Enjoy Fitness has partnered with local wellbeing experts Smith and Wellness to bring you our first ever…
Do you want to feel stronger, healthier, and more flexible – both inside and out? This program is about making changes that are more than skin-deep, and celebrating you as a whole person (not just a body or another number). Terrified of before-and-after photos? Don’t worry, there won’t be any of those here!
The 12 Week Wellbeing Challenge is about shifting from the inside out. It is based on scientific evidence about how we can be our best selves, both at the gym and beyond. Over 12 sessions, we will discover what neuroscience can tell us about our mind-body connections, learn practical “brain hacks” for working smarter (not harder) at the gym, create a plan for applying our new strategies, and do it all with a group of like-minded people for support and accountability!
Learn about the negativity bias of the human brain, how it holds us back from achieving what we want, and how we can overcome it. This first session is free and open to anybody who is curious about enrolling in the 12 Week Wellbeing Challenge.
Learn about adrenal fatigue, the role of the fight-or-flight system, and how to exercise in a way that nourishes your system and doesn’t burn you out.
We often focus on what we don’t want instead of what we do want. Learn about the reticular activating system in our brain and how to activate it for better results (at the gym and beyond!).
Learn how to rebound from setbacks and avoid bad habits by bringing your subconscious values to the surface.
In this session you will hear a case study on a country with the world’s lowest rate of eating disorders, what they are doing differently to stay healthy, and the detox you can take to increase your happiness.
Why people-pleasing puts a strain on our relationship with ourselves as well as others, and what your heart rate has got to do with it.
Is your ideal to be “as cool as a cucumber?” What about “cool, calm and collected?” This session uncovers the reasons why “cool” is overrated, what it is doing to your health, and how to warm up to embrace your inner un-cool-ness.
Did you know that besides the brain in your head, you also have a sophisticated network of neurons in your heart and in your gastro-intestinal tract, known as the heart-brain and the gut-brain? Learn how to use them at the gym, at work and at home, and expand your idea of what “intelligence” is.
Discover ways you can find – and create – a deeper sense of purpose in your exercise routine, your work and your life. Learn how this will help shift you from motivation to inspiration (and why it’s important to understand the difference!)
How perfectionism is a cognitive trap that limits our perspective, reduces our self-esteem and inhibits our ability to perform. Learn three evidence-based strategies that will re-wire your system to help you achieve more.
The world around us seems to be getting more frantic, and we can’t always stop in the middle of everything. So how do we look after our wellbeing when we are busy? Learn and practice ways to re-charge even when you’re on the go.
Our final session will summarise what we have covered together, and is also an opportunity for participants to share where they have been in their 12-week journey, and what their next steps will be after the program.
