The Active Wellness Scheme is an initiative to help anyone within the King’s Community who has low physical or mental wellbeing and/or a mental health issue through the use of exercise therapy to improve their general wellbeing and thrive in their day-to-day activities.
Unlock your potential:
The Active Wellness Scheme aims to provide participants with the tools and resources that will empower them to make sustainable lifestyle changes that will allow them unlock their full potential.
Physical activity has been proven to have a profound positive effect on general wellbeing and quality of life. Whether you have struggled with low mood, poor sleep and concentration, anxiety, stress or depression, have a short-term illness, or a chronic physical health problem, we aim to show you how to begin changing your lifestyle for the better.
While being on the programme, participants will have access to the following:
- Up to six 1-2-1 sessions or online led by one of our Health & Fitness Coaches
- Free access to King’s Sport & Wellness Gyms, group fitness classes and BeActive!
- Nutritional advice
- Wellbeing resources
- Exclusive discounts (upon completing the programme)
- The programme includes two main routes as outlined below.
This route is for those who require more specialist 1-2-1 support and are paired with a Health & Fitness coach for six weeks. Our Health & Fitness coaches will provide you with simple, effective and personalised physical activity programmes and holistic wellbeing support.
The programme is delivered in-person at one of our gym sites and may include gym programmes, group exercise classes, home workouts, step count goals, and much more!
The coaches can also provide support and advice on other lifestyle factors such as diet, sleep and managing stress through physical activity.
