New Sport Aberdeen memberships to help city get more active


Award-winning charity Sport Aberdeen has launched exciting new membership products to help the city get more active.   

There is strong evidence to justify the benefits of being physically active at any age, contributing towards healthier and happier lifestyles.    

Research carried out by Ofcom in 2022 stated that 66% of 3-17 year olds have their own mobile phone, 76% have their own social media profile and 96% use video sharing platforms.     

Sport Aberdeen hopes to inspire children and young people to put their devices down and spend more quality time enjoying sport and physical activity this summer and beyond.

Its new Get active Junior membership offers several activities across the city for only £22.50 per month.

Activities included are swimming, ice skating, tubing, specialised fitness classes, indoor and outdoor tennis, padel tennis, footgolf, open ski and snowboarding sessions and access to five golf courses.

A summer junior fitness class timetable has also been created for Get active Junior members and Teen Fitness members to attend for free, running for the next six weeks.

The classes will provide a great way to have fun, improve fitness and learn new techniques in a gym environment, and include the following:

  • GetMoving focuses on improving mobility and maintaining flexibility in a variety of low impact ways.
  • GetFit is a high intensity circuits-style class building strength and stamina.
  • GetStrong offers an introduction to safe lifting techniques using free weights.

Classes will run at Get active @ Northfield for week one, Get active @ Sheddocksley for week two, Get active @ Jesmond for week three, Get active @ Kincorth for week four and Get active @ Alex Collie for week five.

A new membership has been launched for adults – Get active – which includes swimming, over 100 fitness classes every week, access to all gyms, ice skating, golf at five courses, tennis, badminton, padel tennis and open ski and snowboarding sessions.

The price of the Get active membership is £46 per month – the only membership in Aberdeen to offer so many activities for one low monthly cost. Further details on each membership product can be found here.
