Keep Physically Active

National Fitness Day took place this week, with the aim of highlighting the role physical activity plays across the UK, helping raise awareness of its importance in helping us lead healthier lifestyles through being physically active.

Did you know that the Community Trust deliver a range of activities for all abilities?

For example, Walking Football was designed to help older players (50+) rekindle their love for football, keeping them active and increasing physical activity in the process.  We run five sessions across the week and love welcoming new players to the team.   We have also added a 35+ Masters Football session on a Monday evening.

We organise a walking group that takes place at Stanley Park in Blackpool.  An opportunity to not only catch up and socialise with others but also to get those all important steps in too!

Our popular Fit Blackpool weight management programme entered week two of the new course this week.   On the free programme you are supported to: Improve your eating habits, cut down on alcohol, increase your activity levels, reduce your weight and waistline, support each other to stay on track.

As part of our Fit Blackpool programme, we encourage participants to walk as much as they can to increase their overall fitness.  Their steps are tracked using a pedometer and our last cohort of participants walked a total of 6,704 miles.  This is equivalent to walking from Bloomfield Road to Wembley Stadium and back 14 times!

We also deliver; Pan ability Football, Tiny Tangerines, Forces Football and PL Kicks free football to name a few.

Blackpool FC shot-stopper, Chris Maxwell said:Having a healthy lifestyle is important because it helps a person control their weight, boost their energy, improve their mood and combat disease.”
