Philip Morgan, our New Year New You 2019 success story

People across Eastleigh Borough are being urged to start 2020 with ‘New Year New You’ to lead a healthier lifestyle.


Eastleigh Borough Council’s SportWorks team are launching the ‘New Year New You 2020’ initiative to encourage adults (16+ years) across the Borough to start on a new fitness journey with a series of beginner sport and fitness sessions in 6-9week courses, which all start in January.


The New Year New You programme is tailored for beginners and people of all abilities and fitness levels; and the friendly professional instructors are ready to motivate beginners.


Courses take place across the Borough at venues in Netley, Eastleigh, Hedge End, Fair Oak, Chandler's Ford and Hamble:

  • Couch to 5k

  • Group Fitness Course (gym-based)

  • Back to Badminton

  • Beginner Boxercise

  • Squash Girl Can (includes Racketball). 


SportWorks has helped hundreds of people to become more active through their New Year New You programme, including Philip, who took part in last year's Couch to 5k, which aims to help people, who don’t normally take regular exercise, to progress to successfully jogging 5,000 metres. He said:


"It’s changed my life for the better and given me the confidence to exercise more and try a variety of different things. It’s led to me having contact with a new group of people and helped my mental health as well. I haven’t finished my treatment yet but I feel like coming out the other side of it all and the added exercise has definitely complimented this.”

Follow in Philip's footsteps and make exercise part of your weekly routine in 2020.
