Joining an exercise group or class can be a brilliant way to meet new people and get active at the same time. There are lots of different types of activities you can do in a group, with sessions across the county catering for all ability, experience and confidence levels.

Whether it’s a walking group, a running club, a group that meets at your local community centre, or a class at a leisure centre, there are so many options out there to explore, and the health benefits of group exercise are as varied as the type of activities on offer. This page can help you connect with groups of people in the same boat as you, and encourage you to take that first step towards being more active in your local community.
