Derbyshire nurse Navjeet Bahra has discovered the joys of getting active thanks to our free online exercise offer.
Navjeet, aged 27, started with our free physical activity sessions in January and is already feeling the benefits.
She said: “I have lost weight and considerably improved my fitness and stamina. I feel fitter and look forward to my weekly session with Andrea.
“It has also been lovely to speak to new people who are going on similar journeys to me and that allows us to chat and motivate each other by having some healthy competition in classes.”
Navjeet heard about Live Life Better Derbyshire through her work as a Community Staff Nurse and decided to give it a go.
We offer free online physical activity sessions that cater to a wide range of abilities. The sessions are led by our experienced health improvement advisors.
Navjeet said: “Andrea has been absolutely fantastic, she does not make you feel silly or put pressure on you, and she lets you go at your own pace.
“I’ve learned that physical activity is now not a gruelling task but something I look forward to - it is something manageable to incorporate into your daily activity.”
Navjeet has now been motivated to do even more exercise and in addition to Andrea’s weekly activity session she now squeezes in at least 2 other forms of exercise each week whether that’s running, skipping or indoor biking.
Navjeet is full of praise for the service, the support she receives and her energetic advisor Andrea.
“I cannot fault Andrea at all - her positive energy, motivation and her passion for us to see us do well has just been incredible and what I’ve needed to push myself. She always has a smile on her face and makes sessions humorous and not too serious.
“Pluck that courage up and join for a positive change - you will only gain benefits to your life by putting in what you want to get out of it.”
