Over 60 and ready to kick start a healthier lifestyle?
Swimming is a great way to socialise, increase mobility and stay active whatever your age or level of ability. At Leyton Leisure Centre we offer a varied programme to meet the needs of all our customers including fitness swim for lane swimming, swim for all for a more open general swim for all ages and abilities and even Aqua Aerobics for a low resistance and fun water based class.
Staff are more than happy to advise when the quieter times are if you would prefer. We also have hoist and step access available on request, plus the pool at Leyton Leisure Centre is a shallow pool (1.3m at the deepest point) if you are not very confident.
