Has your doctor given you a green prescription?
The solution to improved health often lies not in medication, but in simple, small lifestyle changes – and that’s what Green Rx is all about. A green prescription means your doctor is empowering you to make the changes that will improve your health and give you a happier, better life.
Of course, we know that simple isn’t always the same as easy, so we’re here to help you. A number of our centres offer classes specially designed for Green Rx holders who are looking for low-cost physical activity and wellness programmes, in partnership with Sport Auckland in the south and Health West in the west. Programmes range from educational workshops to group fitness classes, aqua group fitness, supervised gym workouts and low-impact outdoor adventures.
