- Lancashiire Teaching Hospitals Preston
We offer our staff at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals a range of regular activities including Zumba, Box-fit, Pilates, Aerobics, Walking Groups, a Diet Club and we have an upcoming Pedometer Challenge in 2013!
The Pedometer Challenge was a great success with over 400 members of staff competing! We recently joined the Lancashire Cycle Challenge and came a respectable 14th!
We have a new Pilates class on Wednesdays, Box fit twice a week and a new Yoga class starting shortly.
We have linked up with Lancashire Sport and developed new Running Groups led by a trained run leader on Mondays at Prestom and Tuesdays at Chorley!
We offer Back care workshops to staff and onsite ergonomic assessments and advice.
We are due to run a new health promotion looking at exercise and diet.
We aim to be proactive with regards to staff health and well-being rather than reactive. I am proud to announce that we have recently won Silver accrediation! We're going for Gold next year!!
Things are moving at speed in Southport now, and that is not just our female cycle group. The cycle group have had 2 guided rides with Breeze cycling and now feel brave enough to plan their own route. So next Wednesday at 5.30pm a group of about 6 women will be cycling round Southport, watch out!!! If cycling is not your thing we also have a Yoga / relaxation class for all staff in the hospital gym on Thursday nights at 5pm. Thers is also a lunchtime Yoga class on every second Tuesday for staff to access. We have recently applied for bronze accreditation and waiting with our fingers crossed to hear if we have been successful.
The Wellbeing Team had a great day on Saturday 11th May supporting a health and fitness event in Heaton Park with Operation Fitness. "Boot camps" are really popular with our staff and a great way to keep your motivation up!
