Active Women Sessions

Active Women Sessions

Come along to our Active Women session at Lochee Swimming & Leisure Centre on Tuesday's 1.00pm – 3.00pm during school term. It's a great way to socialise and meet new people in a comfortable and welcoming setting.

Our facilities are open at this time for Women only and female staff operate in designated areas such as: the swimming pool, gym and the changing area. If ladies require a female only session for modesty reasons this is definitely suitable. Male staff work within the building at this time, however, will not be in designated areas.

Our recently modernised community facility offers the opportunity to improve your confidence and mental wellbeing through exercise. Older people can help prevent social isolation by having fun taking part in different activities that can make themselves feel good while improving their physical health.

Regular swimming can reduce the risk of chronic illnesses, such as Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and Stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control. Swimming is a lifelong skill that could save a life. If you can't swim, it's never too late to learn. Come along and be an Active Women.

We would like you to be involved in what we offer during our Active Women session. Let us know if there is anything you would like to see happen at your centre.
