Keeping Active

Being physically active is great for both your physical and mental health. It’s recommended that adults do at least two hours and 30 minutes of moderate intensity activity a week and children and young people up to the age of 18 should be active for an average of 60 minutes per day, every day.

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. Find information below on how you can keep active across North Lincolnshire.

Jogging or running is a free and easily accessible form of physical activity. Jogging or running regularly is a great way of improving your overall physical health. It can improve heart and lung health, increase joint strength and stability, reduce your risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Running is also thought to improve mental wellbeing and can reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression and stress, and simply improve your mood.

Running groups in North Lincolnshire

Scunthorpe & District Running Club hold regular running sessions every Tuesday and Thursday evening behind Brumby Hall. The group caters for all levels of ability. Speed doesn’t matter, the only criteria is that you want to run. All sessions are led by UKA accredited and CRB checked Coaches and Run Leaders.

You can find more information on the Scunthorpe & District Running club website or email them for more information secsadrc@gmail.com

Couch to 5K

Couch to 5K is a running plan for absolute beginners. It was developed by a new runner, Josh Clark, who wanted to help his 50-something mum get off the couch and start running.

The plan involves 3 runs a week, with a day of rest in between, and a different schedule for each of the 9 weeks.

Visit the NHS Couch to 5k page

Sometimes overlooked as a form of exercise, walking briskly can help you build stamina, burn excess calories and make your heart healthier.

You don’t have to walk for hours. A brisk 10-minute daily walk has lots of health benefits and counts towards your recommended 150 minutes of exercise a week.

  1. Keep learning
  2. Connect

NL Active has a range of tailored programmes to meet the needs of specific groups of people, and we have a team of Health and Wellbeing Activators that work in facilities and across the community to help provide this offer.

Older adults

As we get older, it becomes even more important to remain active if we want to stay healthy and maintain our independence. To stay pain-free, reduce the risk of mental illness, and be able to go out and stay independent well into old age, we need to keep moving.

Active Ageing and Active Lincs are programmes aimed at increasing the activity levels of older people or those who have limited mobility or underlying health conditions. Activities include seated exercises, walking sports and active circuits. Classes are delivered in NL Active facilities, hub settings and local community venues. To find out more about the offer: in facilities email referral@northlincs.gov.uk or in the community email community.recreation@northlincs.gov.uk

North Lincolnshire Council’s Active Exercise Referral programme supports people with existing medical conditions to become more active and improve their health.

The Active Exercise Referral Programme will help improve, manage, or prevent health conditions such as diabetes, impaired mobility, COPD, asthma,
depression, hypertension, obesity, stroke recovery, and controlled coronary heart disease.

NL Active has a team of exercise referral qualified Health & Wellbeing Activators who will work with you to design a personal fitness plan to suit your medical conditions and abilities. They will provide support, advice and encouragement throughout the programme, helping you improve your health by becoming more active.

The Active Exercise Referral Programme will be personal to you and will be designed to suit your lifestyle and needs. The programme will include one-to-one consultations with your Health & Wellbeing Activator as well as access to NL Active facilities and suitable group fitness classes. The programme is divided into two phases, each 12 weeks long.

For more information email referral@northlincs.gov.uk

Public Health England (PHE) has developed an Active at Home guide. Initially developed to help older people keep active at home during the Covid-19 pandemic, the guide is a great tool to help people build physical activity into their day.

Download the booklet here – PHE Active at Home booklet.

Young people

It is recommended that all children and young people up to the age of 18 should be active for an average of 60 minutes per day, every day. This means doing an activity that makes you breathe faster and feel warmer. Don’t worry though, it doesn’t need to be all in one go – it can be spread across the day!

Need some help achieving this? Find more information on our activities below. There is also a range of positive activities for young people advertised on the Positive Activities North Lincolnshire website.
