Maybe your goal is to lose weight? Read about the Rebalance programme and watch the video. Or perhaps you are concerned about your health and struggling to get active? If you live in Camden (or Islington), you can speak to your GP or other health professional about exercise on referral, a free 12-week exercise programme. Or there's Camden Active Communities, a new community sport and physical activity project delivered in Somers Town and St Pancras, Regents Park, Gospel Oak and Kilburn. And for those who want to enjoy the open air as they get fit, there are free outdoor gyms, health walks and 'Green Gym' activities. Men's health is one of the subjects at the website One You Camden.
