New health checks
We are excited to now offer two new health checks:
- Healthy Heart Check (link to attached poster)
- Mini Health Check. The Mini Health Check was designed for those undertaking the Halton Health Check Challenge. "Getting a health check is pretty daunting to most people... 'The truth hurts' and all that! But once you get your head round it and see it as a mode of motivation to improve yourself - it's actually ok. You may actually be pleasantly surprised by some of the data collected! The realisation of the areas you need help in - be it weight-loss, fitness, nutrition etc, is an eye-opener & you may feel overwhelmed but Gemma can work with you to offer fantastic, in-depth advice & support you need to achieve your goals" Jo Euston-Moore, Halton Health Check Challenge participant and tennis member.
- Golf Specific Health Check. If you want to stay fit, healthy and decrease your risk of injury so you can enjoy and improve your golf, then the golf health check is for you. In recent years golfers of any standard have realised the importance of health and fitness to their golf performance. Recently Rory McIlroy has been championing the importance of taking care of your health and fitness:
"It was really in middle of 2010/end of 2010 where I realised that this (back problem) isn't going to get any better unless I start taking care of myself better, so getting in the gym and eating better. I think from the start of 2011 the direct correlation between leading a healthier lifestyle and my performance on the course was clear. I won my first major in 2011, I got the best world ranking I have ever been in 2011 and it just continued from there. So I definitely feel the more I got into exercise and fitness and everything, the better my game become." Rory McIlroy 18/2/16, Sky sports News
The golf health check is a great place to start!
We will soon be launching sport specific health checks for tennis, golf, swimming and cycling. Watch this space!
