We know it's tricky staying active while our centres are closed so we're working hard with all our great partners to bring you fantastic activities and offers to help you keep moving at home.
Here's a summary of what's currently available - it's changing all the time, so keep an eye on this page, our emails and our social media pages for any updates.
Places Locker Workout of the Week

There's also a 'Keep Moving' workout designed specifically for older adults.
Places Locker also has an inbuilt GPS function so if you are able to get out and about, you can record and track your walking, running and cycling activities too.
You can access the Les Mills collection, as well as our own Workouts of the Week, directly from our FREE Places Locker app – simply download it from the App store or Google Play if you don’t have it already. If you’re a member, don’t forget to use the same email address to link it to your account and capture your Moves.
