What people think…

“I’ve really enjoyed all of the modules and felt there was a good level of information. I particularly enjoyed the ‘habits’ and ‘it’s not just what’s on your plate’ modules. I found the health tracker really motivating and felt supported with my sessions”

“It’s great that the app is digital, it feels there is a stigma for men going to weight management classes, and this gives an anonymous option without the stigma”

“I have loved the programme. I’ve found it very motivating and have enjoyed the modules, the app and the calls with various coaches”
