Fit and Active Barnet is FAB

Fit and Active Barnet is the name of our new physical activity campaign in Barnet.  My DPH challenge is a good kick start to the campaign.

We have lots of plans for the FAB campaign and in this post I want to tell you about a couple of them. 

Outdoor Gyms are a great way of getting fit – and they’re free!  We currently have 2 outdoor gyms in Barnet parks and have plans for more during the year.  Outdoor gyms have a range of equipment to work on both strength and stamina.  You don’t need to book them, just turn up and try them out.  Remember to wear clothing that will enable you to move easily and wear trainers or other flat shoes with grip on the soles to prevent you slipping.
The second thing I want to mention is the marked and measured routes.  We have a range of routes and markers along the way will tell you how far you’ve come and show you where to go.  Councillor Helena Hart and I took the opportunity to walk one of these routes – a great idea for a lunch time stroll.  To find out more about the outdoor gyms and the marked and measures walking routes, have a look on the Barnet council  website:
