Congratulations to our next Move More Hero!
Richard lives near Hanworth Park and discovered the BetterPoints app earlier this year. He enjoys the wide range of activities he can record, especially the Move More at the Gym reward by going to Hanworth Leisure Centre (part of the many Lampton Leisure sites in the Borough).
Here is what he said about the benefits of taking part in the BetterPoints Hounslow challenge.
"My active habits before I used the BetterPoints app were poor, not much exercise and I had a poor diet. I would never exercise, cycle or swim, only going for a short walk to go out shopping occasionally.
I found out about the BetterPoints Hounslow challenge through a friend who introduced me to BetterPoints. I chose to get involved to improve my fitness and lifestyle.
Since using the app my habits have changed so much. I am being more active with swimming, walking and cycling. I try to eat healthy as much as I can and take exercise more seriously for my health issues.
The features I find helpful since using the app are monitoring the various different activities on my phone so I can keep a close eye on the time on the different exercises (walking, cycling, swimming etc). I can manage my weight better, lower cholesterol and reduce the chance of heart disease.
The app offers me choices on improving my lifestyle. It has increased my overall level of activity. I am fitter, stronger and healthier.
Since being more active I have noticed improved mental health - I'm thinking more positively about my life. I am managing my weight better: I have lost a few pounds. I am physically stronger with better photos to prove it."
Great work Richard!
