January 2018 This service is now provided by Somerset County Council
Zing Health Trainers which aims to support to make a change in your lifestyle. We help people to take a holistic approach to their wellbeing and by encouraging and supporting individuals to make small changes and achieve a lasting difference that will support them in their aims for a healthier lifestyle/ improvement in wellbeing.
Zing Health Trainers are qualified health professionals, supporting people with healthy eating, weight management, increasing physical activity, managing stress and sensible drinking. Zing Health Trainers have time to listen, and through helping individuals in creating their own personal health plan, they support people to take control of their goals for a healthier lifestyle.
Zing Health Trainers are a great source of local information, motivation and support. They are also able to signpost you to other initiatives and services. By making small sustainable changes what once seemed difficult to achieve, they can become manageable and possible.
As well as one to one support, Zing Health Trainers are offering Adult Weight Management Groups. These short 12 week courses around healthy eating and increasing activity and wellbeing provide a great start to making a change in your lifestyle.
Somerset Sport Activity Partnership (SASP) and Somerset Community Food, are encouraging families and communities to get healthier together through programmes such as, Full of Beans, Playing out, Get Set Cook or Get set Grow and Golden Age Olympics to name a few. These sessions provides opportunities for families or groups to do things together in an interactive way that makes living a healthier lifestyle fun.
