At present we aren’t offering the Re-Active Exercise Referral due to the present Covid situation. As soon as we can, we will update this webpage once the service is up and running again.

Re-Active is a 12 week physical activity referral scheme (PARS) brought to you by the Cheltenham Trust. The 12 week membership incorporates a small range of activity options and is available via your GP or practice nurse. The aim is to work together to increase your physical activity levels.

How can it help you?
Regular physical activity has many health benefits including:

  • Reducing risk of cardiovascular disease; colon and breast cancer; type II diabetes; joint and back pain
  • Reducing risk of falls, depression and dementia
  • Helping to maintain a healthy weight
  • Helping to manage stress
  • Improved quality of life

What activities are available?

  • Gym based exercise
  • Swimming
  • Specific group based exercise

* Participation in activities are dependent on your medical condition(s)

How can you get involved?
If you would like to join the 12 week membership please discuss with your GP or practice nurse. They will check whether you meet the inclusion criteria and if appropriate they will send over your referral. Alternatively you can contact our Exercise Referral Specialist to have an informal discussion about the process (see details below).

What happens next?
Once you have been referred you will have a phone consultation to check the referral information, answer any questions and discuss the cost of the membership. You will then be offered an appointment to complete some paperwork and start your gym based exercise (if relevant).

Once the 12 weeks is complete you can continue on the monthly Re-Active direct debit for a further 9 months to help you maintain your lifestyle change.

Cheltenham: Walk Well

Getting active can be difficult, but our walking for health scheme encourages social, short, purposeful walks to support good health. Our walks are completely FREE and are led by trained volunteer walk leaders. Walks are generally between 30 and 60 minutes and a great way to get out, stretch your legs and meet people.

All of our walks finish with optional refreshments at local pubs and cafes enabling you to have a chat and get to know your fellow walkers. Since 2008 we’ve helped thousands of people enjoy the many benefits of walking, so come on down and join one of the 9 walks that we run across Cheltenham. All you need to do is simply turn up with a sturdy pair of shoes and away you go.

Becky Mogridge

“The service offered by my trainer was a real weight lifted off my shoulders. My PT listened to my needs, goals and struggles, and I knew instantly that I was in good hands. Since the sessions have started I haven’t looked back. Not only have I got a far more effective training programme, designed exactly for my needs, but it is fun and has plenty of variety. I wasn’t expecting the huge change in motivation, energy and happiness that I have already gained so quickly!

Professional, uplifting, inspiring, educational, fun and rewarding. I’m so excited for what is next. I could never thank my PT enough for the change it has made. I am no longer just plodding along.”
