But you don’t need a crystal ball, or FaceApp, to know how to be in the best health in your later years. The Vitality Health programme provides the tools and support you need to improve your health by encouraging you to do your relevant health checks, eat healthier and get active. Plus, it offers great incentives to motivate you all the way.

Then, you can better understand how your body works and what you need to do to take care of it. With regular health checks, you’ll be empowered with the knowledge and necessary next steps to take control of your health and enjoy a healthier future. While an aging app gives you a surprise picture of yourself, doing a Vitality Health Check means you are actually in control of your future, if you adjust your lifestyle.
