Happy October Locker readers! Where did that summer go?! With the days getting darker and that vitamin D diminishing, we know how you can boost your vitamin intake. We dedicate our October blog to World Vegetarian Day and will show you how to improve your health, boost your energy, and try out some tasty and vibrant veggie recipes by simply reducing your meat intake. You could even help save the environment and some pennies too!

A veggie diet is a great way to lower your cholesterol which is super important to us throughout October, since it is National Cholesterol Month. Check out our Beat Your Cholesterol blog to learn more about what it is, how to reduce it, and how our delicious Active Nutrition dishes can help. Maybe we can even inspire you to get creative with cooking all that leftover Halloween pumpkin!

Keeping active is one way to lower cholesterol and we have a fun new workout addition for you to try. Swing by our Benefits of Kettlebells blog to learn about twists, squats, and swings, and read up on why we think kettlebells are worth their weight! Make sure you also tune into our Facebook Live on Tuesday 3rd at 6pm to swot up on your kettlebell knowledge with our PT David.

We also are very proud to dedicate October to an incredible local hero, Engagement Coordinator within the Active Communities Team, Peter Hull. If you have not read his story, we encourage you to read this blog as Peter’s outlook and dedication to sport is an inspiration.
