Have you thought about becoming a swim teacher?

Would you like to try something incredibly rewarding that gives back to your community, and get paid for it?

Could you spare a few hours a week to teach children lifesaving skills and confidence in the water?

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to be a strong, regular swimmer!

Our swim teacher team at MLC is comprised of passionate and dedicated professionals who strive to make a positive impact in the lives of the children they teach. As a casual relief swim teacher, you’ll have the chance to share your knowledge and expertise with young learners, whilst ensuring the learn to swim programme runs smoothly.

We will support you in obtaining the required teaching qualifications, and you’ll have the opportunity to learn new skills, and grow both personally and professionally. We can provide flexible working hours, making it a great option for those seeking work-life balance.

Try Curling at Moray Leisure Centre!

Have You Always Wanted To Try Curling?

Curling is a sport in which two teams of four players each slide 40 pound granite stones down a sheet of ice toward a target at the other end. Each team tries to get more of its stones closer to the centre of the target than the other team.

There is a great curling community here at Moray Leisure Centre with qualified coaches ready to show you the ropes!

We hold regular Try Curling sessions for people age 8+. All equipment is supplied including brushes and sliders. All you need is warm, loose fitting clothing and clean, flat, rubber soled shoes (trainers are ideal) to change into for curling. Delivery sticks allow stones to be delivered from a standing position or wheelchair and are available for those with mobility issues.

Avoid the Dark, Head to the Gym!

Now we’ve all enjoyed an extra hour in bed this morning (or not, if you’re a parent, sorry about that) how about using the clocks going back as a way to re-think your routine? Make the darker evenings work for you, rather than feeling tempted to go into hibernation-mode.

Think of this shift as a chance to create a routine of activities that will help you look after yourself through the winter months.

As we lose our daylight we often lose our motivation to stay active too. And while hibernation seems appealing, it can really impact your mental and physical health if you’re not doing enough fitness.

No matter what place you are in right now with your health, there is something for you here at MLC.

✨ Over 170 fitness classes every week to choose from. From low intensity classes perfect for beginners like Walkfit or Active Life with, to an intense performance indoor cycle class during the week day evenings, we have something for everyone! DM us if you’ve never been to a class before and we’ll help you out.

✨ We’ve worked hard to fit in as many hours of lane swimming in our winter timetable as we can, over 70 per week and open from 6am every week day.

✨ We’re part of the unbeatable Fit Life scheme, at just £23 per month for an individual membership and it’s quick and easy to sign up with us 👉 https://fitlife.leisurecloud.net/LeisureMembershipMorayLeisure/MemberRegistration.aspx?refresh=638027536721688703

✨ And one more thing….. Move It 2 Lose It 🎄XMAS EDITION🍭 is on it’s way!!!! FREE to Fit Life members 🤗
