Health Walks - Somerset Wide

What is a health walk?

It's a gentle walk done on a regular basis for well-being.  It can help you to feel good, to have more energy, to sleep better and to manage your weight.  There are so many benefits from health walking- we're sure you'll see a difference in yourself even after your first walk!


To find out about your nearest health walk click here and locate your district of Somerset

Why not also check out Walking Sports opportunities click here



Set yourself a goal

You can walk 1,000 steps in around 10 minutes. Pedometers are a fun way to keep track of your walking. Use a pedometer to work out your average daily steps and then start adding extra steps.


 Being active will:

  • help you lose weight or maintain a healthy weight

  • strengthen your bones

  • reduce stress levels and symptoms of depression and anxiety

  • improve your sleep

Workplace Activity Pedometer Challenge 2017

Following the success of the previous Pedometer Challenge, we are delighted to have secured the funding necessary to repeat this venture in January 2017. We are delighted to offer your workplace the opportunity to participate in this programme!


Please see the details regarding how to register your workplace (if you already have a team set up on Zing you are good to go, just pop me an email to let me know you are participating). One major advantage of the Zingsomerset tracker is that an individual can be in 2 teams, meaning that it is simple to have your own internal challenges as well. For example, you can be in the Acme Industries team, but you can also be in the Acme Industries Dispatch team.
