What does 'mensana' mean?
"Mens sana in corpore sano" - an old Latin proverb meaning: "A healthy mind in a healthy body".
This aligns with our belief that behaviour change should be done to benefit our physical and psychological health in the long-term, and not as a quick fix.
Simply put, we empower people to make positive changes that last.
Being respectful of our clients and only doing what’s best for them, using only techniques that are backed by evidence.
Putting ourselves in the shoes of those we serve.
Maintaining an active research profile and working to bring the latest innovation to practice.
We aim to ignite a passion in our clients that keeps them going.
Collaboration, not prescription.
We listen to you. You are at the centre of every decision. We work with you to find what programmes are best for you.
Innovative and research-driven
Drawing on years of experience and cutting-edge research to help you develop lifelong healthy habits.
Tailored - not a 'one size fits all' approach
No two people are the same, so no two programmes are the same.
Develop a new relationship with exercise and eating
Move away from exercising and eating well as a chore, plodding away on the treadmill for hours on end and restricting your eating. Make movement and eating well an enjoyable part of your everyday life.
Move beyond superficial changes to make a real difference to your life
Many existing trainers or programmes will tell you what exercises to do and when, without paying attention to the underlying skills and experiences that are needed to make real change. We work to build your behaviour change skills.
Rediscover your motivation
Successful change starts with the question 'why'?
We help you to unearth and understand your motivation, and to understand why this is important.
We will convince you to believe that change is possible.
Failed attempts at changing behaviour usually happen due to strategies that only work in the short-term. We can walk you through you an alternative way of changing your behaviour. This includes a practical toolkit that includes innovative and proven techniques to help people change their lives in the long-term. We help you to:
- Set the right types of goals.
- Find opportunities to be physically active.
- Make use of techniques to deal with 'low motivation' days (we all have them!).
