Active NAtion

Our Active Journey classes provide opportunities to make friends, build strength or manage specific conditions through tailored group exercise and activity classes.

WHO IS IT FOR?

The classes are designed for people who require physical activity and exercise to manage their health condition. Your session will be led by our qualified, experienced and friendly instructors plus regular visits from trained health care professionals such as physiotherapists, nurses and occupational therapists.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

£3

Classes normally cost just £3 per session. This can be paid in cash to the instructor each week however most of our participants prefer to use our Pre-Paid Activity Card. This card allows you to pay only £25 for 10 sessions at a time.

HOW CAN THE CLASSES BENEFIT ME?

We have a range of classes that contribute to the management of long term health conditions such as:

  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD).

  • Neurological conditions (including stroke survivors and those with multiple sclerosis (MS) and Parkinsons).

  • Other long term health conditions.

how do the classes run?

All our community health classes are made up of two core areas:

  • A physical exercise programme, designed for people with long term health conditions and tailored individually for you.
  • Information on looking after your body and your conditions, and advice on managing your condition and your symptoms.

More Information

The classes are designed for people who require physical activity and exercise to manage their condition. Your session will be led by our qualified, experienced and friendly instructors plus regular visits from trained health care professionals such as physiotherapists, nurses and occupational therapists.

You’ll be in a group of about 8-16 people. You can join for just six to eight weeks, or stay longer to continually manage your condition – perfect for once you’ve completed other rehabilitation programmes. We recommend that you start with two sessions of about an hour each week – however you can participate in as many or as few classes as you wish. Our classes are held in local hospitals, community halls, leisure centres and health centres.

Participating in our community health classes is a good way to learn how to exercise safely and at the right level for you.  Most people enjoy the classes and return once or twice a week. It builds confidence and it’s great fun meeting others in a similar situation.
