Eating Disorders Awareness Week 2019

There are around 1.25 million people living in the UK with some form of eating disorder, including cases seen in children as young as six years old.

25th February 2019 marked the start of Eating Disorders Awareness Week, and this year’s theme was “Come as You Are” – which highlights greater inclusivity and body acceptance. As ‘The People’s Gym’, we want to continue channeling that inclusivity and support our members with their health & fitness goals.

We encouraged everyone at Xercise4Less to get involved and show their support during the awareness week.
