Move More People

Moving More has improved the lives of hundreds of people in Sheffield…
either through exercise or referral or just through everyday movement.
Here are a few examples from people in Sheffield.

Yvonne, 71 from Chapeltown

"I have always enjoyed exercise so when I suffered the heart attack last year, I thought that was it.

But just over six months on and I’m able to work out three times a week, which is incredible!

The [Move More] Exercise Referral Scheme has been brilliant, everyone is so friendly and supportive and there’s a real social atmosphere.”

Charlotte, 28 from Fox Hill

"About six years ago, I was going through a tough time at home and at work, so I turned to exercise to give me some control during the difficult period.

I was 12 and a half stone and felt unhealthy in my body and mind. I started visiting the gym and quickly began losing weight. I felt confident and more positive and I even got a promotion at work.”

Derek, 66 from Shiregreen

“Exercise has made such a difference to my life. I feel so much better, more active, and I’ve even lost weight as a result.

Seven per cent of people in Sheffield suffer from diabetes, and I fully recommend that people in a similar situation to me take part in SIV’s* scheme.”

*SIV runs an exercise referral scheme with NHS Sheffield.
