Sports & Fitness

At The Factory we offer members the opportunity to get involved in a huge range of sports. Working on the concept of “try, train, team”, young people of all abilities are able to access different sports.

Each Sunday we also offer free sport and fitness classes for young people with additional needs.

Senior members have access to our fully equipped fitness suite. Ran by qualified Fitness Instructors, the gym offers young people the chance to get fitter, stronger and healthier in a safe and friendly environment. Members can also get help from our Fitness Instructors to develop a plan that works for them. The gym is open every Senior session.

Junior members can use the cardio machines in small, closed gym sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Every Sunday, 12.30pm – 4pm

Free activities for young people with additional needs!

12.30 – 4pm: Sporty fun!

Open to members and non-members, ‘Factory Sundays’  offers great activities for £0.00!

The sessions are great for welcoming new members to the centre as they will be in a smaller group where they can build relationships with staff and other young people as well as getting used to the centre itself. Once comfortable, young people can more easily transition to Junior or Senior sessions, should they wish.

New members with additional needs are asked to meet with our Inclusion team before their first visit. This is to ensure The Factory knows how best to support the young person. Contact our Inclusion Coordinator, Joe, for more information by emailing or calling 0161 203 5333.
