Better living service
Better living service Adults is a free twelve-week exercise and healthy weight programme. Group based sessions run in Leisure Centres and Community Halls across Calderdale from Monday to Saturday and on some evenings.
Better living service aims to introduce people to safe and structured exercise whilst encouraging and supporting them to achieve their goals. Whether it be increased physical fitness, weight loss or physical rehabilitation - our specialist advanced instructors are there each step of the way.
Our members benefit from unlimited use of Calderdale Council's Active Lifestyles card for use in the gyms, swimming pools and exercise classes - free of charge for twelve weeks. After this all these activities can be enjoyed at a reduced rate.
