Run. Jump. Play.

Invest in their future. Encouraging children and families to get active, get fit and have fun is important to us and that’s why each of our centres has a whole range of children’s activities and events running throughout the year. Our centres are a great place with lots of things to do for children of all ages, interests and budgets. Getting out and doing things with the family or just getting the children up, active and away from the computer and TV is a great way to get fit, feel good, build confidence and socialise. Whether it’s for fun, to learn a new skill or to reach a new fitness goal, there is a kids session for everyone at Active Life.

For more information on what’s on offer simply check out the details for each Active age range below.
