Love your heart with a new Healthy Heart class at Andover Leisure Centre

A new ‘healthy hearts’ exercise programme has been launched by Andover Leisure Centre to help people suffering from high blood pressure and diabetes.  The classes, which are part of the new Valley Leisure Every Body Active scheme - that aims to get everybody exercising, no matter what their physical challenges - are also useful for people who are overweight and obese.

Fitness Expo highlights local talent

Valley Leisure has evidence of tremendous talent being identified and nurtured at the Andover Leisure Centre. A key initiative for unlocking local talent in this area has been the introduction of an annual Fitness Expo that was introduced in 2013. The Expo is open to members of different age groups and this year saw 30 competitors aged from early 20’s through to their 50’s competing in the various disciplines. The event consists of a Fitness Challenge, Body Building and Power Lifting.
