The Lifestyles Buddy Community
Lifestyles Health Clubs has formed the Buddy Community to help get the people of Coventry moving and engaging in exercise, as well as providing a channel of inspiration to help engage everyone. Using a support network of volunteers to keep the scheme alive and partnerships with local clubs and groups to help refer the participants into after they finish the scheme.
The Lifestyles Buddy Community will be available as either an 8-week guidance programme or sign posting to advice or community activities. Lifestyles Buddy’s will be in charge of engaging members of the community into physical activity, this can be either participating in exercise classes at one of our centres, attending sports sessions or simply increasing a members’ daily activity.
We will then look to provide a sustainable progression for all members who pass through the scheme either into one of the leisure centres or local activity.Join us on Facebook
