The Department of Health?s Change4Life and ThinQ Fitness (a digital TV company) are giving away a free month of online fitness videos to promote family health.
With limited household budgets many families are unable to achieve improved health through local fitness services. Change 4 Life partnered with ThinQ Fitness earlier this year to address this by offering a professional exercise site, with inexpensive subscription fees, to families with limited cash or access to gym facilities.
The content aims to get families together for regular exercise and users can comment on how they are getting on by using the comments section at the bottom of the web page. There is also a section in the forum where children and families can get their Change4Life questions answered.
Available online at www.thinqfitness.com, the videos are aimed at celebrating health for men, women and children to help impact the health-related issues of obesity and heart disease linked with inactivity and poor diet.
The workouts are focussed on ge and gender and include a high BMI programme, including inexpensive ways for families to exercise together and an ?Eat Slim Lunchbox? for parents.
Change 4 Life are offering the free content as part of ThinQ Fitness channel, which offers online interactive fitness content and ?one-stop? gym resources using the latest online video technology. Users can use their PCs or laptops or connect them to their TVs, to interact with workout presenters on sessions including fat loss, step, yoga, pilates, pre/postnatal, and gym, holistic or dance.
The channel also allows interaction with other members and offers healthy lifestyle news and articles plus access to social networking features, giving users a single location for all their fitness needs.
