Change4Life 10 Minute Shake ups

On Monday 17th July, Change4Life is launching a national 10 Minute Shake Ups programme with Disney, Sport England and schools to help get the nation’s children active.

One You Hounslow will be at St Dunstan’s Park Playground, St Dunstans Road, Feltham, TW13 4JY from 2pm to 5pm on Monday 17th July at the Active Spaces workshop with a 10 minute shake up for kids to help launch the campaign!

One You Hounslow will also be at the Active Spaces workshop at Carville Hall Park North Playground, Clayponds Ave (North of A4) TW8 9RB from 2pm to 5pm on Wednesday 19th July with another 10 minute shake up for kids to enjoy.

The 10 Minute Shake Ups from Change4Life with Disney are back this summer for families to take part in together. New Shake Ups will be released each week over the summer holidays with games, featuring characters from Disney Pixar’s latest animation Cars 3, as well as Disney’s Moana, Frozen Fever, Zootropolis, Beauty and the Beast and The Lodge. New for this year, the 10 Minute Shake Ups will focus on core skills such as running, jumping, throwing, catching and balance and can be completed throughout the day. The 10 Minute Shake Ups with Disney also aim to inspire longer term activity among children, promoting healthy habits all year round.

Every 10 minute burst of exercise can make a real difference in helping children reach the 60 minutes they need each day. Search ‘10 Minute Shake Ups’ online to find lots of exciting Disney inspired 10 Minute Shake Up games and make this a non-stop summer of fun and activity.

Councillor Kamaljit Kaur, Cabinet Member for Public Health, Adult Social Care, Health Services, Hounslow Council, said: 

“We’re delighted to be part of an exciting project like this. The summer holidays can seem really long but there are lots of great ideas to get children up and about with the new 10 Minute Shake Ups”

She said: “Lots of children love Disney characters and I am sure this will help motivate and encourage them to take part in some form of exercise over the holidays with much enthusiasm.”

Dr Talac Mahmud, a local GP in Hounslow said:

“Summer holidays can prove difficult to keep children entertained. Why not have a go at some of these fun team games to keep children entertained and active, based on Disney movies. Families can create a healthy routine that works around their busy working and school lives, with habits that will benefit them all. As a local GP, I cannot stress the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle enough and along with my CCG colleagues, fully support this campaign.”
