Hackney Council’s new health initiative of £1 fitness classes and other free activities, will encourage residents to take control of their health for benefits now and in later life.
This is a great opportunity for residents to get active and get healthy so get involved in ONE YOU Hackney today.
ONE YOU Hackney will help residents – from seven to over 70 – to move more, eat well, drink less and lead healthier lifestyles. Across the borough there are estate-based fitness classes for only £1, free fitness classes in parks and free healthy cooking and eating courses.
By taking an online health quiz called ‘How Are You’. This provides personal recommendations based on individual results. It directs people to tools and advice to help them take action where it’s most needed and it also provides a link to the Council’s Public Health webpage which lists fitness class and healthy cooking dates, times and locations as well as other healthy living support, advice and information.
