If your fitness and lifestyle goals have been disrupted by the pandemic, WELLBEING SCORE ™, a new simple assessment tool developed by the Training Shed in St Ives, will help you get back on track. 

The past year has been one of uncertainty, constant change and adapting. 

Whether you have spent time building new health and fitness regimes, managed to stay in your regular routine or slipped into some bad habits, it is vital to understand how your ‘new normal’ lifestyle has affected you. This is particularly important as we move towards coming out of lockdown. 

Wellbeing can be defined as ‘living a healthy lifestyle,’ which can be affected by many factors – nutritional habits, health markers and your ability to move well. 

Enhancing and optimising your wellbeing has many benefits including, enhanced resistance and immunity to illness, reduced risk of disease, less aches, pains, improved mental wellbeing, more energy and better concentration.

Jemma Marriot, a happy Training Shed client said: “I did the WELLBEING SCORE ™ last April. With lockdown and gyms being closed I knew I wasn’t as active as I was before and I really wanted to lose weight for my wedding next year.

"I started to slowly introduce small changes like drinking more water and cutting down on fizzy drinks. This alongside more walking with my dog had me feeling so much better and I started to feel more comfortable in my clothes.

"It goes to show how the smallest lifestyle changes can make a huge difference, and I thank the guys at Training Shed for helping me identify those little things!” 

In partnership with One Leisure St Ives, Training Shed has a new Covid-19 safe membership for £35 per month and all classes are included.
