movement is not just about looking good. It has many benefits that are crucial for our health – it helps us to feel and perform better, live longer, and with less disability as we age. Movement is vital to our happiness, and can help us to manage anxiety and depression.

Moving our body improves fitness levels. Fitness boosts our mood, energy levels, focus and brainpower. It can spark creativity and propel productivity.
