Lancashire Care’s Fit Squad will be performing health checks throughout January to encourage people to live a healthier lifestyle.
Jenny Broom, the Fit Squad’s healthy lifestyle advisor, said: “We will be out and about throughout the month performing health checks and chatting to people about their lifestyle and health and simple things they can do to improve it.
“Changing the way you live can often seem daunting which is why it’s so important to recognise that even the smallest of small steps can go a long way when it comes to improving health.
“A healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular physical activity is the best way to stay in shape or lose weight. It’s all about balance and ensuring that your calorie intake is not greater than the calories that you use throughout the day.”
