Christina McKelvie, SNP MSP for Hamilton Larkhall and Stonehouse said:

“Covid has made it really hard to try and stay healthly, especially with gyms closing and shops being short on supplies.

“Having a new year’s resolution and sticking to it can be very difficult for everyone, which is why this programme was designed to focus on long term behaviour changes which then make a positive difference to our lifestyle.

“There is lots of evidence showing that being active and eating well affects both mental and physical health. This is a free programme and for those who are considering making positive changes, this support will be massively helpful.”
