Get Active with our Inclusive UK Membership

We believe everyone should be able to enjoy staying active, no matter what your access needs are.

That’s why our Inclusive UK membership gives people who are registered as disabled access to our gyms, swimming pools, fitness classes and more for a reduced price . This gym and leisure membership for those with disabilities also provides access for you and your carer/personal assistant*, so you always have the support that you need.

Bring it to Better and enjoy to a range of disability-friendly and accessible gyms, equipment and activities at over 200 centres across the UK. You’ll also find our welcoming, fully-trained staff across our leisure centres and pools, ready to discuss your personal requirements and help you achieve your fitness goals. Plus, since Better is a not-for-profit organisation, your membership fees will be reinvested back into helping other people with disabilities enjoy access to exercise.

*personal use of facilities by your carer/personal assistant is chargeable, please check your local centre for prices and membership options)

"Attending a Better gym has helped me in a multitude of ways. Physically, it obviously helps me in my day-to-day life, it helps me understand my body. Mentally it's helped me in terms of giving me a center for myself. And socially, it helps because I'm a more confident, outgoing person."- Kyle, a Better member

“Exercise is really important because if you've got MS, you have a problem with your nervous system […] and to be doing any form of exercise, keeping yourself flexible is keeping you supple - it's keeping you moving.” – Sarah, A Better Member
