Today we are re-launching our famous One You Couch to 5K app in partnership with BBC Get Inspired - bringing back Laura (pictured above) as a trainer.

The One You Couch to 5k app has been designed to get you off the couch and running in just 9 weeks. There is now a choice of 5 trainers to support and motivate you every step of the way, telling you when to walk and when to run.

Laura, brought back by popular demand, has helped hundreds of thousands of people start their running journeys through the NHS Choices Podcast programme. Alongside Laura, there are also four celebrity trainers - Olympian Michael Johnson, comedians Sarah Millican and Sanjeev Kohli, and BBC presenter Jo Whiley.

The BBC will be promoting this heavily from today, and Public Health England will be supporting with activity on Facebook and through our One You and Start 4 Life channels. Please share the BBC video featuring Laura, and our One You activity on Twitter and Facebook.

With recent Sport Relief activity, the upcoming London marathon and spring on its way, now is a great opportunity to promote the One You Couch to 5k app in your areas.

The app can be downloaded by searching for ‘One You Couch to 5k’ in the Apple or Google Play stores.
