September 10th to 16th
Personal Touch Fitness are proud to be supporting Know Your Numbers Week at our sites this September. We will be encouraging employees to get their blood pressure checked. Our trained, expert teams will be there to offer advice, information and free lo-salt samples.
High blood pressure or hypertension affects about 1/3 of the adult population. Unfortunately, it rarely has symptoms with many people not even realising they are at risk.
Untreated hypertension increases the risk of stroke, heart disease, renal disease and dementia. Thousands of people die in the UK each year from heart disease or stroke which could have been prevented had their blood pressure been well controlled.
Don’t be a risk taker – get checked out during our Know Your Numbers promotion.
