REBOOT YOURLifestyle

Small steps make a big difference

Step into Health is a FREE* health boosting, 13 week programme made up of three core elements which will help transform your body and mind.

Provided by experts at Loughborough College, the UK’s leading sports college, Step into Health is a distance learning course which means you can ‘study’ when and where it suits you.

We will provide you with a course manual and three workbooks which you can complete either online or as a paper copy. The workbooks check that you have understood the content of each unit whilst also allowing you to consider your current lifestyle. Completion of all three workbooks enables you to pass the course and achieve an Entry Level Three Aim Award qualification.

You will be assigned your own tutor who will take every step with you and support you throughout.

* Subject to funding criteria.
