Get active

Regular physical activity is good for your physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Physical activity for you might be participating in sport or doing the Couch to 5K. But it might also be a brisk walk with the dog, visiting parks or woodland with family, or doing gentle exercises in your living room.

Physical activity can support weight management, muscle strengthening, and improve health conditions. Active Together is here to support you get active, in your own way – Let’s Get Moving.
