Health and Wellbeing
Good health and wellbeing is important to all of us. We run a range of free fitness classes for tenants as well as offering opportunities for people to get involved with activities that can help prevent social isolation. We also work closely with partner organisations to promote health and wellbeing for all.
Get Fit For FREE!
Whether you just want to feel more healthy or you're looking to lose some weight we run a range of health and fitness classes to suit all abilities. All of our classes are run by experienced instructors in a friendly, informal environment.
Registration for our new eight week fitness course, which begins on January 22nd 2018 is now open. Contact Caroline Winnall to book your place. All classes are FREE for Wychavon residents.

Walk for Health
Physical inactivity directly contributes to one in six deaths in the UK. Public Health England has launched the Active10 app to encourage us all to fit just 10 minutes of brisk walking into our daily routine. There are lots of ways to fit ten minutes into your day - download the App to find out more.
OR WHY NOT TRY A LOCAL HEALTH WALK...Health Walks are weekly free 30 minute walks (or sometimes longer) which start all over the country. Ideal for those who want to move more but are looking for company and a gentle start. Find your nearest walk here: https://www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/
