Green Gyms are an innovative way to keep fit and improve wellbeing whilst transforming the local environment. There are over 100 Green Gyms running countrywide proving that this is becoming a more and more popular way to stay healthy. Participants find they can burn a third more calories in a Green Gym session than in a traditional aerobic workout!
Here in the North West we have a Green Gym at Whitby Park, Ellesmere Port on a Tuesday 10-12.30 and then 1-3pm.
This is a unique and free opportunity for local people to get involved and to take the lead in transforming a local green space for wildlife and the community, whilst learning new skills together.
Green Gym sessions are FREE and open to all volunteers, regardless of experience or levels of fitness. A variety of activities will allow volunteers to rotate between tasks, try out different tools and work at their own pace.
Experienced leaders will start and finish each session with a few minutes of gentle warm-up exercises and cool-down stretches to get muscles warmed up and reduce the risk of injury.
The well earned break half way through the session is a chance to socialise with like-minded people and enjoy a hot drink brewed outside!
Getting involved is simple! For more information or to book your place contact:
