At the recently redeveloped Port Lincoln Leisure Centre, fitness is more than just a visit to the gym or the pool.
It’s about achieving your health and fitness goals with the full support of friendly and qualified staff.
The leisure centre’s programs are designed to meet the different needs of each client, from young people through to older adults and people with a disability.
An inclusive approach to health and fitness is offered, where visitors of all ages and fitness levels can enjoy the benefits of physical activity undertaken in a friendly, community environment.

Port Lincoln Leisure Centre manager Corey Slade said all this was offered in a “beautiful, newly-designed centre”.
“The changes can be noticed as soon as you walk into the centre, with the walk through going into a new kiosk area,” Mr Slade said.
“The major change to the eye is the beautiful concourse of the pool – it’s a much bigger and open area.”
This area is also serviced by a much better air handling system, creating a more accommodation atmosphere for those with breathing difficulties or health problems, such as asthma.
Another impressive part of the facility is the upstairs gym.
“That’s about a $200,000 investment just there,” Mr Slade said. “It has a beautiful outlook over the marina.”
There’s also a stadium that can host basketball, netball and volleyball games, among other things, and a dedicated party room.
“Birthday parties have been very popular so far,” Mr Slade said. “We’ve had about 30 parties that have been booked in or have been held; that’s a huge improvement.”
As a result of the many program offerings and state-of-the-art facilities, membership numbers at the centre have risen since the doors opened earlier this month.
“We are exceeding our goals just two weeks after opening; we are up around the 700-odd membership mark now,” Mr Slade said.
“Prices are competitive with an average gym members, but we are obviously offering the whole centre.
“Memberships are very, very good value for families and are more inclusive.”
Research shows people thrive when they challenge themselves, engage in stimulating and enjoyable activities, and connect with others.
Based on this, Mr Slade urged people to get involved in one of the centre’s many programs, including: swimming lessons, aquatic fitness, active adult 60-plus fitness classes, or group, disability and youth fitness classes.
