If you’re doing no exercise at all, then just doing 30 minutes of exercise a week could make a big difference to your health – helping you to do more, enjoy more and feel better.

But we know that in between work, the school run, and everything else you need to do, it can be tough to find the time.

But you can and should find the time, after all – there’s only one you.

One You Telford provides activities that are designed to be fun, simple, and for people of all abilities.

And these activities are about much more than being active. You can meet new people and make new friends with those who are making the effort to be a bit more active, just like you.

So, what have you got to lose? Have a go and see what you think.
