Keep you up to date with all our news. we'll let you know whats we've been up to as well as what weve been planning.

We know that January is the month when health and fitness are at the top of the agenda and internet searches for fitness regimes peak. But we also know that in the aftermath of the holiday (and a little slacking on the exercise front) it can be tough to be motivated and take time to see a result - which may be why too many people who resolve to get fit this month struggle to stick to the resolution and give up before the month is out.

Head our way for a little more fun via our Disney-inspired swim sessions, the perfect treat to carry Christmas (and Frozen) cheer into the New Year.

Do you really know our members? This year we will be taking you through the inspirational stories of some of our amazing members. Including stories of weight loss, radical life changes or just simply getting active again...

Incredible weight loss story - Teresa - she lost 11st over an 8 year period, using Halo gym and classes to help her along the way...

Getting Active together! - Ellie and Leanne - mother and daughter using Halo to keep each other active and healthy...

Swimming success - John's Story - A late learner showing us all that it's never too late to be a swimmer!

GET INSTRUCTING | Level 2 Certificate in Gym Instructing and circuits course coming soon to Bridgend ---> 

If you’re one of the thousands of people who come into Hereford Leisure Centre each month, we've just made your life easier!

Our new face recognition technology means you’ll no longer need to swipe your Halo membership card and you’ll no longer have to worry that people are sneaking in and benefiting from your membership fee for free. 

 

We’re inviting aspiring athletes from across Herefordshire and Bridgend County to apply for a new round of funding from the Halo Sport Foundation. Knowing some 80% of athletes have limited resources to support the cost of the training and competition they need to progress, Halo Sport Foundation offers financial awards and free training opportunities to successful applicants. Since the scheme launched over 120 athletes representing over 30 sports have benefited from over £60,000 worth of Foundation backing.

During the summer months we all know a short exposure of 10-15 minutes of sunshine on our skin is plenty (and the easiest and best source of vitamin D), but in winter, sunshine can be harder to come by, especially if you are snuggled up indoors.

So the choice is between queuing in the crowds for the that last present you forgot to get...or taking a long, delicious swim in the pool, and a steam or spa before a coffee to wind down afterwards?

Disney has been giving Halo swimmers tons of confidence this year via a little Mickey Mouse magic at our pools in Maesteg, Ynysawdre and Hereford. Why not make our 45-minute Disney pool sessions (for all the family) a pre-Christmas treat and enjoy our instructor-led fun and games using Disney stories to inspire core aquatic skills.

When inclusion works, and people are welcomed into work or workouts, friendship groups or community spaces - no matter what their ability or disability - it not only works for the person who faces a challenge, it changes and enriches the lives of everyone around them.
