Lukasz, soon-to-be Supply Chain Apprentice at the Council and self-titled 'Madonna’s biggest fan' has used BetterPoints to stay fit in a way that he enjoys, track his progress and rack up the points.
“I first heard about Move for Change from my colleague at Brighton & Hove City Council, who told me about it. I’ve worked there for over a year now and I’m still really enjoying it, and I’ll be starting my apprenticeship in the Supply Chain team soon.
I have absolutely changed the way I travel since joining BetterPoints and Move for Change. For my job, I sit at my desk most of my days, but I never really thought about walking there and back. Now I’m regularly walking into town. Outside of work, although I like to stay fit, I do everything possible to avoid exercising in the gym. However, as the app records my walks, they can replace workouts which helps me to maintain my fitness. My favourite route is a 3 mile loop along the seafront, from the King Alfred Leisure Centre down to the i360 and back.
Leaving the car at home just means so much less stress. Driving in Brighton is tough, there’s lots of hills and narrow roads which I no longer have to deal with as much.
My favourite thing about Move for Change is the inclusivity. It doesn’t matter your age, gender and beliefs, everyone can join. I also love collecting points for vouchers at Tesco and keeping close tabs on all my calories and progress. Some say I like to always be in control, but I just say that I’m passionate!
With the BetterPoints I do have, apart from getting Tesco vouchers from time to time, I really like collecting them just to see my balance increase. Bigger is better is what I’ve been taught! However, once I do decide to use them, I would probably donate them.”
Well done to Lukasz, who has won 5,000 BetterPoints by sharing their story.
