"As well as trying to travel the world we are also putting on a series of Olympic events for people to get involved with.
"We have even had our very own torch made by Nunsthorpe Community School.
"We really are trying to make it as close to the real thing as possible."
As well as a treadmill and rowing machine at the centre, there is also a spinning bike at Raj Medical Centre, in Laceby Road, Grimsby.
The centre is also working with the seven Olympic values in the creation of some original artwork.
They are friendship, respect, excellence, determination, inspiration, courage and equality.
Many of the people using the centre are looking forward to the summer's sporting entertainment, including Aaron White.
The 15-year-old from Grimsby said: "I can't wait for the Olympics to start.
"I have rowed 660 metres so far for the travel the world challenge.
"I have also been following the Olympic torch since it came to this country.
"I think the games are important even if most people will not be able to go and see things live they should still do something."
There will be a variety of events happening at the Second Avenue Resource Centre, including hockey sessions, new age curling and chair-based exercise.
