As part of World Health Day on Friday 7 April, Westminster City Council in partnership with Everyone Active, is offering free health assessments and activities across Westminster. Gym members and non-members are invited to drop into one of seven leisure centres to have a free health assessment, take part in sporting challenges and receive advice on health and fitness options.
Participating centres include Jubilee Sports Centre, Little Venice Sports Centre, Marshall Street Leisure Centre, Paddington Recreation Ground, Porchester Centre, Queen Mother Sports Centre and Seymour Leisure Centre. People can also test themselves in fun sporting events including the Little Venice rowing challenge, a power challenge at the Porchester Centre and boxing taster sessions at Paddington Recreation Ground.
Cllr David Harvey, Cabinet Member for Sports, Leisure and Community, Westminster City Council, said: “We are pleased to be working with Everyone Active to offer Westminster residents free health assessments on World Heath Day. These assessments and sporting challenges will help people to make healthy choices around taking more exercise and be more aware of their own health needs. We are committed to giving people more opportunities to take extra exercise and have fun doing it."
Andy Davison, Contract Manager, Everyone Active, said: “Everyone Active is committed to raising awareness about the importance of both physical and mental health, and so we are delighted to be supporting World Health Day. We hope people across Westminster will take this opportunity to get active with friends and family, and learn about how to improve their health.”
