Session 1: Happy, Healthy Me
You find out who we are and we find out who you are! In this session we explore who you are as a person and what makes you tick. We look to find out what your goals and aspirations are plus what challenges you face. With this information we can tailor the sessions to ensure you get the most out of them.
Session 2: Behaviour, Community & Hurdles
In this session, we explore how our behaviours are influenced strongly by our lifestyle & vice versa. Understanding how we think can help us learn to avoid the many pitfalls that result in us straying from a new lifestyle intervention. Furthermore, we discuss the importance of joining a community like our free fitness club to help maintain motivation, gain confidence and overcome hurdles.
Session 3: Nutrition NOT Diet!
Food is not something to be feared. It is crucial for our survival and health. The right foods can help protect & improve our health while the wrong foods can have a substantial impact on your quality of life, energy levels & mood. In this session we explore your thoughts around nutrition & help debunk some myths while explaining why we can so often have an unhealthy attitude towards what we eat.
Session 4: Physical activity
Grab your trainers because in this session we explore the vital role physical activity plays in keeping us both physically & mentally healthy. Our trained UK athletic coaches will help identify an exercise program for you. You may feel that you are unable to undertake exercise due to physical or mental health barriers but there are often many different forms which can be done as long as you keep an open mind and are prepared to try something new. We try where weather allows to do the session outside and have as much fun as possible!
