The 12-week referral scheme
What is HealthWorks?
HealthWorks is a physical activity referral scheme (often initially 12 weeks) designed to provide opportunities for people to improve their health and become more active. HealthWorks, based at Places Leisure Eastleigh, is an NHS-endorsed Accredited Scheme.
Regular structured physical activity will help you to:
- Strengthen your heart
- Improve your circulation
- Lower your blood pressure and cholesterol levels
- Control your weight
- Decrease your risk of developing or help with the management of chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers
- Reduce stress and make you feel better about yourself
Your own fitness level should meet the needs of your daily life. You should be able to climb the stairs, take a brisk walk and perform other daily activities without getting breathless or tired.
