Free instructor led sessions in Brent parks

29 July 2020

Get fit for free by booking one of the new Brent Council and Our Parks instructor led sessions at a number of parks in the borough.

Free to book and carefully organised in a safe, covid-19 secure way, these sessions will take place over eight weeks starting on Saturday 1 August.

Local residents can book a slot online and with a range of dates and times available, there will be a session to suit everyone.

Cllr Hirani, Lead Member for Public Health, Culture and Leisure said:

“There are so many benefits to getting outside for fresh air and exercise. Being physically active helps to support mental wellbeing as well as the more obvious physical benefits. Covid-19 has highlighted in particular how crucial it is that we regularly practice healthy habits and we want to help support our residents to be more active. 

“Our parks are very popular and are a great way for friends and family to get out and exercise together.

“We want to encourage those who are new to exercise or those who haven’t been active over the lockdown period to get out there and make the most of these sessions. The trained instructors will help give people the confidence, motivation and guidance they need to get back out there and start a new fitness routine.”

A new national campaign by the Government is underway to inspire adults to kick start their health and fitness journeys to reduce their risk of serious illness, including COVID-19.

The campaign, which is part of a new Obesity Strategy, will encourage adults to introduce small changes to help them reach a healthier weight. Free tools and apps, including a new app for the free 12-week NHS Weight Loss Plan, will be used to support people drink less alcohol, get active and make healthier food choices.
