Students, our next generation, are suffering greatly from sitting so much, particularly on laptops and devices. They’re also feeling the pressure of increasing demands on their time and of their performance.
Students are feeling this strain physically & mentally. Stiffness, soreness and poor posture are more prevalent and fatigue, overwhelm, even depression are now common issues among students.
With a strong link between exercise and improved mental health, Kym brings her 20+ years of experience as a physiotherapist to her workshops. She inspires and empowers students, their teachers and parents to build their physical resilience so they can feel their best and perform their best.
Kym equips students with a toolkit of targeted stretches and exercises that will take the strain off their bodies, develop better endurance for studying and kickstart their concentration & productivity. Kym also helps students develop healthy posture, study and electronic device habits to future-proof their bodies from a sedentary lifestyle in the years ahead.
Kym’s ‘Be Fit 2 Sit’ and ‘Be Fit 4 Study’ programs and workshops walk students, their teachers & parents through simple, age-appropriate strategies that have helped thousands of her patients ditch the drain, strain and pain of studying, plus gain healthy posture and productivity habits for life… and ultimately achieve success!
