2 Referrals to Everyone Active
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.

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.

This has had an impact on my son’s learning, but also on his behaviour as well as he does not get frustrated all the time. I have also realised the food we ate did not help as we had takeaway on most nights, but now I cook fresh meals which has had health benefits for both me and my child as we are starting to lose weight.
