There will be the chance to take part in a number of physical fitness tests for the team to identify individuals’ fitness levels. This includes looking at flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, strength, balance and coordination.

The MOT only takes 20 minutes and residents can just turn up to the sessions.

There will also be the opportunity to get blood pressure checked and receive lifestyle advice.

Councillor Carl Sherwood, cabinet member for Customer Services, Sport, Leisure and Culture, said: “The fitness MOT sessions are a great way of identifying how fit you are and finding out what you can do to improve your fitness levels. It will only take a short amount of time and could help you identify if you need to make any lifestyle changes. You don’t need to book an appointment; just pop along to one of the sessions.”
