Be Active Programmes

Sport Canterbury's Green Prescription team, Pegasus Health and the Canterbury District Health Board have combined resources to deliver eight week Be Active programmes for people wanting to increase their level of activity and have fun along the way.

What Is Involved?

In every eight week programme, Be Active participants enjoy the opportunity to:

  • Try out a range of activities, e.g. low impact exercise, aqua jogging or aquacise, gym, sports, dance
  • 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 giving things 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
