Just thought i'd update you about something I learned today. I know there are quite a number of these Everyone Active sports centers around the country.
Looking at the monthly subscriptions they have I went into the Plymouth one to ask and was told that because I have a disability you get a monthly subscription that allows you access to all the facilities, Swimming Pool, Gym, Sauna, and all classes for £23.40. All you need is to provide some proof of your disability i.e. DLA letter. I'll get some more information when I sign up if you can do it on a consultants letter or something. If you want to pay for the year in advance is works out even cheaper at £234 because you get 2 months free, so essentially only pay for 10 months. Also really suitable for us is that you can freeze your subscription if for example you are away for a month, or are in a really bad period/sick etc. Thats £5 a month which isn't too bad. You can also use it at any of their centers.
On their website they do not advertise this discount. I do not know why, but the nearest one to it is £25 a month concessionary fee, that provides access only to the swimming pool/sauna. Its a discount you have to ask for when you subscribe, and for that you have to do in person rather than online. I think its kind of odd that they don't advertise it because some people might be put off by the fact that there is no provision for disabled people or such.
I know quite a few of us do things like Pilates which is included in the subscription as well as access to everything else. I swim 3x a week and would save £10 a month on that alone! With Gym access and free classes I thought it was a pretty decent discount!
Just thought i'd let everyone know incase they've been considering something like this but found it too expensive and such!
