Free health sessions will benefit from specialist scales

Comments 0

People living Brighton and Hove are being encouraged to take advantage of free health sessions Albion in the Community is running in the city.

As part of an on-going project to tackle local health inequalities the charity has started a wave of activities offering people free access to exercise groups, expert nutrition advice, free football, cooking on a budget courses, and stop smoking support.

A new eight-week weight loss group got underway this week, running on Wednesday afternoons in Moulsecoomb and the weekly weigh-ins have been boosted by the generous donation of a specialist set of body composition scales by Marsden, a leading manufacturer which provides expert equipment to the NHS and medical industry.

The scales will provide a range of incredibly accurate readings and allow the charity’s health coaches to better advise people on what lifestyle changes they need to make to lose weight in a healthy way.

There is still time to sign up for the weight loss group and Albion in the Community is also offering a men’s health and fitness group in Moulsecoomb, a women’s group in Bevendean and a weekly fitness session for parents and their pre-school children.
