Modern sedentary lifestyles shorten lifespan and are responsible for worldwide increases in non-communicable diseases. Physical activity is an overlooked, but fundamental, component of human health and wellbeing, and current research shows that for a healthy life, we need to be doing more physical activity, more often. This new multidisciplinary course is focussed on developing the skills and knowledge needed for working with others to improve their health and wellbeing. The emphasis is on the use of physical activity to improve people’s lives; such as supervised exercise for general fitness, weight loss or other health gain, helping someone go for a walk, or attend a dance class, or simply give advice.
