It’s the time of year when we all think about getting healthier, fitter and more in shape.
And City of York Council can help with that.
It’s health trainer service supports residents with free confidential health and wellbeing one-to-one guidance on the following:
- healthy eating advice and weight management
- finding new ways to be more active
- quitting smoking
- reducing alcohol intake
- helping people find groups and activities to get back out in the community.
A qualified health trainer will then develop personal health plans either virtually, over the phone or face-to-face, when restrictions allow.
For people with a BMI over 30, the council is working with Slimming World to offer a free 12-week weight management programme.
To help make positive changes to diets and lifestyles and reduce risks of future health problems. To start the registration for the free 12-week referral, go here.
Executive member for health Cllr Carol Runciman said the health training service had already helped hundreds of residents. “We want to help you make positive lifestyle changes, and there is no better time to take the first steps than in the New Year.”
