What to expect

Motivation and Movement is a free 6 week course that will look to boost your motivation, improve your mood, and increase your fitness.

We will explore how the way that you think, the way that you feel physically and emotionally, as well as the things that you do, are all linked and can impact on how you feel. We will do this using an approach called Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

Each week we will spend 45 minutes exploring a different CBT tool or technique which has been shown to improve mood and boost motivation. You will be encouraged to complete small homework tasks each week to begin reflecting on and implementing these tools into your day-to-day life for maximum benefit.

This will be completed alongside a 45 minute full body exercise session. You do not need to be a regular gym goer or exerciser already to attend as all levels of fitness will be catered for. This course is great whether you are looking to kickstart your fitness journey or need a little more accountability to keep consistent.

There is abundant research which shows that movement has a positive impact on well-being and can reduce feelings of low mood and anxiety. By engaging in CBT alongside structured exercise, you can gain benefit from both.
