Physical activity adults (16+ years)

Exercise is great for both your physical and mental health. It is recommended that adults do at least two hours and 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week and carry out muscle strengthening activity on at least two days a week.

Whilst this may sound like a lot, the good news is some activity is better than none, so starting somewhere is better than not at all.

Need some help to get started?

Let our team of welcoming and experienced Health and Wellbeing Activators support you on your journey to leading a more active lifestyle at one of our timetabled sessions below.

The team lead a range of sessions including seated exercise classes, active circuits, walking sports programme, archery, rebound therapy and specialist disability sessions.

Fancy trying something new? Come along to one of the sessions below and give it a go.
