Leading an active lifestyle

Steps to health

The Steps to Health Programme promotes better health through physical activity. If your GP/Practice Nurse/Health Care Professional believes physical activity will help to manage any medical condition you may have, they may refer you to the scheme (There is an inclusion/exclusion criteria).

You will work with experienced and qualified exercise specialists to safely improve your health over a 12 week programme.

Being more active, more often can potentially:

  • reduce the risk of heart disease
  • reduce the risk of osteoporosis
  • control body weight
  • reduce blood pressure
  • increase energy
  • improve stamina
  • improve strength and tone of muscles
  • improve shape and appearance
  • improve confidence
  • improve posture
  • reduce stress or depression

An initial exercise consultation is required and sessions will cost no more than £3.00 each.
