What are the benefits?

With a SWFLC Wellness Off Peak membership, you'll receive: 

  • Use of the gym, pool and group exercise classes during off peak hours.
  • Up to three hours of car parking free (subject to availability).
  • You can book classes and activities included in your membership at SWFLC up to 10 days in advance.

Due to Covid-19, there are currently some temporary changes to the usual SWFLC Only Wellness Off-peak membership privileges:

You can book two sessions per day: 

  • You can book two activities at the same centre, for example you can book one exercise class and then a gym or a swim session. You won’t be able to book and attend two of the same activity type, for example two exercise classes at the same centre on the same day.
  • However, you can book the same activity type at different sites; for example, you can book one exercise class at Riverside and then one exercise class at CSAC on the same day. This is to help make it easy for everyone to attend the activities they love. 
  • Some of our sessions and facilities will not be available to use when we first reopen; this includes equipment hire.  You can find out which facilities are available on our timetable of reopening page.
  • These measures are in line with government and industry guidelines and are to ensure we operate safely for all our staff and customers.
  • These changes are not permanent. We are reviewing these measures weekly and will implement changes as soon as we receive updated guidance.
