The leisure centre at Fareham in Hampshire has long held a reputation for outstanding client service and state-of-the-art facilities that are second to none. These attributes have made it a winner of UK Active’s FLAME Leisure Centre of the Year award, as well as the only UK leisure centre to be awarded the QUEST “outstanding” accreditation twice in succession.

Among the range of facilities and services available at Fareham are free parking, a gym with 120 pieces of the latest fitness equipment, two swimming pools with an award winning swim school, an in-house qualified sports therapist, two sports halls that play host to a range of team sports and circuit training sessions, two squash courts, a dance school, a relaxing café and a creche where guests can leave small children in the capable hands of our staff while they enjoy their visit.

With a dedicated classroom providing full access to learning support materials, Fareham is an ideal location for us to run our training courses. We’re confident that our students who train at this facility will have an enjoyable and rewarding learning experience that will leave them eager to get out in the industry and practice what they’ve learned.
