Physical Activity can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%.

Exercise is the miracle cure we’ve always had, but for too long we’ve neglected to take our recommended dose. Our health is now suffering as a consequence

Research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

So… Because physical activity is so good for us, we have a number of initiatives to help improve the health and wellbeing of the Hertfordshire adult population.

We have a number of projects that are either in the pipeline or are happening across Hertfordshire. Please see the list below for details:

Active Together: Strength and balance classes for older adults to reduce the risk of having a fall.

Active Herts: One to one consultations for adults living in Broxbourne, Watford and Hertsmere who would like to become active.

C U Fitter Cancer United exercise classes: Tailored exercise classes for adults receiving treatment for cancer or who have recently finished their treatment.

Sporting Reminiscence: Sessions for adults with memory loss or dementia who would like to meet weekly to reminisce about sport.

Mental Health: Walking rugby and fellas fitness with a focus on promoting positive mental health.
