Health and fitness corporate membership scheme


This page gives details of our health and fitness corporate membership scheme.

Our leisure centres will reopen on 2 December. Only the gyms and swimming pools will be open at first, but we will be launching a virtual fitness class program beginning Monday 30 November. Classes will be streamed live on our facebook page @DurhamThriveActive. We will be monitoring government guidance closely and will restart fitness classes in our leisure centres as soon as we are able to.

See our Leisure centres re-opening information page for more information.
