Swimming – (Please Note this offer is currently not available)
We have partnered with Yarborough Leisure Centre ‘Active Nation’ to offer our members ‘gym & swim’ and ‘swim only’ membership options*.
Yarborough Leisure Centre, run by Active Nation, boasts a 25m swimming pool, steam room and sauna for a leisurely splash around or more serious swimming.
You’ll often hear people say that swimming is the best form of exercise, so why not take the plunge at your nearest Active National pool. More than 2.93 million people in England swim for at least 30 minutes each week and they have made a great choice as the benefits of swimming are endless.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
It’s great for shaping up. Even a gentle swim can burn over 200Kcal in 30 minutes and a fast front crawl can burn as many calories as an 8mph run.
No matter what your age, weight and physical ability, swimming and water-based activities can provide you with a workout.
It is particularly good for pregnant women and swimmers with disabilities, injuries or illnesses like arthritis because swimming can support up to 90% of the body’s weight in the water. It’s great for your mental health too and can also reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and stroke. It helps you to sleep, it’s low impact, sweat free and if you needed any more persuading it’s also a lifelong skill that could save a life.
*Terms & Conditions Apply – Please note: Our swim membership options are only available for staff.
Students, alumni and associate members may purchase a swim membership directly from Active Nation, Yarborough.
