Calling 35-50 year oldsAn exciting opportunity to take part in a ground breaking investigation into the power of exercise
exercise Halo Leisure has been selected from leisure operators across the UK to take part in a ground breaking investigation into health and wellbeing (in partnership with the University of Greenwich and the Fitness Industry Association). To gather data to support the research Halo is offering people across the county aged between 35-50 the opportunity to receive:- 3 FREE health checks worth a total of £500- Body composition analysis three times throughout the yearPeople who took part in this research previously and who acted on the support and motivation that can be available throughout the year, benefited from a decrease in their Blood Pressure, Resting Heart Rate, Cholesterol Level, Body Fat % and Body Mass Index (BMI); as well as improved Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Muscular Strength and Flexibility. “This really is a unique and exciting opportunity to be involved in research which has the sole aim of improving your health” said Mark Lewis, Halo Fitness Superviser. “You don’t have to be a Halo member to take part; neither do you have to be physical active. This is research into health and wellbeing not fitness, so you don’t have to be currently taking part in any type of exercise to participate. The only criteria are that you are 35-50 and can spare 1 ½ hours three times a year for us to carry out the health check. Tests will take place at Hereford Leisure Centre and will give you a fascinating insight into your lifestyle.” The first health checks will happen between 24 September-11 October. To find out more contact Mark Lewis, Rosie James or Alex Haines at Hereford Leisure Centre on 0300 012 1222 option 2.
