Women in exercise class doing crunches

At Chelmsford Sport and Athletics Centre we have a wide range of group exercise classes on offer every week, each with their own benefits.

We have modern ground floor studios, accessible changing facilities and expert instructors.

Our new ground floor studio replaces our old free weights area and has recently been refurbished to include an updated colour scheme, a brand new flooring and lighting system and speakers. Both our studios are now at ground floor level and making them more easily accessible.

We're also running more of the classes you love, including a mix of group cycle, cardio, strength, HIIT, core and mind and body classes.  

Classes marked with a * are for over 16s only. Others are suitable for those 14 years old and over.
