UofG Sport Active Lifestyle Programme

By CGordon 01 Apr 2021

UofG Sport have launched their Active Lifestyle Wellbeing Programme offering six-week blocks of free 1-2-1 coaching sessions to introduce beginners to physical activity. 

Why should I be more active?

  • Exercise / Physical Activity helps to keep our mind and bodies healthy. When we take part in some form
    of activity, endorphins are released into our bodies; these are powerful chemicals in the brain that energise you and help you feel good

  • Regular activity is key to developing strength, coordination and body composition

  • Regular structured activity that you enjoy assists you achieving goals giving you a sense of purpose

  • Participating in physical activities offers many opportunities. It can be a great way to meet new people or it can give you the opportunity to find some quiet time out from everyday life

  • Leading an active life can help boost your self-esteem and improve your confidence. It can help you feel valued - and value yourself

  • Regular exercise can help boost the immune system and protect against many forms of disease (or at least lessen their impact) 

What does the programme involve?

This is a six-week well-being programme introducing beginners to physical activity through 1-2-1 coaching sessions with Active Lifestyle Wellbeing coordinators, Sam and Jacqui. There is no cost for staff and students to apply and complete this programme.
