Get moving

Taking more exercise is the best thing you can do for both your body and your mind.

Ideas to get active

Get happy, get healthy, get active. No matter how well you do it, how you look or even how red your face gets you will feel rewarded! Take our quick quiz to find an activity you'll love.

There are leisure centres and sports facilities, as well as free outdoor gym equipment for you to use.

Try fun and easy ways for you to involve your family in getting active. You could even set up a walking bus to make the journey to school healthier and more environmentally friendly.

Look for groups at your local community centre or activities advertised in local magazines such as chair based exercise and Zumba classes. Contacting a lifestyle advisor can help you find what’s right.

If you have more time to enjoy the great outdoors, you could:

The Cycle to Work scheme provides support and advice to help set you up for commuting by bike.

Try walking

Join a local health walk to get more active and meet new people.

Search the Walking for Health website for a group near you.

Regular exercise can keep you feeling happier and healthier.
