Give it a Go: 6 Week Programme

If you’d like a bit more support and need some extra guidance about getting into fitness, try our Give It A Go programme. For six weeks we’ll be by your side supporting you in a range of activities. Following an assessment we’ll be able to direct you to a range of activity options and you’ll be able to give it a go.

At the end of six weeks, we’ll have helped you to feel more confident around your activity choices and be able to work out what’s best for you in the busyness of life.
