gyms.

The Gentle Gym offers a full body motor-assisted circuit where the equipment shares the workload, adjusting to individual strength and mobility. It's particularly beneficial to those recovering from joint replacements, strokes, falls, sports injuries and conditions such as arthritis, MS and Parkinson's.

Renaissance and Active Life will also provide small group training sessions including Yoga, Pilates, and Stretch and Tone. Membership at just £22 a month also includes unlimited swimming, off-peak water fitness and 'Gentle' classes on offer at Active Life Centres. For more information download The Gentle Gym overview
