IMAGINE how much easier it would be to stick to a new lifestyle regime if you had someone to encourage you at every step…
Well that’s exactly what a specially trained group of health trainers are doing in your local area. They are not super-fit men and women clad from head to toe in lycra – instead they are people who understand how hard it can be to change the habits of a lifetime and they are there to help you make that first step to a different life.
Health trainers offer you the opportunity to work with them for a number of weeks or months. They will help you to set manageable health goals of your choice and support you to achieve them. This could include or encouraging you to be more active by walking, swimming or perhaps going to a gym, maybe even going with you on your chosen activity once or twice to help you settle in. You may wish to reduce your alcohol intake, give up smoking or socialise outside the home more, your Health Trainer can give you advice on all of these and make sure that you are put in touch with an appropriate health professional to help you achieve your goals.
Alternatively if it is just health information you want or some guidance on a range of health and community services available to you, your Health Trainer can help with this too.
If you are interested in making a lifestyle change, the Health Trainers are here to help you make that happen.
If you would like more information about the Health Trainer service, or would like to make an appointment with your local Health Trainer then please call 07887832799
