Welcome to the Your Personal Best website. Your Personal Best is a national awareness campaign developed and funded by GSK, who were the official laboratory services provider for London 2012, in association with NHS London. It aims to inspire the 7.78 million people over 55 with long term health conditions in the UK to lead a more active lifestyle.
Keeping active can be a challenge if you have a long term health condition, but it can make a significant difference to your health and wellbeing and may also ease your symptoms.
If you feel like your condition is holding you back from leading a more active lifestyle and you are over 55 years old, then the Your Personal Best campaign, inspired by the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games, is here to help you with simple advice on how to become more active.
Supported by ten patient and healthcare professional groups across the UK, the campaign encourages everyone aged over 55 with long term health conditions to set personal and realistic activity goals in order to lead a more active lifestyle and help you to achieve your personal best.
This site offers a range of tips and helpful advice on how you can achieve this, from a question and answer section with our experts to real life stories to advice on how to get active and stay active - plus set your own personal activity goals by clicking through to our online activity tracker. Visit the Getting active page to find out more.
Your Personal Best was developed in line with the Department of Health's Let's Get Moving activity care pathway, aimed at embedding the promotion of physical activity within primary care
