Physical activity sessions that work for our health and care staff

Building on the extremely successful Tottenham Hotspur Shape Up Programme, run in Autumn 2022 we are looking to run this programme again beginning in January 2023.

These will be run indoors at the iconic SPURS ground, by our Tottenham colleagues.

These sessions will be open to all fitness levels – our colleagues at Tottenham are skilled at supporting all levels of fitness and need.

We are also exploring an online ‘virtual’ fitness sessions and need your views on how these might best work for you!

In the future, we hope to offer sessions based in NHS and social care settings.

We have been delighted by the feedback and progress made by colleagues who attended the first Tottenham Hotspur Shape Up Programme and would value your feedback to help us focus the next course.

“I love exercising in the shadow of that incredible stadium and being spurred (sorry) on by colleagues, coaches and other staff. I have gone from a very sedentary lifestyle of little or no exercise to doing 30 mins per day at least as well as the Tuesday session. I think this may well have saved my life, its sounds dramatic but it is probably true.” (Participant from 2022 sessions)

“This is an amazing programme and has helped me regain confidence in both my fitness and my NHS identity! I wanted to get fit in a group but didn’t know where to start. Here everyone has different bodies and fitness but shared experience and a shared goal, so I felt comfortable enough to give it a go. Doing this with a community of staff from all roles and areas in North Central London reminds me that we are in this together, in the sessions or at work.” (Participant from 2022 sessions)
