I was referred to the scheme by my GP after a routine health check after being identified as having high cholesterol, being overweight and basically not doing enough exercise.
I found the sessions very helpful, delivered in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. This week will be my last session, though I can still look forward to the weekly weigh in sessions which will still serve to keep me motivated. Over the 12 weeks I have learnt a lot and by following the guidelines set out I have not only achieved my 5% goal, I am close to the 10% mark.
I did this course alongside regular gym sessions, with workouts tailored to my individual needs by the helpful gym staff.
So by being aware of what I'm eating, alongside regular exercise, I've seen some positive benefits to my appearance and general well being, which have also been noticed by family and friends.
I can't thank the staff involved enough and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the course to anyone looking to improve their life
