We understand that not everyone enjoys or gets the most out of the gym. That’s why we give you the option of a bespoke swimming membership. This lets you get your workout in the pool rather than in the fitness suit or as part of our group fitness classes. Swimming is great exercise, too. It lets you get a full-body workout without putting too much strain through your joints and you’ll burn calories and build muscle at the same time. What’s not to like?
With an Everyone Active swimming membership, you get unlimited access to more than 120 swimming pools across the country. Whether you want to pound the lanes to up your fitness, hone your technique, or just enjoy the water. The choice is yours and there are sessions to suit everybody.
Swimming is superb exercise, helping you burn calories, as well as build and tone muscles at the same time. While swimming, you work the whole body, including your arms, your shoulders, your core and your legs. This means you’ll never accidentally miss leg day like you might if you focused on the gym!
What to Wear
We’re pretty relaxed about what you wear while you’re swimming with us. As long as you’re comfortable and you can still move easily, you should be okay. For men, things like trunks, swim shorts, Lycra leggings and close-fitting trunks are all fine, while for women, there are bikinis, tankinis, swimming costumes, Lycra leggings and swim dresses as well as short- and long-sleeved t-shirts. We also recommend you wear goggles and a swim hat, while you’ll also need a towel, as well as a pound coin or a token for the lockers in the changing rooms. For full information on what you should and shouldn’t wear, check out our swimwear policy.
If you’re lacking anything, then just head over to the swimming section of the Everyone Member Shop. Here, you’ll find everything you could possibly need for a session at the pool, from swimwear to towels, from goggles to locker tokens. It really does have everything.
Everyone On Demand
To compliment your swimming membership, you’ll also get access to our fantastic range of home workout apps – Everyone On Demand. This suite of four apps allows you to sample over 2,500 online fitness classes from world-leading providers, including Les Mills. As well as Les Mills on Demand, you can also make use of WithU, FLEX and EXi, each of which offers something slightly different. So, if you can’t make it to the pool one day for some reason. You can still work out at home, or while you’re out and about!
