We’re back, but with a few changes

We’re so happy to be back delivering this programme again. Like everyone, we’ve had to adapt for COVID-19. Things might be a little different and not all our classes will be starting immediately but our friendly team of instructors are here to welcome you back and help you stay active with us in a safe, but most of all enjoyable way. For now, we are delivering in-venue classes and live streamed classes

Our team are contacting participants to let them know about this support. You can also get in touch with us by emailing or calling 0131 458 2260.

About Get Active

Get Active activities are designed to provide low-level physical activity opportunities to encourage inactive people to become active and encourage people from Active Communities projects to stay active.

Our Classes

Active Aqua...

A fun and social water-based class that uses the resistance of water to work the whole body. This class is delivered in shallow water to help build water confidence while helping you to build on your strength and balance. This class is ideal if you are new to water-based activities or feel it has been some time since you last took part in exercise in water.

Active Sit...

This fun low-level class combining seated and standing exercises is perfect if you want to build strength and improve balance or co-ordination or if you are just looking for a friendly class as a way of being active.

Active Sit is great for anyone who has poor balance, walks slowly or uses mobility aids to get around.

Seated Yoga...

This low-level class uses a combination of seated and standing based movements that focus on stretches to increase flexibility, strength and balance to the whole body, with a focus on helping to relieve stress and help your body to relax.

Strength & Balance...

This low-level circuit session is fun and designed to work the whole body. This is the ideal class if you can move around independently and are looking to build on your strength and balance. This class uses a mixture of body weight and light weights and a great thing about this class is that each exercise can be adapted to meet your individual needs and allows you to work at your own pace in a friendly group environment.

Active Dance...

Active Dance is a fun and social way to be active. This low-level dance class is a great way to work the whole body helping you to maintain or improve coordination, balance and confidence without even realising.

Strength & Cardio...

This lightly energetic circuit class is designed to work the whole body, so it’s ideal for those who are looking to improve their physical fitness. Similar to Strength & Balance we use body weight and light weights during the class and each exercise can be adapted to meet your individual needs and allows you to work at your own pace in a friendly group environment.
