Health activities in south Sheffield

  • Wednesday - 1.15pm-2.15pm Gym/Swimbus (Pick-ups start at 12.30pm)


We take people to the gym or pool at Heeley on the gym/swimbus. We pick up from

various places in Gleadless Valley, Batemoor, Jordanthorpe, Lowedges and Newfield Green,

take them to the gym or pool where they can have an hour's exercise, then we drop them off


In the gym, there is a wide variety of equipment for people to use including treadmills, static

bikes and cross trainers. Gym users will be given a full induction and instructors will design

a programme tailor made to their needs.


Swimming is a great form of exercise; it gives an all over workout and is non-weight bearing,

meaning that there is no pressure on the joints.


Prices including transport:

Gym: £3.50 Swim: £4.00
