Back to Activities

Exercise4Fun is a FREE 12-week active lifestyle programme taking place in Sawston, Melbourn and Linton Sports and Leisure Centres. If you are currently inactive or would like to get to a healthier weight, then this programme might be just what you need.

This activity is good for wellbeing because

  • physical exercise can make you stronger, healthier and happier;
  • support from a qualified instructor will ensure you get the most out of any exercise you do;
  • if you haven’t ever been to a gym or sports centre, this scheme will give you the confidence to use these facilities.

What to expect

As part of a group of up to 12 people, each 12-week programme will give you an introduction to a range of activities, including:

• wellbeing walks;
• yoga;
• swimming;
• cricket;
• football;
• badminton;
• New Age Kurling;
• boccia.

Activities will be chosen by the group in consultation with the instructor(s).
It doesn’t matter whether you have done these activities before or not – you’ll be supported and encouraged as you try things out.

The programme will also include fitness tests and progress data collection at weeks 1, 6 and 12.

Following completion of session one, you will be awarded a 90-day free pass to all sports centre facilities and classes to support your progress.  At the end of the 12-week programme, you may be offered a further 90-day pass depending on certain targets being met and attending 9 out of 12 of the sessions.
