At FitAgain we are passionate about mental health and are highly trained in this area. Lucy is a mental health nurse and a trained mindfulness teacher for adults and children and also trained in a number of therapies. Andrew is a mental health first aider who works closely with Headlight, a local mental health charity for children and young people.
We recognise the importance of growing a strong body and a strong mind. It is now well recognised that exercise and good nutrition can help to prevent type 2 diabetes, some cancers, osteoporosis, heart disease, strokes and other preventable diseases. There is also very strong evidence that exercise can help reduce depression and anxiety and help improve our mental health in many ways. Research has shown that exercise can be as effective as an anti depressant which makes sense as it hard not to feel good about your self after a good session in the gym, in the pool or whatever your particular flavour of exercise is. However, although we already know about the benefits, what stops us from exercising on a regular basis and sustaining a healthy lifestyle?
FitAgain provide a truly holistic approach and give you tools to exercise your mind and body. On top of offering top quality personal training and exercise classes we also offer a wealth of services to assist you in building a growth mindset, build resilience, break unhealthy habits and if necessary help you to process any past demons that may be causing barriers to getting FitAgain.
