buzz Manchester Health & Wellbeing Service’s Physical Activity Referral Service (PARS) are currently delivering over 30 online exercise classes a week through Microsoft Teams. In normal times all exercise classes are delivered out in the community, but since the start of the pandemic the team have quickly adapted to the challenging situation and moved all classes online.
Exercise classes help people living in Manchester who would benefit from being more active in their everyday life. Your GP, practice nurse or healthcare professional will be able to refer you to the service if it’s right for you.
Manchester residents who regularly attend the classes often express how, in addition to the physical benefits they experience, they also feel the mental wellbeing benefits, with some developing friendships outside of the classes. As we all know, this online social contact is more important than ever in lockdown.
The PARS team also have a Facebook page where they share health and exercise information and videos. Why not like the page here?
buzz Manchester’s YouTube channel also has a wide range of exercise videos accessible to the public, you can check them all out here!
