The Fit and Active Barnet (FAB) campaign launches today. So… what is FAB about?

FAB is all about helping residents in Barnet to increase physical activity into their daily health routine.

Not only is being active key to keeping your heart healthy, reducing your risk of serious illness,  it is also a great way of socialising and getting involved with your local community.

FAB is having two launch events that are open to Barnet residents to attend:

  • Wednesday 18th July, Brent Cross Shopping Centre. Better Leisure will have an information stand all day, on the ground floor just outside Marks and Spencers.
  • Saturday 21st July, Better Leisure Centres will also be having an open day in the  leisure centres listed below to launch FAB.  Plus, there will be free activities!
