This Workout Will Have You Smiling in Minutes

1 MIN READ • 22nd January 2022
Daniella Gray by Daniella Gray

We all know the benefits of what a workout can do to our physical health, but what about our minds?

The current climate means maintaining our mental health has arguably never been more important, so to get those endorphins flowing, try this workout to boost your mood in minutes.

“Even the smallest amount of movement can help to get the blood pumping and endorphins flowing,” explains Scott Britton, co-founder of Move Forward Gym and Battle Cancer.

“This is a signature style of workout we like to run at Battle Cancer events and at Move Forward Gym. They’re quick, nine-minute workouts that are super simple, and can be done by anyone, no matter what level of ability, experience or fitness.”

“The short, snappy workouts also mean you don’t place the body under too much stress, and it gives you that perfect boost to elevate your mood and find some release.”

Being able to write about everything that's important to me (exercising for mental wellbeing and delicious food, of course) to help people meet their health goals is pretty special. Before emails, I'm usually in the front-room with a dumbbell and on weekends, there's nothing better than the Kent countryside for a leisurely stroll.
