Running has been so good at maintaining my stamina and physical/mental health and being out in the fresh air is a definite plus. The countryside and areas that you run become place you notice and enjoy, so when you discover something this good the benefits need to be shared.

We joined to find out how to be healthy as a family, the information, recipes and teachers were very good. This is a fantastic and lifestyle changing club for young children.

After joining a well-balance class, I feel more confident doing stairs. I found the exercises were suitable to my problem of bad balance. The instructors were very friendly, dedicated and ready to give one to one support anytime I need it.

I just came to do shopping at Asda and saw the S4H van. The thing that surprised me was being able to have an NHS Health Check in a van, which was good as it was a drop-in session, with no need to book an appointment. I am 43 so I had started to think about my health more. Having an NHS Health Check made me realise that I am not that active, so I am going to join a gym.
