tmactive150 Family Challenge

 

#mytmactivefamily

For our 2019 'tmactive150 Challenge', we are working with a lovely family of four- Alex, Sharonne, Noah and Delilah.

The 'tmactive150 Challenge' is a four-month guided programme, that offers both physical activity and nutrition advice.

The family were chosen for their keen interest and motivation to make positive changes to their lifestyles.

Over the next few months, the Health, Fitness and Wellbeing team at tmactive will be supporting the family to help them become more physically active as a family. Most importantly, we will be ensuring that the programme is sustainable, good fun, rewarding and fits into their busy schedule. We will be sharing their journey with you too!

This page will outline how the family are getting on through-out the four month-period, with the hope to inspire others to value physical activity and the positive effects it can have on our health and wellbeing.

So why are we doing the Challenge? Because there really are so many reasons to be more active and being active as a family is a great way to spend time all together.

Moving more is good for your body, your mind, helps to prevent serious health problems and it can help you sleep better too.

As well as lowering your risk of developing serious health problems, being active helps keep your heart healthy, keeps your muscles, bones and joints strong and can help improve your balance.

Research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood and energy, and helps you to maintain a healthy weight and good circulation.

Particularly in children, physical activity – whether it is walking, running, climbing, jumping or dancing, helps their muscles, bones and brains develop. And all sorts of activity counts, whether it's indoors or outdoors. It's just about getting moving every day.

The family will be beginning their journey on Friday 1 March 2019 and we are very excited to see what the next four months brings!

We look forward to updating you very soon....

Session 1 

Alex has already shown HUGE commitment to the programme and enjoyed his first personal training session last week. With much thanks to Larkfield Leisure Centre's Health and Fitness Manager Mike, Alex said his body is 'feeling it a bit', but he has (and I quote) admitted to feeling 'much more lively after exercise'. So much so, Alex has already booked his next PT session, took part in THE TRIP cycle workout and enjoyed family yoga with Sharonne and their children at the weekend. Go Alex!
