Happy new year! To welcome the arrival of 2022, we asked our staff what their resolutions for the year ahead were, and we encourage you to think of some for yourself too. We have shared some resolutions for inspiration below, and how we can help you to reach them.
I am aiming to lose weight and become more healthy
The festive period for many is a time for indulgence, and if you’re looking to lose weight and feel healthier again for the year ahead, we have some amazing sessions for you.
Shape Up is a free 12-week programme for men aged 18 to 65 with a BMI over 30 which has been designed to improve your knowledge about what a healthy lifestyle is in order to ensure sustainable weight loss. You will take part in weekly sessions that combine education and physical activity.
If you need some help getting back into a fitness routine, you could join our Introduction to Exercise programme. These sessions are circuit based but are also mixed with Boxercise, Soccercise, badminton and even pilates, and the classes are adaptable to your level of ability.
I want to become more confident at meeting new people
If you’re aged 16 or 17, NCS is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills and realise your own potential. You’ll tackle new challenges whilst having the opportunity to make a positive change in the local community. There are programmes in the summer and autumn, so why not consider signing up and taking part in an unforgettable experience.
I would like to take more care about my physical and mental wellbeing
Our Get Set To Go programme helps people find the activity that’s right for them so that they are able to enjoy the physical, social and mental benefits of being active. Delivered in partnership with Mind in Mid Herts, the programme is funded by Sport England, the National Lottery and is a part of the “On Your Side” partnership with the English Football League. Get Set To Go has helped so many people with mental health struggles get up and active and feel better in themselves. Our weekly football sessions are for anyone aged 16 and over who wants to play in a non-judgemental and friendly environment. These sessions are fun and engaging, and can be adapted to suit a variety of needs.
Whatever your resolutions are, we’d love to hear about them, so share them with us on social media! We are wishing you a wonderful 2022!
