Find your fitness class
Digital makes life easier, giving time-poor people quick solutions. We’re interested to hear about this great new fitness class finder, from reputable body, EMD. The UK directory lists 40,000 classes, covering all types of fitness classes, with categories including, lose weight, de-stress, over 60s and beginners. If you run a class make it easy for clients to find you.
Just a small amount of exercise will make a difference
The UK Chief Medical Officers have updated the Physical Activity guidelines to encourage adults of all abilities to undertake a small amount of activity, in small chunks, throughout the day.
The change to the guidelines could make doing the required 150 minutes of activity much more achievable for more people. What do you think? Will it change how you advise your clients?

To tackle the issue and help fight preventable diseases associated with high blood pressure, the charity Blood Pressure UK launched their Know Your Numbers campaign this week (9th to 15th September) providing free testing around the country.
