What a great opportunity to chat to Dr Hussain Al-Zubaidi. You’ll probably recognise Dr Hussain from the Channel 4 show Steph’s Packed Lunch or through his many ambassador roles.
We got to chat to Dr Hussain about the recent research on isometrics lowering blood pressure and how you can begin to engage more with the NHS. We chat about initiatives that can get more people active including Doing Our Bit, the free fitness platform provided by leisure industry partners for NHS workers.
As Hussain says ‘no one ever regrets doing some exercise’. We fit pros know that – and Hussain wants to cascade this message to all his NHS and social care colleagues. Take a listen now!
