Total Fitness swimming pools

Swimming is one of the best all round exercises for your body and that’s why each Total Fitness centre has a pool for everyone. There’s our spacious, 25m indoor pool for experienced and mid-level swimmers, along with a dedicated family pool where kids can learn to swim with confidence. You can also relax in our unique hydrotherapy pool.

Access to the pools and the other aquatic facilities are included as standard in the price of your membership. The pools opening times are the same as the Clubs.

Structured swimming lessons are offered through our partners, Water Babies and Becky Adlington SwimStars, with these taking place predominately in our family pool although on occasion these may take place in the main pool too.

Swimming lessons for babies aged 0-3 are provided through Water Babies.

Swimming lessons for children aged 3-11 are provided through Becky Adlington's Swim Stars.

Becky Adlington’s Swim Stars delivers group swimming lessons for children aged 3 to 11 years. Lessons are designed to be fun and inspiring to encourage a lifelong love of swimming. There are never more than 6 children per class, ensuring plenty of attention for each child from their teacher. Our programme is in line with the ASA’s Learn to Swim Framework with additional Swim Star Rewards to encourage and motivate the children. 1 to 1 lessons for children and adults are also available. All lessons are booked directly with Becky Adlington’s Swim Stars.

The main pool is free to use by all competent swimmers and usually has separate lanes for different speed of swimming to accommodate different swimming preferences.
