    Lloyd Park Green gym

    With Lloyd Park Green Gym (Waltham Forest)

    At Lloyd Park

    Activity description

    Green Gyms are fun and free outdoor sessions where you will be guided in practical activities such as planting trees, sowing meadows and establishing wildlife ponds. Unlike other conservation projects, the emphasis is very much on health and fitness - volunteers warm up and cool down in preparation for a range of light to vigorous activities to suit all abilities. In fact, almost a third more calories can be burnt in some Green Gym sessions than in an average aerobics class! Unlike many conventional gyms, taking part in a Green Gym is free and a great social activity too, allowing you to meet new people and work together to transform your local area, while also learning new skills every week. Green Gym recently featured in an innovative study run by the University of Westminster for the BBC2 programme Trust Me I Am A Doctor. The study monitored changes to the level of the stress hormone cortisol in separate groups of participants taking part in Green Gym, Yoga and Mindfulness sessions. Compared to a similar group of participants that did not engage in any extra activity, the participants in the Green Gym group had an average 20% improvement in cortisol awakening response, which was increased up to 35% in some participants. This study also showed that Green Gym participants reported higher levels of well-being and lower levels of stress.
