The Active Lifestyles team work in partnership with Local Health agencies and DC Leisure to promote an Exercise Referral Scheme (Health Works) based at Fleming Park Leisure Centre. The scheme is an NHS- endorsed Accredited Scheme at Silver Level. This means the scheme is a Recognised Scheme of Excellence providing a high quality of service.

Health Works Exercise Referral Scheme

 

What is it? 

A 12 week Physical Activity Referral Scheme which is designed to provide opportunities for people to improve their health by becoming more active, more often.

 

Who is it for? 

Anyone over 16 who may be at risk from conditions that would benefit from an increase in physical activity including being overweight/obese, smoking, having high blood pressure or suffering from stress

 

How does it work?

Following an assessment from their GP, patients who are given a Physical Activity Referral are given a FREE consultation with a member of the Health Works team.  After this consultation a personal exercise programme is designed according to the individual. Support is provided on the scheme by regular reassessments and encouragement. For more information please contact Healthworks on 02380 684813.

Health Walks

 

What is it?

Through funding from NHS Hampshire, Health Walks are organised walks led by a qualified walk leader. We run 11 walks every week throughout the year come rain or shine. Walking is a great calorie burner. It is low intensity, low impact, easily sustainable and easy to do. All you need is a good pair of shoes, suitable clothing for the weather and enthusiasm!!.

We warmly welcome you to come along and join in with this great form of exercise, which is healthy, fun and free!!! Each walk lasts approximately 1 hour with a distance of 3 miles covered. Some walks may have fast and slow walking groups.
