"I find FitLine great for motivating me when I start to slack off from exercising. It gives me a shot in the arm to get going again" Charlie - Dublin

Go for Life FitLine is modelled on 'Active Choices', a telephone support project developed by Stanford University in the US. 'Active Choices' is based on twenty years of research evidence about telephone based physical activity support. FitLine is also modelled on elements of the National Smokers' Quitline and the Senior Helpline.
