Activate Gym

“The Activate Gym has lots of wheelchair accessible equipment and helps me to tone my muscles and joints with exercise you can’t do at home. The warm welcome and friendly smile helps me to go the extra mile”

Ian Westgate MBE

Welcome to the Activate Gym, a wheelchair accessible gym based within the Therapy Department at The Chaseley Trust in Eastbourne, East Sussex.

Activate is the only gym in the Eastbourne area specifically for wheelchair users and provides a supported environment to allow both wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility an opportunity to exercise.

Under the guidance of our gym instructor and following a full induction programme, tailor-made packages are designed to suit your individual requirements so whether the user is exercising for the first time or wanting to continue to keep fit and healthy the gym instructor can advise and support you to get the most out of your gym experience. Our present equipment includes:

• Multi-gyms for a full upper body strengthening workout, supported standing machines for core and resistance work
• Cycle machines for assisted and active upper and lower limb workouts
• A treadmill for walking practice as well as stamina and endurance
• An adapted rowing machine for full body work
• Parallel bars and free weights

Our staff are very friendly and ready to assist, so why not arrange a visit to our gym and have a look for yourself I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
