Activity and wellbeing

There are a range of activities and support available to help residents of Newcastle get more active and healthier across the City.

Whether you want to try something new for the first time or want to pick up where you left off, there is something for everyone.  

Physical activity does way more than raise your heart rate; it is proven to have a positive impact on physical and mental health, educational attainment, employability, social cohesion and a whole lot more.

It's never too early or too late to think about healthy lifestyles.

Did you know?

We promote all forms of physical activity, not just sport and exercise classes. Most things we do daily involve us moving and being active. We underestimate gardening, taking breaks from sitting, playing games with family, taking part in hobbies, travelling by foot or bike (but all of these count as us being active).

For example, taking the stairs burns more energy per minute than jogging, some gardening activities are more intense than a general gym workout, taking breaks from sitting helps boost your metabolism, and walking counts as moderate exercise.

There are a lot of ways you are already active and a lot of ways you can choose to add more.
