Getting active step by step with Slimming World

Getting active step by step

Just as Slimming World’s Food Optimising will help you make easy changes to the way you shop, cook and eat, Body Magic – our unique activity programme – will help you take small steps towards a more active lifestyle.

No need for Lycra!

This isn’t about pushing yourself to the limits, getting up at 4am to go to the gym or running marathons (unless you want to of course!). We won’t ask you to join an exercise class at your group and you need never wear Lycra and there’s no judgement about how much or how little activity you do.

Whether you’re taking your first step or you already enjoy an active lifestyle you’ll get practical help to build up your activity in steady stages, find enjoyable activities for you and your family – and share your experiences with other members.

Start small and build up…

Small steps really do bring amazing results and whether you walk, cycle, swim, garden, dance or Wii, we’ll celebrate every step – be it small or large – with you, all the way towards a fitter, healthier, more active future!

Before joining her local group, Angela Verdon was on the sidelines of family life – just watching. Now she makes Body Magic part of her everyday life.


After two children and years of yo-yo dieting, I joined Slimming World determined to lose weight and keep it off for life. I added Body Magic into the mix during my third pregnancy. I got fit doing the school run and going for family walks at weekends. Now I’m 9st lighter! I can climb around the soft play centre and fit on rides at the amusement park without the fear of getting stuck!
