Fitness for mental health service users
We provide a programme of activity for both mental health service users and homeless community users in Cambridge.
There are a variety of activities on offer including:
- t'ai chi
- multi-sports activities
- tennis and badminton sessions
Some sessions are free; others have a small charge. Most sessions are run by a member of staff who will help you settle into the session and provide any advice and support you may need.
During all of the sessions you'll be encouraged to be physically active and have fun in a social setting. You can just turn up and have a go, but we ask that you join the programme as a member after your first session. Membership is free, and you'll be updated about any changes to the programme as and when they occur.
Mental health service users can also apply for a free BETTER card, when applying for Invigorate membership. A BETTER card providers you with a 50% discount on facilities across all of the GLL managed facilities in the city:
- Abbey Sports Centre
- Parkside Pools
- Kings Hedges Learner Pool
- Jesus Green Lido
- Cherry Hinton village centre
A membership form for the Invigorate programme is available at the back of the leaflet:

Run For Your Life - friendly group sessions around the city

You can’t get left behind, and there is no pressure to run any particular speed or distance. Starting with run/walk is normal and having a nice chat is always on the cards
