Story

Life Guards is a healthy heart programme that aims to help Children and young people learn how to look after the physical and mental health. So far the Life Guards team has run a schools programme in 44 schools with over 6000 kids taking part. In the way that lifeguards have the skills to save other people’s lives, the Life Guards programme aims to teach children and young people the skills to save their own lives by looking after their diet and making sure that they are getting enough exercise. The Life Guards team also run a kids and youth gym. This is a time where kids and young people get to have fun, use kids specific gym equipment and have circuits run that are tailored to fit the needs of different age groups.
