STRESS MANAGEMENT - exercise releases cortisol which helps us manage stress.
HEAD SPACE - focusing on exercise can become a positive coping strategy.
SELF ESTEEM - Progression and achieving golas and create better self-esteem.
REDUCE DEPRESSION - Doing regular physical activity can help reduce the likelihood of periods of depression.

In June this year we ran a MGW workshop with Chevy Rough. He talked about the tools you need to keep moving, not only in the gym, but through life. He delved into the two way relationship between physiology and psychology. We received some fantastic feedback from this event and we will be looking to do more in the future.
