Exercise Buddies

Help other students to start a regular exercise programme.

Are you passionate about exercise, a keen gym-goer or enjoy a leisurely walk on your lunch break? We're looking for enthusiastic and motivated students to get involved in the Exercise Peer Mentor Scheme.

As an Exercise Peer Mentor, you will be paired up with a student who is starting to exercise regularly to improve their mental health. You will help them to find activities they want to try, go with them to activities, help keep them motivated and engaged and keep going with their activities after you finish your role. 

You don't need to be a trained coach or an experienced athlete to be a buddy. An enthusiasm for exercising and helping others, and a commitment to the role are all you need!
