A new scheme aims to get people more active as we move out of Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.

WV Gets Active is a free 6 week exercise programme, delivered in collaboration between City of Wolverhampton Council and Active Black Country Partnership. It works on a mobile phone app and challenges users to build up their exercise, at a pace that suits them, to feel fitter and healthier. 

It is completely free and tailored to individual fitness and activity levels. It challenges users to increase their exercise, promoting lifestyle change and making regular exercise a part of everyday routine.

The programme enables participants to track their progress over 6 weeks with the goal of reaching 30 minutes of exercise each day. No special equipment is needed, other than a smart phone and comfortable shoes to walk in.
