Webinar: Finding the Right Movement for You
Many people feel they ‘should’ exercise more, or ‘should’ exercise in a certain way. In truth, we are all different and will benefit and enjoy different sorts of movement at different times. Using Ollie’s innovative ‘Movement motivational grid’ and the latest research on movement we help you put together an effective plan that motivates you to build the optimal movement into your lifestyle. This session offers a fresh and practical approach to the escalating problems of both under-exercising and over-exercising, and how they relate to your performance at work and in life.
