Weight Management Programme

BPL has teamed up with Barnsley Council Public Health to roll out a super exciting weight management programme just for you.

What’s on the menu, you ask? Well, we’ve got diet and nutrition support, physical activity guidance and even nutritional education sessions. And that’s not all. You get unlimited access to gym, swim and group exercise sessions at any BPL venue in Barnsley. But wait, there’s more! We’re giving you 12 weeks of free access to our home workout online portal, Your Space at Home. That’s right, you can break a sweat right in your living room!

Now, let’s talk eligibility. Are you 18 or above? Do you live in Barnsley or have a Barnsley GP? Is your BMI between 25-40? If you’re nodding yes, then this programme is for you! To check your BMI, just swing by the NHS BMI Calculator. Note: this programme isn’t suitable for folks with heart conditions or COPD.

Ready to join? Awesome! Click the link below, select ‘Barnsley Wellbeing Programme’ from the dropdown list and you’re good to go. Or, if you prefer, you can ask your GP Practice for a referral. No appointment needed!

You don’t need to make an appointment, just contact your GP Practice and request a referral to the BPL Tier 2 Weight Management Programme.

Health, Strength and Stability

We’re also offering a group exercise class called ‘Health, Strength and Stability.’ It’s all about boosting your fitness, strength and balance. Plus, it’s a great place to make friends. Our super-specialist instructor will guide you through exercises that you can do seated or standing, using resistance bands and weights. Just show up in comfy clothes and shoes, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Your first 6 sessions are on us! After that, it’s only £3 per session. Want to know more? Send us an email at community.health@bpl.org.uk or give us a call at 01226 738657.
