Online Be Active - How Does It Work?

Sport Canterbury’s Green Prescription team is looking forward to bringing you another eight-week Be Active programme on-line – in your living room!  The programme is offered on-line so that you can still experience all the benefits of a ‘Be Active’ from home.

​​​​​​​Every week resources and links will be released via the Sport Canterbury website  for you to engage with and enjoy.

​​​​​​​Participants can enjoy the opportunity to:

• Try out a range of activities, e.g. low impact exercises, circuits, dance, yoga and tai chi

• Discuss topics that support a healthy lifestyle, e.g. motivation, types of exercise, healthy eating, managing stress

• Enjoy the support of the other participants and Sport Canterbury's Green Prescription staff

All activities are suited to people new or returning to activity, with a focus on enjoying being active and 'having a go.'

Be Active programmes are open to anyone who is:

  • Inactive and wanting to be more active
  • Medically stable to participate in low to moderate activity
  • Over 16 years old
  • Cost: $3 per session​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
