New Inclusive Class Pass at National Sports Centre

Tuesday, 3 October 2023

A new pass has been launched to encourage adults with physical or learning difficulties to use the gym at the National Sports Centre (NSC) in Douglas at a reduced rate.

The Inclusive Class Pass and Disability Gym Membership at the NSC will give access to a range of inclusive weekly classes, as part of their ongoing commitment to ensuring that everyone enjoy the benefits of a healthy and active lifestyle, regardless of their abilities.

During the seven month initiative participants can join weekly sessions for just £8 per month, and have the option to pay monthly, quarterly, or on a more flexibility basis.

Carers, friends, and family members can participate free of charge when accompanying in a caring capacity.

Activities included in the membership are:

  • Glow Sports - sensory and sport activities to music in a blacked-out room with UV lighting

  • Paracise – a low-impact exercise class to music

  • Spin – low-impact cardio, placing less stress on joints

  • Wobble – a seated exercise to music-class, to improve strength, mobility and confidence

  • Plus much more

An open day will be held on Monday 9 October to allow people to experience a selection of taster sessions free of charge, from 9:30am to 3:30pm.

Julie Edge MHK, Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, said:

‘We are committed to empowering people to make the most of our National Sports Centre’s first-class facilities and skilled coaches.

‘We believe everyone should have equal opportunities and these classes and passes are a positive move towards this. Being disabled should not provide a barrier to using this facilities and our passionate and enthusiastic coaches will help anyone wishing to try something new.’
