The programme combines weekly lifestyle and healthy eating workshops, with beginners physical activity sessions. Body Benefits focuses on easing you into exercise, at the right level. We will help you to understand your body and motivate you to take positive steps to improve your health through eating well and making easy lifestyle changes.  Our aim is to boost your confidence in an effort to help you achieve sustainable and realistic  weight loss.

In order that you benefit fully from the programme we recommend that you commit to do 2 – 3 Body Benefits exercise sessions per week. We offer a range of classes, offering something for everyone.  Alongside our beginners exercise classes; you can also access any Contours gym or swim facility.  We also offer swimming lessons, health walks, buggy boot camps, beginners run groups, walking football and walking netball.

As well as the exercise classes you will be required to attend a weekly lifestyle session offering straight forward lifestyle advice, nutritional advice and an opportunity for 1-2-1 appointments with our dietitian.

How it works

At the start of the programme our team uses the ‘In Body’ machine which, provides you with an individual print out accurately detailing your own body measurements from the inside out.  This tells you not just your body weight but your body fat muscle mass and the amount of water in your body.  The same processes will be carried out at the end of the programme;  providing you with a comparison report; giving you a clear and concise measure of your success. This is all carried out in a friendly and welcoming environment with everyone supporting each other.

Our specialised beginners classes, led by hand picked instructors;  are solely for Body Benefits participants. All classes are lower impact, shorter duration and less intense than mainstream classes. They are designed to be fun, ease you into physical activity the right way and build you up to become stronger and fitter.

Body Benefits is completely free of charge, but is worth £250.00 per person so we do require your commitment and determination; to make changes and see it through to the end successfully.
