Park Club Chatham, operated by charitable leisure management company Soll Leisure, is launching a new project called ‘Talk Health, Be Active’. The aim of this project is to improve the health of inactive local residents in Medway, Kent, and thanks to funding from the Big Lottery the Park Club are offering free health MOT’s, exercise sessions and weight management advice to support the local community to lead healthier lifestyles.

The project starts on October 9th and provides free 12-week courses with a view to improving participant’s health and physical activity levels. To be eligible for the project participants must be inactive (0-1 days physical activity a week) and be looking to improve their health by lowering blood pressure, BMI or risk of Diabetes etc. The sessions available during the 12-week courses include: 

- Beginners Circuits

- Health Walks

- Supervised Gym session

- Nutritional workshops.

Participants will receive a health MOT on week 1 and 12, as well as free exercise sessions and nutritional advice to work towards improving results and sustaining a healthy, active lifestyle. The project is also open to workplaces, delivering health MOT’s for employees and providing advice on making improvements.

The health MOT’s will be delivered using the latest technology, Boditrax machine, which is a body composition and activity tracking machine that provides a health analysis to monitor your health, set goals and track physical activity. The health MOT provides results for blood pressure, BMI, visceral fat, Body Fat %, BMR metabolic rate, well-being (Warwick-Edinburgh Mental Well-being Scale) and much more.

There will also be monthly ‘Talk Health’ drop in sessions provided, inviting local residents to come along and ask for advice and guidance from qualified fitness professionals. This is a great opportunity to discuss any barriers that affect people being active and receive the guidance and confidence to overcome them to begin a path to a healthier lifestyle.

Physical inactivity is high on the agenda as a nation, with it being reported that over 20 million people in the UK are currently physically inactive. There are numerous health issues associated with physical inactivity, both physically and mentally, which we aim to tackle to improve the health of the community in Medway.

Richard Claydon, Community Development Manager for Soll Leisure commented, “We are really excited to launch our new ‘Talk Health, Be Active’ project and are encouraging local inactive residents looking to improve their health to get in touch and take advantage of the sessions available. The Park Club is committed to improving the health of the local community, and we are grateful for the funding to help us achieve this“.

The project starts the week commencing Monday 9th October at Park Club Chatham, where Boditrax health MOT’s are available to get started. All participants will be provided with a free pedometer to keep track of their activity throughout the project and there will be different options available following the 12-week courses to help participants continue the healthy lifestyle changes they have made.

For more information about the project or to register your interest contact us. Registration for the project must be made before the first session. Further detail is also available by calling Park Club Chatham on 01634 565349 or by visiting www.parkclub.co.uk.
