Staying active at home

We recognise our members are looking for new ways to stay active during this difficult time. To help, we have launched Kingston Active at Home, a series of online workouts guided by our much-loved trainers.

We hope that being able to see a familiar face and stay physically active in your home will support you through this time. You can also join our weekly Facebook Live training sessions to participate in real-time.

Check out Kingston Active at Home for more details.

If you're looking for some water safety based activities to do with the kids at home, you can also visit our website for our SwimWork homework series. Here we are providing fun and interactive activities for students to do at home and continue with their water safety education and knowledge.
