Lifestyle card and concessions

Here at Inspiring healthy lifestyles leisure centres we're all about your health and fitness.

You'll need a Lifestyle card to use our leisure centres.

There are two types of Lifestyle card:

  1. The standard Lifestyle card simply allows you to use our leisure centres and their activities. This card is free and available to everyone.
  2. People who live within the borough of Cannock Chase and are eligible for concessions can take advantage of special discounts with the Lifestyle Concession card. If you are eligible for the Lifestyle Concession card, you pay an annual fee to enjoy the generous discounts it offers.

We also offer a special membership to active service personnel resident in the district of Cannock Chase.
