Local Healthy Living & Exercise Opportunities
On this page:
As physiotherapists we are big advocates of a healthy lifestyle, to optimise not only your physical wellbeing but also your mental, emotional and social wellbeing. We have compiled a list of resources, some of which are specifically for those living in Wandsworth, but a lot of the below resources can be accessed and applied by everyone:
Wandsworth Wellbeing Hub
The Wandsworth Wellbeing Hub is a free and impartial NHS service which aims to help patients and the public to find organisations and services to support their health and wellbeing needs. Spanning from weight loss programmes, smoking cessation, exercise and gym programmes, as well as psychological support.
Active Lifestyles is a programme that offers adults within Wandsworth the chance to increase their physical activity levels. They run a number of weekly classes that include tai chi, Yoga, Pilates, over 50s keep fit classes, kickboxing, Zumba and walking sports. For all the weekly classes, the first session is free and there is no need to book, so why not give it a go!
Exercise on Referral – Wandsworth
The exercise on referral services provides support and advice from an exercise referral specialist, who will arrange to meet with you at your local leisure centre.
Talk Wandsworth provides free confidential help for problems such as stress, worry, and low mood. You can refer yourself.
Wandsworth Stop Smoking Service offers free help, advice and access to Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) and other stop smoking medications to all smokers who live or work in the Wandsworth area. You are four times more likely to stop smoking for good if you use a local stop smoking service to advise you on the right products to use and offer you regular support and information. Giving up smoking will improve your health and prevent serious illness.
