GET FIT DERBYSHIRE IS SOCIAL, FUN, AND GOOD FOR YOU - NO MATTER HOW YOUNG OR OLD YOU ARE!

We organise three levels of activities to suit most people in Derbyshire from complete "couch potatoes" through to people who are already fit and want to get fitter.

Three activity levels to help you to get fit, stay fit, and push yourself:

If you are completely new to fitness please try a level 1 activity first as these are most gentle. Once you find that easy progress to a level 2 activity, and so on. You may get out of breath at times, but still be able to carry on a conversation.

Level 1 - Beginners level - mostly flat, maximum five miles
Level 2 - Suitable for most people - some hills, maximum ten miles
Level 3 - For fitter people - hilly, and potentially longer distance

Group Rules

If you RSVP for an event and cannot attend, please change your RSVP to No so you aren't keeping others waiting.

As well as Get Fit Derbyshire we also invite you to try Get Fit Nottingham, and Get Fit Leicester.

Your first event is free then we suggest a £1 donation per event, or you can make a suggested £15 donation for the year and attend events for free.

Donations help to cover the cost of Meetup subscription fees (as an organiser of events we have to pay), website hosting costs, prizes, publicity, and other admin fees.

Needless to say attendance is at own risk, no liabilities are accepted. Please be extra careful crossing roads, wear non-slip footwear, appropriate clothing for the weather, and look out for any specific health and safety information on the individual event pages.

Please do not race ahead of the walk leader as you could easily go off track and lose the group. (We wouldn't want that!)
