I mean, I'm not afraid of heights, but I might be today.
We are all aiming for personal bests in life.
But whether you are aiming to become a Paralympic athlete, or getting fit in your fifties, there's always certain things you need to succeed.
But more importantly, the strength of a brilliant team behind you.
Two people have very different goals, but share a burning desire to take control of their physical and mental wellbeing over the next year.
and we're here to support and cheer them on.
Hi, I'm Richard Whitehead Paralympic gold medalist.
Together Bupa and ParalympicsGB are on a mission to make health a team sport for us all.
Welcome to Team Health.
My name is Emmanuel Oyinbo-Coker.
I'm a para-athlete And I also mentor kids at primary schools.
I had a setback, so I didn't qualify for the Tokyo Games.
This year I need to qualify for the Paris 2024 Games and come back with a gold medal.
My health is important to me because staying in shape is the key to achieving success in my sport.
My biggest supporters are my mum, Olu, and my younger brother, Ayomide.
My name is Julie Vivash.
I'm a financial administrator at a Bupa Care Home.
My big goal is to get fit, to get healthier, to get my BMI down.
I want to do this now because I've always done things for other people and I think this is my time.
My biggest supporters are my husband, my family, my children, and my best friend, Louise.
It's good to meet you.
I’m always a big fan of new challenges.
A little bit, you know, you've always got to have a little bit of that scared feeling, because you don’t know what to expect.
I'm anxious, but I'm going to love it.
Whatever we do, I'm going to love it.
The aim is as long as we both finish the challenge together.
That's the most important thing.
I'll help you if you help me.
I reckon it’s that.
What have we signed up for?
That's pretty awesome.
Are you a hugger?
I'm a hugger.
Emmanuel, you’re definitely a hugger.
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Welcome to the O2.
What are your first thoughts?
It's beautiful, actually.
So today we're going to take on challenge, and this is going to be the start of your Team Health journey.
We're going to be going over to base camp and we're going to be climbing the O2.
Oh, my god.
Oh, this is steep.
This isn't going to be easy, but I'm not going to quit.
