Lockdown is Lifting: Reflecting on our year!

After what can only be described as the most unpredictable year in history, things are finally starting to look up! As restrictions are eased and life begins to creep back towards normality, we wanted to look back on what the exante community has achieved since the very first lockdown! 

March 2020 

As the pandemic struck, we wanted to say a huge thank you to our amazing Key Workers and Emergency Services for all their hard work. If you’re a key worker, check out this blog post to get extra discounts on your favourite exante products! 


April 2020 

As the UK settled into the first lockdown, the community pulled together by taking part in our ‘exan-TEA’ series. We’ve loved seeing you share your weight loss story over a cup of tea! Watch the latest exan-TEA video on our YouTube channel here.
