Physical activity counselling
Physical activity counselling is a free service intended for municipal residents who exercise a little or not at all. Its aim is to encourage and guide the customer towards a more physically active lifestyle. In addition to physical activity, attention is also paid to nutrition and sleep in the personal exercise counselling process. Physical activity counselling is intended for people of all ages. You can book an appointment for a child, a young person, an adult or a senior.
You can also receive exercise advice remotely or by phone. You can also be referred to counselling on the recommendation of nurses, doctors or well-being coaches or book an appointment for exercise counselling yourself.

Integrative exercise counselling
Physical activity counselling in simple Finnish or a foreign language helps with questions related to exercise, daily physical activity and sports hobbies if your native language is not Finnish. The service languages are Finnish and English. We also use interpreters for questions related to health-promoting exercise. Ask about the possibility of interpretation into your native language.
Adapted physical activity counselling
Adapted physical activity counselling is aimed at municipal residents whose exercise requires adaptation due to, for example, disability, illness or other weakened functional capacity. At physical activity counselling, we look for ways to adapt different sports to suit you.
