Move Your Body
Movement is a key contributor to our mental wellbeing, by participating in regular physical activity you release endorphins (the happy hormone) which has a direct effect on the way we feel. Experts recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of physical activity every day and through our sweat sessions we’ll show you an array of activities that will help you enjoy getting moving.
