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.

I joined Eat4Health because I needed to lose weight and needed support to do so. I have tried other weight loss programmes in the past which would normally begin well but they never really taught me to change and do exercise they just told me what to eat and what not to eat but not why. I eat more fruit and vegetables and am more aware of my calorie intake and the need for physical activity. My blood pressure has lowered along with my BMI. I would recommend this service to others to make changes for life not just a few months.

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.
