Fitbus Service


About the Fitbus

The Reach Fitbus service runs a minibus twice a week, which picks up people at various points in Gleadless Valley, Lowedges, Batemoor and Jordanthorpe, and takes them to a local gym and pool in Heeley. People have an hour to use the gym or go for a swim before returning home. Reach staff and volunteers are on hand to provide advice, encouragement and support, and gym instructors are able to provide a personalised training programme for people to follow. This service offers a great way to exercise, socialise and make new friends. Instructors are on hand to give advice about using the equipment and the service is also a great way to meet new people. The service costs just £4.50, which includes both the transport and the admittance cost to the gym or pool

“Joining a gym can be expensive and transport can also be costly and time consuming if you don’t have a car.” 

“It’s great having fun, keeping fit and making new friends.”

  • Mondays: pick-ups start at 9:30am for the 10:15 to 11:15am gym and swim sessions
