About the Aspire Leisure Centre The Aspire Leisure Centre is based in North West London within the grounds of the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in Stanmore. The centre was the first fully accessible leisure centre in Europe for both disabled and non-disabled people. We offer a wide range of classes to cater to all levels of fitness and ability, and proactively encourage disabled people to join in and take part in all activities at the centre. Our disabled members benefit from subsidised membership and activity costs, and are also able to make use of our fully accessible gym and facilities. These facilities include a heated wheelchair accessible swimming pool, as well as an Inclusive Fitness Initiative approved fitness studio and accessible gym equipment. We’re proud to say that over 30% of Aspire Leisure Centre members are disabled, compared to an average of just 2-3% at other sports centres nationally. We’re passionate about inclusive fitness, and the good practice at Aspire Leisure Centre inspired our InstructAbility programme - a national project to train disabled people as fitness instructors. Aspire Leisure Centre has gained Quest (UK Quality Scheme for Sport and Leisure) registration as 'Excellent' and has been fully approved by the Inclusive Fitness Initiative. With our deserved reputation for inclusive fitness, Aspire's expertise has also been used by the NHS in their recent video. The video also showcases some of the accessible gym equipment available for use at the centre.
