Dr Gabriel Scally, Director of Public Health for NHS South of England said: “Now that the weather is warming up and our winter woollies can be thrown to the back of wardrobe it is the perfect time to get in shape. Think of this as an opportunity to spring clean your health and fitness routine as well as your home.
“Now that the evenings are lighter dust off your trainers and go for a brisk walk in the park after work. Or, dig out your old bike from the back of the garage and stop just talking about cycling to work.”
“It is all too easy to find an excuse not to exercise, let’s use International Fitness Week as an excuse to exercise.”
