Sean Stated -
"I am so happy and proud to be honoured with a BCA, to be amongst so many positive people who are changing peoples lives will be unbelievable"
In a bid to reduce the growing incidence of childhood obesity in Wales, Sean started the School Team Fitness Challenge which involved conducting free-of-charge sessions for all primary schools in Wales. The aim is to help children realise that fitness can be fun and exciting whilst learning healthy tips that will change lives for the better. Sean does this voluntarily as his way of giving something back and this activity sits outside of his established business. These sessions have reached 88 schools in total so far, with over 4,000 pupils attending.
Sean has already conducted many sessions throughout South/Mid Wales and came up with the idea after completing some research with teachers from Pencoed Comprehensive and Palmerston Primary in Barry. The sessions themselves are educational, providing participants with healthy tips on fitness, diet and nutrition while working together in teams to overcome challenges both mentally and physically. Most importantly they teach young children life skills such as teamwork and communication, both of which are vital as the youngsters reach adolescence. Sean entirely self-funds these sessions and seeing a need for additional sessions, started Free Health & Well-being Sessions for all the Family, in Bridgend. This saw 12 sessions where all the family could train, bond and learn healthy living together completely free of charge. This was a huge success and over 30 families locally took part, with around 150 members in total.
The main driving force behind creating these free sessions is to try and slow down growing obesity levels in children around Wales and give them easy to follow tips that will improve their overall diet.
Sean is dedicated to improving the lives of children within his community further afield not just in Wales but in all schools.
