We want LOVE YOURSELF to inspire everybody, no matter what age, shape or size, to move in a way that makes YOU feel good.

LOVE YOURSELF was born out of a desire to celebrate the mental health benefits of exercise. In today’s digital world, we are constantly affronted with perfection. Perfect, sculpted bodies, and the ‘right’ way to achieve them. The truth is, perfection doesn’t exist.

For us at Active Leeds, exercise isn’t about what you look like. It isn’t even about how strong you are, how fast you can run or how well you can dance. It’s about how exercise makes you feel. We want you to move your body and feel confident, feel empowered, and feel really great about yourself. Because you deserve too.

If you can find an activity (or even two!) that ticks those boxes for you, then you are well on your way to better health. Enjoying something and finding a way to fit it into your lifestyle – is the key to a long and happy relationship with exercise, and with your body.

Active Leeds want to help you find that thing that works for you.


Active Leeds has a vision for Leeds to be the best city to be active in. That means it is our mission to provide top notch health and fitness facilities and accessible opportunities for everyone in Leeds.

We have a team of passionate people who want to improve people’s experiences of exercise in Leeds, whether that be at our leisure centres, in our parks, in our communities and even in our own homes.
