Purpose: To celebrate the natural environment as a means to improving health and wellbeing.
Blue Gym Manifesto
Growing medical evidence shows that access to the natural environment improves health and wellbeing, prevents disease and helps people recover from illness. Experiencing nature in the outdoors can help tackle childhood obesity, coronary heart disease, stress and mental health problems. Adults who become more active halve their risk of dying early from heart disease. People using the natural environment keep active longer.
1) Blue Gym is a campaign with lots of different activities falling under its umbrella designed to get more people physically active using our coastal and inland waters.
2) The Peninsula Medical School is leading research activity in response to requests from regional health care professionals who are trying to find ways of combating the obesity epidemic and the increasing incidence of psychiatric disorders. It will hopefully provide new medical evidence to confirm the cost effective role the Blue Gym can play in tacking many current health & social challenges
3) Through it’s activities Blue Gym aims to help us become a healthier & happier nation.
