Physical Activity Peer Coaching Sessions

Are you a student struggling with a busy schedule and not getting enough physical activity? Or perhaps you are struggling with your body image, work productivity, mental health, or sleep quality, and wondering if physical activity might help?

Getting in 150 minutes of physical activity in your week has many benefits such as improved mood, better sleep quality, enhanced memory and brain function, lowered risk of diseases and the list goes on! Whether you are a student or staff, we understand fitting in physical activity can be challenging for many reasons.

As the Move U Crew, we’re here to support you! We are now offering free 1-on-1 peer Physical Activity Coaching sessions. Within these 30-minute sessions, we will help you to break down your barriers, set goals and suggest ways to fit physical activity that interests you into your busy schedule. These sessions are completely free and open to students, staff, faculty, and community members of all fitness levels and abilities.

  • Physical Activity Coaching sessions will be offered virtually. A Zoom link will be sent to you before your session.
  • Please note that we are students like you, and while we are knowledgeable about physical activity, we are not coaching or counselling experts.
  • If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to physical.activity@ubc.ca.
