Fitness consultations are designed to help you find ways of starting to add activity into your lifestyle along with modifying other lifestyle behaviours. They are one-to-one consultations with one of our Health & Fitness Coaches who will advise you on getting started on your fitness journey and may involve some activity so you should wear appropriate clothing and footwear.
