Each year over 250,000 adults in the UK have a free blood pressure check during Know your Numbers! Week. Participating in our award-winning event is a great way for those working in fitness and leisure to:

  • Re-enforce the health benefits of being fit and active
  • Attract potential customers to your gym, health club or leisure centre 
  • Place your organisation as the focal point of the community
  • Improve staff knowledge and awareness of high blood pressure.

You can raise the profile of your health club, leisure centre or gym by running/hosting a Pressure Station offering free blood pressure checks:

  • Your organisation will feature on our 'find your nearest' Pressure Station website search facility
  • Name of your organisation will feature as a 'participator' on our website
  • We provide template news releases and promotional tips to help your health club/gym/leisure centre generate local publicity
  • You will also benefit from participating in a national campaign that attracts a total media circulation of 65 million.

This year we increased the number of blood pressures taken by 31%. We also found that on the whole the percentage with high bp was less than the previous year. This suggests that by raising awareness more people are taking steps to live healthier lifestyles
