St. Georges Leisure Centre is fantastically well located for those working or living in the City or Canary Wharf area. The centre, operated by Better, has been an integral part of the borough and has recently undergone a refurbishment to provide even better facilities.
Workout in this modern, fully air-conditioned gym equipped with state of the art Technogym cardiovascular and resistance equipment. There’s a compact free weights area and stretching area with medicine balls. Women only gym sessions are available, check with reception for dates and times.
The centre is home to one of the best swimming pools in London, which has been used by the Russian Federations Synchronised Swimming team. The 6 lane, 33 metre pool is great for those swimming for fitness or leisure. A smaller 12 metre pool is also available for those who want to take it a bit easier in the pool or are maybe just getting started. Brand new diving boards have been fitted and the centre runs courses for adult and children beginners as part of the Tom Daley Diving Academy. You can speak with a member of staff for more information and additional costs for these facilities.
Aqua classes can be booked if you’re looking for a group workout in the water or why not try out a Pilates or Circuits class for something energetic. Classes may need to be booked in advance and do have an additional cost, speak with a member of staff for more information.
