Fit & Active Barnet Hub
Welcome to the Fit & Active Barnet (FAB) Hub, hosted by Better (operator of the borough’s five leisure centres), in partnership with the FAB Partnership.
Here you will be able to find almost everything you need to help you lead a more active and healthy lifestyle. Featuring an activity finder, FAB Card registration, health and wellbeing guidance and much more; whether you are new to physical activity, regularly participate or you are returning after some time away, the Hub will help you on your journey to a more active and healthier you!
The FAB Card is a FREE annual membership available to Barnet residents, giving access to a range of benefits across Barnet Leisure Centres and beyond.
Leading an active lifestyle helps to keep your heart healthy, reduce your risk of serious illnesses and strengthen muscles and bones. It is also a great way to spend time with the family, meet friends and get involved with the local community.
We all know we need to be active, but we are often unaware of how much activity will benefit our health.
Visit our Health and Wellbeing pages which will provide you with examples of how much physical activity you should be striving to achieve per week, as well as information on intervention programmes delivered by Better. These intervention programmes are available to those referred by their GP.
You will also find other useful information and tips to help you improve your health and wellbeing.
Do you have any exciting ideas that could improve your community? Support is available for projects which encourage Barnet residents to be active, learn and play together.
Our full accessible programme is available to download.
Discover how you can live a healthier life with our free online health check. Our free online health check assesses your response to a few simple questions and uses these to tailor a range of personalised tips and advice that will help to improve your health and wellbeing.
Are you facing a dilemma where you want to get active, or maybe you want to try a new sport or activity but you’re not quite sure what’s on offer in the borough or where to start looking? Let us give you a helping hand. Visit our Activity Finder tab and let Get Active London help you search opportunities in Barnet and across the Capital.
There are also plenty of opportunities to get active outdoors, with parks located within one mile of most homes in Barnet. Whether you would like to take a walk using Active trails, improve fitness at our outdoor gyms, receive cycle training through the Cycle Confident scheme, now is the time to act.
There are plenty of ways to keep your body and mind healthy even when you can’t get to the gym, pool or court. We know that staying motivated and active on your own can be a challenge, so we’ve created workouts and classes that are made to help. If you are looking for inspiring home exercise classes to start or maintain your at-home fitness routine, the free virtual classes featured on the Better UK app, gives you access to a library of 600 online fitness classes.
Whether you haven’t done much for a while or just looking for the best ways to get in shape, these exercises are easy, gentle and can be done indoors without the need for any gym equipment.
