INNOVATIVE operator 1Life has become the first leisure provider in the UK to offer free short walks at all of its leisure centres in a bid to make physical activity more accessible.
Working with Walking for Health – England’s largest network of health walk schemes – and local authorities, the walks will last anywhere between 15 minutes and one hour. All walks will be based from 1Life leisure centres and will be led by trained walk leaders and volunteers.
Head of health and physical activity at 1Life Matt Charles said: “We are very excited to be working with Walking for Health to deliver this new initiative.
“We fully support the Walking for Health vision for everyone to have access to a short, free and friendly walk within easy reach of where they live. Our leisure centres are ideally positioned to act as a walking hub that communities can easily find and access, to give them the opportunity to join our free walking programmes.”
