Healthy Lifestyle Centre

Community Teachsport CIC is a community interest company founded in October 2010, and developed to create activities and sports provision for children and families around Lewisham in South East London.

Community Teachsport CIC is linked to Teachsport , a body working within primary and secondary schools to make a difference to young people’s lives through sport – regardless of ethnicity, gender, age, or economic status. They believe that everyone has the right to experience sport in a safe and fun environment.

Over a period of three and a half years Community Teachsport CIC managed to acquire a derelict playing field in Lewisham through a community asset transfer from Lewisham Council.Through hard work and determination the Abbotshall Road Healthy Lifestyle Centre was opened in May 2015, transforming the space in to a centre that provides activities seven days a week, to everyone in the community, with classes for a wide age range – from toddlers to 90+ years old – creating a new resource to encourage the whole community to live healthy lifestyles. The centre is currently working in partnership with number of schools to encourage children to be active and have fun. The centre also hosts regular adult classes and community events.

Don't give up on Winter!

Winter with cold weather fronts, changes in atmospheric pressure and low temperature, is a time of increased illness and colds. The weather definitely affects our well-being and health. When it starts to be colder our physical activity decreases and thereby it increases apathy and loss of immunity. Don't give up the weather! Be active every single day! You don't have to do professional sport - you can just walk, but do it minimum 30 minutes a day.
To sustain your immunity eat a lot of vegetables and fruits which are rich in vitamins, minerals and dietary fiber. You should eat daily 5 portions of these products.
These simple rules will help you to keep health through all year:)

Active winter

There is nothing more beautiful than snow in winter! In Gdynia we can finally find white flue and it gives us a lot of attractions. Don’t look for excuses – it’s not so cold and snow is not so wet ;) Dress warmly, apply appropriate cream, take all family and friends, go outside and have fun!
You have no idea what to do?!
You can always sledge - try to do it with your child and see who will scream  louderJ Do you know that one hour of sledging and walking up will help you to burn about 400 calories!
If you have an ice rink in your neighbourhood don’t hesitate to go there. Even if you have small kid it is also a great way to spend time together. It's not easy to learn anybody ice skating especially when this person is a child. Don’t be discouraged by that fact. Today we have wide range of skates that will help your kid  keep balance. Be patient and let your child fall over and get upJ

Even if you don’t have a sledge or skates you can use just snow to be active. Make a snowman and lose about 235 calories, organize a snowball fight and see how wonderfull time you will have.

Don’t wait for another day – snow can melt till then :)
