- I’m a firefighter – do I receive a discount? Someone mentioned corporate membership to me.
You absolutely do! The fire service is a LAL corporate member meaning you and your colleagues receive a 10% discount on membership fees whilst receiving the same fantastic offers and benefits as everyone else. That’s unlimited access to all LAL venues with full use of gym, swimming and fitness classes with the option for health suite and power plate bolt-ons available.
Corporate members also receive visits from our wellbeing team to their workplace to carry out blood sugar and cholesterol testing as part of our basic health MOT service.

- How do I know what option is best for me – Pay & Play or Membership?
The Pay & Play Card is a great option and is available to everyone, saving you at least £1 on each and every visit. It is an ideal "try us out" stepping-stone to a full Live Active Fitness Membership and costs only £12.50 each year (it will be £13.00 from 1st May 2017!).
Membership costs for the average adult are £31.50 per month (concessions are available) and as well as the obvious benefit – if you’ve already paid for it, you will definitely use it! – you will also receive some fantastic added benefits such as Live Active Rewards, entry into our £100 club and discounts throughout our merchandise ranges and cafes. (Check out our full blog on membership benefits here>>>)
But let’s chat costs, because this is where it matters:
- Non-concession adult using LAL for two classes a week
- Total cost without membership: £46.00 per month
- FITNESS membership: £31.50 per month
- This would result in a saving of up to £14.50 per month
