At Millom Recreation Centre you will find everything you need to work out, improve your fitness and enjoy the time you spend in our centre. We believe exercise should be effective and fun and our teams will make sure it is.
There’s a reason movie stars and financial moguls use personal trainers: The benefits of working with a personal trainer is one of the fastest, easiest, most successful ways to improve your health and fitness. In fact, the benefits of personal training has proved so effective that it has spread well beyond the realm of the rich and famous. Today, personal trainers are affordable and used by people of all fitness, age and economic levels--and from all over the world--to help make lifestyle changes those people couldn’t achieve by themselves.
More intense than a stationary bike, indoor cycling keeps things cool with bumpin’ music and a killer class atmosphere. Expect to sit tight for 30 to 45 minute sessions, which can burn up to 900 calor. The intensity varies throughout the class, thanks to changing up body position, pedal speed, and resistance. And get ready to listen up: The instructor will yell out instructions to imitate a real ride of climbs, sprints, and coasts.
MRC-SPIN is definitely no ride in the park, though. It guarantees to amp up VO2 max (the rate oxygen is carried to the muscles), a sign the body is being pushed . All that pedaling will tone up muscles, too, working the quads, hamstrings, glutes, calves, and core. Studies have also found that indoor cycling can help shed unwanted pounds and potentially ward off migraines, while keeping impact on the joints to a minimum . Now that’s a #winning combo.

Vibration training was developed in Russia as early as the 1970's and proved highly effective in the success of the National Olympic teams during that decade.
Vibrostation works by generating vibrations that are transferred to the body. This process causes a 'myotatic' reflex or a 'stretch' reflex in the muscle being trained. The muscles involuntarily contract up to 30 times per second depending on your chosen setting.
An example of a stretch reflex is a reflex tested by the Doctor when they tap a reflex hammer under the knee. The upper leg muscles involuntarily contract 100% automatically.
Almost 100% of the muscles in the body are exercised using Vibrostation, unlike conventional training methods that only reach 40-55%.
A complete workout on the Vibrostation takes just 10 minutes to complete although it can be used for up to 30 minutes at a time.
The workout requires very little effort and will not cause you to sweat, which makes it the ideal training solution enabling you to go about your daily duties with the minimum of fuss.
Weekly classes are held at Millom Recreation Centre every Saturday, coached by fully Qualified British Gymnastic coaches with sessions jam-packed full of different things to keep your little ones busy from events and badge work to performing in annual displays.
Our ethos is all about having an enjoyable experience, and making gymnastics fun.
Everyone enters the gymnastics programme at a general level to ensure you master the basics before progressing and our coaches regularly asses gymnasts to ensure they are continually progressing through our well-structured programme. We teach gymnastics skills on the floor and on the vault, moving on to incorporate the bars, beam, and tumbling.
“Then, once you’ve found your feet on the floor and perfected your balance and co-ordination, students can progress to an advanced coaching programme which offers a higher level of training. These advanced classes are for gymnasts by invitation only and will focus on those who have the potential to excel further and perform in competitions.”
We have lots of children's activities to choose from, there is something for all ages, from our Reccy rascals playgroup for the little ones to our Staurday night Youth Zone for the local teens, or perhaps come along and try Gymnastics, Futsal, Moky, Roller Blading or toddler, infant & junior football sessions .
