 3. Dance

Missing the winter TV schedule of Strictly Come Dancing? Why not learn some Ballroom and Latin dancing in your area? Beginners classes in Woking on Friday nights with Surrey Swing Dance starting end of January . Check out the website:

 4. Swimming 

Around 1 in 5 adults are unable to swim and in many areas there are adult swimming classes. Check out your local leisure centre for classes that range from complete novices to experienced swimmers. The ASA Framework also has a structured programme that swimming clubs can use for motivating adult swimmers and provides information on clubs such as diving or water polo.

 5. Football

Find out where to play near you at Surrey FA. Not only does this provide details of clubs in your area but it also has information on women’s and girls football also. See for more information

6. Climbing

Surrey Sports Park and Craggy Island both have extensive climbing facilities see and for specific details but some local leisure centres, such as Woking also have climbing tuition and are worthwhile looking at as a place to start a new activity.


So those are some ideas to learn, adapt or enhance an exercise routine that might interest you. Now all you need to do is try one out.


Have fun!
