Exercising Through Covid

In these difficult and uncertain times it is important we look after our mental and physical health as best we can. Through this second lockdown the government have indicated we can exercise outdoors with one person from outside of our household. This means you can go for a walk with your neighbour or a family member you do not live with.

During the current situation we still want to keep you all active and therefore have developed a wide variety of exercise videos that you can take part in at home. this includes a weekly programme of activities. These videos are for all abilities and can be found on our Active Dales Facebook page or our new You Tube channel. 

Please read this physical activity disclaimer when taking part in our videos. 

Health Promotion Days

Our health promotion days are often held at local Doctors surgeries. These days can give you an insight into how to live a healthier and more active lifestyle in your local area. We often provide free Boditrax scans, Health Walks and Activity Taster Sessions. Information about up coming Health Promotion Days below.

Below sessions are not all under our control please

be advised sessions may not be running during the

coronavirus pandemic
