AW promotion: How a health assessment could help your running

Have you been one of the lucky few to receive a place this week for next year’s London Marathon through the ballot system? Perhaps you had already secured your spot or have just begun plotting out your big targets for 2019?

Whatever your next long-term running adventure, it’s wise to set off on the journey safe in the knowledge that you’re fit and ready for what awaits you on the training road ahead.

And that’s where Simplyhealth’s new Active Plan can be of real benefit to you. It might already feel like your body is in need of an MOT and getting checked over while being proactive about your health is certainly recommended before you start logging the miles in pursuit of your goals.

Getting a health assessment – a systems check to give you an overview of your current health – from a medical professional is just one of the many benefits included in the Active Plan, which is designed to help you realise those running ambitions.

How can a health assessment help you?

  • Take control through clear knowledge about your current health status
  • Identify future health risks
  • Indicate lifestyle changes to improve your health


What to expect during a health assessment

Carried out within one appointment, you will undergo tests including a minimum* of:

  • Measurement for body composition (BMI) and body fat percentage
  • Blood pressure measurement
  • Cholesterol or diabetes checks
  • Kidney or liver function test
    *further tests can be included

These will be carried out by a registered doctor, nurse or pharmacist at a registered establishment such as a hospital, GP Practice, pharmacy or health screening clinic.

From just £14 per month, Active Plan allows you to claim towards the costs of a health assessment. Active Plan also includes many more benefits such as physiotherapy and prescription sports glasses.
