We all know that losing weight is often down to a healthier diet and more exercise, but very often life gets in the way. That’s why we’ve brought the two things together in the form of FREE weekly sessions that include 45 minutes of exercise and 45 minutes of nutritional advice, where you can learn more about eating healthily.

If you’re carrying excess weight it means you’re more likely to suffer medical conditions including Type 2 diabetes, Coronary heart disease and certain cancers, including breast and bowel.
