The Move More Western Isles project offers support to help you to become more active and improve your health and wellbeing. It does this by offering a range of FREE physical activity opportunities.
Move More Western Isles is aimed at people aged over 16 years who are living with one or more long-term conditions (including cancer), and who would like to benefit from support to improve their health by increasing their physical activity.
We offer a variety of one-to-one and group exercise programmes uniquely tailored to you to improve your strength, balance and cardiovascular health. Activities on offer may include: easy aqua aerobics, gentle movement, group ‘Move More’ circuits, gardening, an introduction to fitness equipment and group walking.
Working with you, the Move More Activity Officer will create a personalised programme of activity suited to your individual needs and ability. The programme can last 12 weeks with ongoing support offered after your programme has ended.
