Active Options 2

Active Options 2 is a programme of health classes which are based on the amount of physical activity you are able to do rather than any long term condition you have. 

The classes are suitable for people with different physical abilities and are led by highly trained experienced instructors who are able to tailor exercises to suit any participant.

Anyone wishing to access the scheme will need to be referred by a Health Professional.

QuitFit 

In partnership with NHS Fife’s Central Stop Smoking Service's Team, we are offering a 4 week fitness pass to participants who sign up to the Quitfit programme. 

The service is available to communities throughout Fife and offers smoking cessation advice and peer support in a community-based setting, encouraging physical activity to boost long-term positive healthy behaviour change at the time of the quit attempt. 

Sessions are held weekly on Tuesday evenings at Cowdenbeath Leisure Centre (passes can be used in any FSLT venue). Please attend at 5.30pm for your first visit then from 6.00pm - 7.00pm thereafter.
