Be Healthy, Be Active!
Physical activity has a key part to play in improving health and well being. It helps to prevent coronary heart disease, stroke and some forms of cancer – our countries leading killers. It can also reduce the risk of developing hypertension, diabetes, overweight and obesity.
Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust’s Community Fitness Team can support you to increase the amount of physical activity you do to achieve real improvements to your health and wellbeing.
The team run a range of courses and initiatives across Torbay, so that wherever you live in the Bay there’s bound to be something suitable for you whatever your ability.
You can contact the Community Fitness Team on 0300 456 1006 (local rate number).
The Fitness in Torbay exercise referral programme is a 10 week exercise programme supervised by fully qualified exercise professionals and is open to anyone registered with a GP in the Bay.
An exercise programme for residents across Torbay and South Devon who have a fear of falling or who feel unsteady. If you have a history of falling or have been diagnosed with Osteoporosis, our strength and balance classes could help improve your confidence and mobility.
Bay walks is a programme of walks across Torbay led by volunteers. There are short, medium, long and progression walks in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham – so we have something for everyone.
We know that being active is great for our health but frequent movement during the day is just as important as regular physical activity – find out more from Public Health Devon.
