Kick start the year with Active Bucks
There is strong scientific evidence that physical activity can make a major contribution to leading a healthier, happier and less lonely life but not enough of us are meeting the recommended weekly requirements. In fact, data suggests that over 37% of Bucks adults don’t undertake enough physical activity to really benefit their health (150mins per week).
The Active Bucks project was setup in 2015 to try and reduce this figure and during this time, has helped around 5,000 residents take their first steps into a new physical activity.
Over the next 18 months, there will be two new exciting programmes setup as part of the Active Bucks initiative. One project will be specifically targeting older adults, aged 65+, whilst the other will have two strands; the first will focus on engaging Men and the second on Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities. A wide range of activities will be on offer, all of which will be will be low cost (between £2-4), beginner friendly and most importantly fun!
A few examples of what is to come;
- Nordic wellbeing walks
- Men’s Yoga
- Beginners running groups
- Dog agility classes
