60 Years Old | Get Healthy participant
"Being able to make positive life changes, and being able to do that in front of friends and family has been important"
Joe joined the Get Healthy Service to change his lifestyle and get fitter.
Before starting the program, Joe spent his down time in front of the TV rather than being active, and wasn't giving much thought to healthy eating.
Now, Joe is focused on eating more fruit and vegetables and reducing his intake of alcohol.
"Being able to make positive life changes, and being able to do that in front of friends and family has been important."
Joe has enrolled in the Get Healthy program twice now, helping him to overcome a setback when he obtained a calf muscle injury which made it difficult for him to keep up with some of the lifestyle changes. Support and encouragement from Joe's dedicated health coach has helped him to stay on track with his goals of getting active and eating healthy.
"Being accountable to someone helped me focus on what I was doing."
