Free outdoor fitness for the community


Sport Aberdeen has launched a new programme of outdoor fitness classes, completely free of charge, after official restrictions eased last week to allow for outdoor activities to resume.

In line with government guidelines, classes will launch on Monday 29 March at Get active @ Beach Leisure Centre and on Monday 5 April at Get active @ Alex Collie in Bridge of Don.

“The support we have received from our members over this challenging year has been fantastic and I know how keen they are to get back to live exercise classes. We will be operating with enhanced safety protocols in place to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and members and I know the whole Sport Aberdeen team is eager to welcome everyone back.”

The sessions, which will be held in the grounds outside the venues, will follow strict Covid-19 guidelines, will be socially distanced and accommodate a maximum of 14 participants. All classes are free to Sport Aberdeen Get active members and non-members, with an eight-day advance booking option for members.  

David Selkirk, Sport Aberdeen Director of Community Leisure Operations, said:

“This is a really exciting first step in allowing us to get back to providing opportunities for the whole community to take part in fitness classes in a safe and welcoming environment. Our members are very excited, and we saw all of the Get active @ Beach Leisure Centre week one classes booking up within the first hour of going live.
