About us

WAPACTIV2 offers a night of fun activities for people who want to become more active but find mainstream gyms unsettling, overstimulating or just off-putting. We offer a combination of gym, aqua aerobics, circuit training, team games, marital arts or yoga. WAPACTIV2 is based at the Lenton Centre, in the heart of Lenton.

The Lenton Centre is a vibrant social enterprise that has a broad range of activites and organisations operating within its friendly environment.
