Take a virtual tour of Active Nottingham without leaving your house!

A NEW virtual tour promoting the facilities of six leisure centres in Nottingham has been launched by Active Nottingham, part of Nottingham City Council.

The online tool not only allows users to see inside each Active Nottingham leisure centre but also view spaces from 360-degree angles. During the tour, potential members can gain virtual access to the facilities and visit each building from the comfort of their mobile device or computer.

Active Nottingham is much more than just a ‘gym’ with indoor swimming pools, saunas, steam rooms and a range of exercise classes, there is something for everyone and the new virtual tour allows potential members to explore the layout and details prior to arrival.

Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, Cllr Pavlos Kotsonis, said:

“I’m delighted Active Nottingham have launched their virtual tours, especially as they provide flexibility for potential members as well as those who may not be comfortable with having an in-person tour and want the freedom to view the leisure centres at their leisure.

“The tours also offer valuable information for service users wanting to understand access arrangements, where the changing rooms are, where specific rooms are for classes etc.

“Nottingham residents will benefit greatly from these tours and I hope they will inspire more people to get active.”

Sandie checks out Wellbeats Customer Choice

I spotted the “BOOK VIRTUAL” button on the app a while ago and wondered what a Wellbeats Customer Choice class was, so last week I booked to find out and to be honest, it’s exactly what it says on the tin!

You simply book a class, and when you get in the studio space, you choose from a massive range of different digital workouts, via the touch screen on the wall, and the fitness class plays out on the big screen in front of you. Simple!

There are so many classes including core strengthening, dance, meditation, yoga, you name it!

If there are a few people booked in the session you do need to decide between yourselves which class you’re going to play on screen, but there are lots of short routines, so you could do more than one in the session, which would please everyone!

I love the idea of getting together with some friends and having a bit of giggle too!



The videos are well-produced and offer both high and low-impact moves, so you don’t need to worry about it being too difficult.

You can bring your own equipment if you like, such as weights or a mat, but these are available at the centre.

Sessions are free as part of my Active Nottingham monthly membership, but can also be booked as a “pay as you go” customer.

To see what sessions are on and have a go yourself look for the blue “BOOK VIRTUAL” button on the app, book online or call the Customer Contact Centre on 0115 8761600.
