If you are currently not active, not sure where to start and would like a bit of extra support then Live Active is for you!
Please take a look at the following clip which shows you what Live Active is all about.
Through the support of our highly trained and qualified Live Active Advisors, we’ll help you build the confidence you need to make positive lifestyle changes. We’ll work with you to develop a support package which is right for you, provide you with one-to-one catch-ups, supported activity sessions and encourage you to set goals, which will leave you feeling great and ensure you’re getting the most out of life.
Over the course of a 12 month period you will be assigned a dedicated Live Active Advisor who is there every step of the way to help and support you to become more active. A referral form from your health professional is needed for you to attend Live Active – this just gives the Advisors information that they need to be aware of before they have a chat with you such as medical history.
The referral form should be sent to the Leisure Centre you wish to attend. Live Active operates at all main Leisure Centres across Greater Glasgow and Clyde. The link below details all participating sites:

Once the Live Active Advisor receives your referral form they shall give you a call to book you in for your first appointment. But if your health professional has already referred you and you haven’t heard anything within 2 weeks then please call 0141 232 1860 and select Live Active to book in for your first appointment.
Your first appointment will last about an hour and don’t worry you wont be doing any exercise at this first session. This appointment is just to meet your Live Active Advisor and have a chat about what you would like to do and to set a plan to work towards. The Advisor will also show you round the centre so you know where everything is (if you need to) and make sure you have everything you need to get started.
Whether it’s increasing physical activity, healthy eating and weight loss or simply living a more positive lifestyle, our Live Active advisors are with you every step of the way. At Live Active you’ll be given access to various activities if you want including; Vitality classes, supervised gym sessions, swimming, health walks and many more.
Your advisor will also be in touch regularly throughout the 12months (either by telephone or face-to-face catch ups) to see how you are getting on. The advisors also provide supervised activity sessions in the gym during the week so that you know they are there on hand if you need them with your gym programme.
The one to one support from the Live Active Advisor is free for the 12months and all you have to do is pay for the activities you choose to take part in. Costs vary and your advisor can give you more details about these.
If you would like to take part in Live Active please speak to your health professional who will complete a referral form and make arrangements to book you in for you free consultation.
Or if you have already been referred but still waiting to hear from the Live Active team please call 0141 232 1860 and select the Live Active option to speak to an Advisor who will be able to book you in for your first appointment.
