The City of Wolverhampton Council’s leisure service, WV Active, is keeping the city moving with free online workouts for residents to enjoy whilst gyms are closed under the nationwide Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

The online programme offers a range of classes from low impact options such as pilates and yoga to Les Mills favourites like BodyAttack.

WV Active facilities including gyms, pools, exercise studios and sports halls closed last week due to the lockdown and won’t reopen until Thursday 3 December when the current restrictions are expected to be eased. 

Cabinet Member for City Environment, Councillor Steve Evans, said: “After the success of our online fitness class programme earlier in the year, we’ve decided to repeat it while our WV Active centres are closed.

“Since reopening in July, we’ve received a lot of support and positive feedback from members, particularly around health and safety and the Covid secure measures implemented in the centres.

“We hope our members are able to enjoy our free online classes until we are able to safely reopen our centres again.”

The WV Active website has a dedicated page for home workouts for children and adults of all abilities to take part in from home. Live streamed Les Mills classes will also be available to existing members only.
