Healthy Lifestyles (HLS) Coventry is a FREE service supporting clients to improve their lifestyle through weight management, stopping smoking, alcohol reduction, increasing physical activity and taking NHS health checks.
The HLS coaches work with their clients on a one-to-one basis or in groups, with appointments every 1-3 weeks, across a 12-week programme. In between these appointments many clients need extra support to keep them on track to achieve their goals.
The Best-You platform and app also enables groups to be created.
Many clients who are active in a coach-led group programme, also have peer and coach support via the digital group.
