Going Local - Get fit and healthy in and around Matlock
For anyone still keeping up with their New Year's resolution to get fit or perhaps lose those few extra pounds put on over Christmas there are plenty of places to go in and around Matlock where you can get fit, start a new hobby and perhaps make new friends at the same time.
The first place to start is the award winning Arc Leisure Matlock with its range of state of the art facilities including swimming pools, cutting-edge fitness suite, badminton courts and multi disciplinary indoor spaces for fitness classes, indoor hockey, basketball, volleyball, five-a-side football, netball, gymnastics and dance classes as well as refurbished outdoor football pitches. The centre runs classes for all types of activities for all ages and abilities and has a safe and friendly crèche for young children to play while you get fit.
If you'd like to sign up to a fitness class there are a range of activities to choose from including aerobics, zumba, pilates, flamenco, salsa and the increasingly popular bokwa, a combination of boxing moves and the African cultural dance Kwaito, where you can burn up to 1200 calories per session. The gym has an extensive range of the latest Technogym cardiovascular and resistance equipment, including Kinesis One and Cardio Wave designed to give you a complete, full-body work out.
If Arc Leisure Matlock isn't convenient for you then you could try swimming at the pool in Bakewell town centre but at certain times there are sessions in the pool and gym that will not be suitable for you, so check the pool timetable and gym timetable before visiting to make sure of availability. As well as the pool they have a Fitness Suite with 12 pieces of cardio vascular and resistance equipment. The pool run swimming classes for adults and children as well as a wide range of school holiday courses, activities and birthday parties.
