Canterbury Lifestyle Fitness Centre is located within the Canterbury Academy Campus and looks out over a stunning view of the 11th Century Canterbury Cathedral.

The centre offers a wide range of facilities for both fitness and leisure users and for sports clubs. The leisure centre complex also boasts a large 6 court sports hall, a floodlit 6 lane athletics track with throws areas, a floodlit football pitch, a 4 competition court sized sand area and 2 floodlit tennis courts. The latter we operate on behalf of Canterbury City Council. In May 2013 we also re opened our Multi Use Games Area, now bigger and better, with a sand based synthetic grass.

Whatever the reason for your visit, let our friendly and professional staff help and guide you. Our highly qualified gym team can support and assist you to help achieve your goals, whether you desire additional support as you make subtle lifestyle changes and slim down in a weight loss programme or need motivation to keep the fight within you as you train for a sporting dream, our team can be there through every step. We can provide you with individually tailored personal programmes, designed especially for you during a 1 to 1 lifestyle appointment, and we help maintain and develop this programme as you achieve each step on the way to overall goal.

To make an appointment for a tour to see our facilities and to run through the best membership options, please contact the centre on 01227 766352. We hope to see you at the centre soon.
