Whatever your running goal, your route to the finish line will require more than just miles. Training smart and looking after your body is vital but sometimes that’s not enough when it comes to your health. Simplyhealth’s Active Plan is fitness cover which helps you get access to healthcare specialists in your chosen sport – including physiotherapy and sports massage by a physiotherapist, acupuncture and podiatry.

If you take a closer look, you’ll see a number of distinct differences which make Active Plan perfectly tailored to someone looking to stay motivated, train harder and achieve more.

» One affordable price, regardless of your age and lifestyle
» Existing injuries and conditions are covered at no extra cost

Debbie’s story

“One of the main reasons I became a customer seven years ago is because I had plantar fasciitis (heel pain caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch) along with some other niggling injuries.

“Since then, I’ve run the London Marathon every year. My plan definitely helps me to keep on track. Running long distances, I visit a chiropractor and physiotherapist to iron out any problems so I’m in tip top condition and also afterwards to help with my recovery. I’m so lucky that my plan helps me afford to keep myself in better condition and stay healthy. There’s so many aspects that work for me.

“I’d definitely recommend Simplyhealth – anyone can use it but it’s particularly great for anyone active. It helps you to look after your health and access the healthcare you need quickly when you need it most – you can’t put a price on that.”
