Hub Network Activities

In addition to our gym, swim and fitness class offer, here at Better we offer a range of community projects as part of our Hub Network. These projects are designed to provide a wide range of opportunities for people across Barnet, removing barriers to physical activity, such as cost, cultural barriers and time constraints. Satellite sessions are delivered from community centres, green spaces, places of worship, children centres, care homes and schools, targeting specific groups that don’t necessarily receive the same opportunities as others. 

If you’re an organisation which would benefit from having satellite sessions in your venue, please contact

Active Outdoors

With an open space located within one mile of most homes in Barnet, there are plenty of opportunities to get active outdoors in the borough.

Women and Girls Sessions

All people should have the same opportunities of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Nevertheless, women and girls still face barriers that stop them from participating in sports and physical activity. Being active and healthy is essential for the personal growth of every single individual; it contributes to increased self-confidence and a sense of community, and it benefits both the body and mind.

FAB encourages participation in sports and physical activity by women and girls and have created a timetable that shows the many opportunities to stay active in the borough.
