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 Find an Activity page for more information on what is available locally and across London.
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 interventions available to help you lead more active and healthier lifestyles.
Being actively involved in sport and physical activity doesn’t just require physical exertion. Check out how you can get involved in volunteering and work experience opportunities in the borough, alongside other opportunities that are linked to physical activity in Barnet.
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.
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.
