Health walks are easy, fun and free. What's more, with over 50 walks taking place each week, there's bound to be one near you.

Come along and enjoy the fresh air, meet new people and take in the sights of Glasgow's parks and gardens. ​​​

Lasting around an hour, Health Walks are easy, sociable and most of all good fun. Walk Leaders are on hand to encourage you to go at a pace you’re comfortable with and make sure you get the most out of your walk. All abilities are welcome, please bring a buddy if you need one to one support.

Set Up a Health Walk for Your Members

We also train and support organisations to establish their own walks for members and/or their local community. This allows organisations the freedom to offer walks at a time and day that they know will work for the groups involved. Please call 0141 287 0963 or email walking@glasgowlife.org.uk for more information. Read about how support from the Good Move Walking Team has helped Community InfoSource set up a regular walk for their members.

You can do these exercises at home using their useful Strength & Balance workout:
