As a part of YMCA London South West’s wider approach to Health & Wellbeing issues in the east of the London Borough of Merton, we are involved in several Community Work projects which aim to support healthier lifestyles and improve families’ and individual’s general health & wellbeing.
One such project is Sports Blast, a scheme offering free exercise sessions to families and young adults in the community. YMCA LSW offers weekly sessions of Zumba, legs, Bums and Tums, Circuits training and parent and child fitness sessions.
YMCA LSW is also offering the ‘Healthy Schools’ scheme to local primary schools in the Mitcham area. Here, children and parents can take part in after school exercise sessions or healthy cooking courses. Parents are also invited to learn about nutrition and how to achieve a healthy lifestyle.
