New health and wellbeing activities in Halifax

5 Days Every Week

A new partnership between Calderdale College and Calderdale Council is bringing a range of new wellbeing and fitness activities for all to enjoy, in the heart of the borough. A new health and wellbeing hub at Inspire Centre on Francis Street, Halifax, is running a variety of fitness classes for all abilities, and also delivering a range of wellbeing support for staff and local residents through the Council’s Better Living Service.

The College provides the venue for five days of fitness every week, from Zumba and Dance to Yoga and Movement Stretch Meditation, all hosted by the Council’s sports service. The classes are included in the Council’s sports membership or available on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Support From Better Living

In addition to the College-based classes, the Better Living Service will also be on site to provide confidential advice and support to help with reaching goals such as managing weight and getting active and fit. This includes the chance to have 12 weeks of free Slimming World sessions where residents are eligible.

The Better Living team will be in the Inspire Centre on Monday afternoons and all day on Tuesdays to provide drop-in sessions and one-to-one appointments.
