Choose the option that's best for you

Face to face classes happen in community centres, churches, libraries and fitness centres across Hampshire. They’ll be one near you.

 

Some people find they’re more motivated when they meet up with others face to face. It’s a good way to make friends and get support from the group.

How do I book my sessions?

Join today to find a class that suits you and book straight away. You can see the type of sessions we have available on the timetable. But that’s just a taster of what we have. There are plenty more times and locations to suit you. Once you’ve joined, we’ll help you find a class that’s right for you.

 

Before you start the sessions, everyone gets a 30-minute phone chat. We’ll cover what you want to get out of the course, your needs and set some achievable goals.

How do the classes work?

Whatever your goal: to lose weight to enjoy more time with your family, become more independent or do more activities that you enjoy. Our team understands any health conditions you have and will tailor sessions to suit you.

Each session is an hour and a half, and will include:

  • 45 minutes focusing on food and eating. You’ll learn how to adopt eating habits for weight loss. But in a way that means you can still enjoy your food and that fits in with your everyday life.
  • 45 minutes of fun, easy exercises. You’ll just need to wear comfortable clothes. You don’t need any extra equipment.

Everyone knows that it’s not always easy to stick to your goals. Our experts will work with you to set realistic, enjoyable activity plans.

 

Find out more about the programme.

Is it safe for me to exercise?

Even if you’re living with a health condition, it can still be safe to be more active. Your expert coach will go at a pace that feels good for you. They will make sure that you feel comfortable with every exercise and can personalise them to your needs, for example seated exercises if you find it hard to stand up.

Can I bring someone with me?

If you are being cared for by someone, you need support or you are not the main cook in the house, then it can be helpful to bring someone with you. You’ll also get support from other members and your coach.

What is the closed group option?

We want to make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. So, we have groups available for:

  • men only
  • women only
  • certain cultures and religions.

 

When you speak to your coach during your 30-minute chat, let them know if you would prefer a closed group.

Still not sure?

If you’re still undecided, check out our FAQs or give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.
