The Newbury Community Centre, 1 Charles Place, Bury St. Edmunds. IP32 6TD
Access is via Westhorpe Avenue through to the rear of the housing estate. 
We have recently opened up a Second Class on a Monday Morning starting at 10.50 am. This is a Seated Class - If you find the first class a bit too much or you are less able, this is the class for you. Come along and try it out. We will trial it for say three months to see how we go. The first class as usual starts at 9.45am. The nurse is available for consultations.
Two classes. The first class starts at 9.45am – 10.40am and the second class starts 10.50am - 11.45am. Both classes have good numbers. All Welcome. The nurse available for consultation.

All people with cardiac history who have attended the West Suffolk Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Course will have been advised regarding the suitability of exercising with ‘Upbeat’, taking into account their medical condition.

We advise anyone who has not been the patient attending the West Suffolk Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Course, or where you were the patient and a period of six weeks has elapsed since completion, to seek further advice from your GP regarding your suitability for exercise before starting sessions with ‘Upbeat’. You will understand, of course that ’Upbeat’ must reserve the right to refuse participation in Exercise Sessions.

The ‘Upbeat’ exercise sessions are supervised with Qualified Instructors and a Cardiac Adviser, but please remember:-


Please wear comfortable clothes and suitable footwear and remember you are not obliged to ‘keep up’. Reduce your pace if you feel stressed, make smaller movements and/or leave out arm movements. Above all enjoy it – you will certainly be better for it.

Pop in to have a look at what we do and how we enjoy it!

Other exercise opportunities such as guided walks are also arranged. 

There is currently a charge of £5 per session towards class expenses – this includes a visit to the nurse if necessary and a cup of tea/coffee.
