"My son has made positive changes with the valuable help of Time4Sport. Many months after he is now at a healthy weight, engaging in more active play and is eating a lot healthier, especially at snack times."
Monika Szkopek (Mother) & 10 year old son, Bartlomiej Szkope, Stafford
"I went to see Time4Sport after being informed my son was classed as over weight by a school letter after having his height and weight measured. The team assessed our current food and exercises habits and set a number of progressive goals to work on. With the additional resources/guidance around each goal we really managed to turn my son's weight around and we were actually discharged after 12 weeks. The team were always at the end of the phone or email if we required extra support - it really helped and gave us so much motivation, information and guidance."
Kirsty Byrne (Mother) & 11 year old son, Louie Hakeem Ambri-Byrne, Burton Upon Trent
Time4Sport were introduced to me by the school nurse as Kodi was measured and was over weight. The Time4Sport team have been fantastic from day one, helping me understand sugar and fat content, healthy breakfasts, etc. I’ve had a number of face to face meetings with the team where they have always been polite, professional and very helpful. Kodi is under CAMHS for behavior issues and the team always took time to explain to her why we need to keep fit and healthy. They encouraged us to go on walks and adventures which helped me and Kodi bond more, rather than sitting around at home. We have had so much support from the team, even during lockdown with video calls and Facebook videos to follow. I’ve learnt a lot, not just for Kodi but for me too. I feel confident in self-managing our diet/lifestyle.
