Rio Ferdinand’s DNAfit Academy

Join Rio as he shines the light on the issues surrounding health and wellness, in his home town, Peckham.

Rio, together with DNAfit, are ambassadors for taking a personalised approach to wellbeing, taking steps to prevent diseases wherever possible.

Creating a positive outlook for health

1 in 4 people will die from a preventable illness in the UK and, for the first time in a century, life expectancy rates in the UK have stopped increasing. Yet the help is in our own hands, and even in our own genes.

We returned with Rio to his old neighbourhood in Peckham, an area with one of the lowest life expectancies in the UK, to find out how his community view their personal health. Speaking to some of Rio’s oldest friends as well as local young people and parents, together we discover the role that understanding our DNA can play in in improving diet, fitness and fighting hereditary illness.

Do you know someone who needs to get ahead of their health?
