The health checks encompass: weight, BMI, Cholesterol, blood sugar, heart rate and blood pressure all attendees are supported with advice and guidance on the relevant changes that they can make to manage diet ,exercise or lifestyle.

We also offer acupuncture; deep relaxation and massage; as well time to visit one of our many stands from Unison; Dental; Finance advice; We have also been offering two-minute Skipping Challenge to highlight fitness levels, our champion skipper reigns with a respectable 317 skips.
