How does it work

We offer a 12-week face to face or virtual group programme. Each session includes a one-hour informative nutrition workshop with one of our Health Practitioners plus 30 minutes of physical activity with a qualified instructor (face to face only).

"The virtual meetings and the option to have my camera off was really beneficial. I am quite anxious about being judged so found the anonymity really comforting."
