“When we think of young people’s health, we think of schools being a key space for engagement, for adults the workplace is a similar space”- Dr Justin Varney, Public Health England Programme Lead for Health and Work.

Pedometer Feedback

"The pedometer challenge was excellent for pushing me out of the door to exercise on rainy windy nights when I would otherwise have stayed in; it was a great way to get into regular exercise whilst ignoring the blisters on my feet." - David Salter, Financial Controller, Coastline Housing Ltd
