When life gives you lemons, take them! Free stuff is cool.

But, what’s even better than free fruit? A FREE wellness programme that can help you live your best life!

Best of all, as a Bestmed member, you already have access to it – it’s called the Tempo wellness programme and it’s the seamless support system that fits perfectly into your life.

What is Tempo?

Tempo is Bestmed’s wellness programme that gives you the tools you need to live your best life. No points systems, no tiers. Just the benefits you need to enable you to be who you want to be.

Tempo – How to get started

The first and most important step on your Tempo journey is your Health Assessment (HA). It’s your starting point, and honest overview of where you are to help you determine where you’d like to be.

The HA is intended for beneficiaries 16 years and older, and includes: the Bestmed Tempo lifestyle questionnaire, a blood pressure check, cholesterol check, glucose check, as well as a height, weight and circumference check.

To do your HA, just print it*, fill it out, and take it to your nearest Dis-Chem, Clicks, or Van Heerden Pharmacy with a clinic OR to a Tempo biokineticist who can complete your HA.

Once you’ve received your HA report, you can get started on your selected Tempo Journey. You can start with either the Fitness Journey or the Nutrition Journey. While you need to select one of these two to get started, they aren’t mutually exclusive, so you can undertake both at the same time.

*If you can’t print the HA form to fill it in, the nurse can also complete the HA for you via the Provider Portal available on the Bestmed website.

What you get with Tempo
