Sports and keeping active

Lifestyle on Prescription can help to encourage lifestyle changes, showing that common conditions can be improved through behaviour changes.

Keeping physically active improves your health and quality of life, and can also help you to live longer. It's never too late to start doing some exercise.

Being active has many benefits and can help to:

  • reduce tiredness
  • reduce anxiety and depression
  • improve your mood and quality of life
  • strengthen your muscles, joints and bones
  • look after your heart and reduce the risk of other health problems

The best type of activity is one that makes you feel slightly warmer and breathe a bit heavier, getting your heart and pulse pumping faster than usual.

One You Cheshire East offers free, friendly local support to help you move more. This includes exercise classes and walking groups. The service is commissioned by the Council from Reed Wellbeing.

In addition popular free walk leaflets are provided by our ranger service and the public rights of way team that are free to download and print.
