Support for Physical Activity (SPA) Programme

spa_logo1

For students who want to be a bit more active, a bit more often.

Being physically active is one of the most important things you can do for your health. It can help control your weight, improve your mental health, self-esteem and mood, reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes as well as some forms of cancer.

Who is it for?
If you are:

  • currently doing less than 150 of moderate intensity activity over the course of a week; and
  • are keen to do more; and
  • would welcome some support to achieve this

Then please get in touch with the SPA team directly by email at spa.programme@ed.ac.uk to make an appointment with the SPA Programme Officer.

This is a free, non-judgemental, service that is designed to support you to be more active and feel better- it’s as simple as that! You don’t even need to be a member of the CSE to take up this opportunity. All the discussions you have with the SPA team will be entirely confidential. So whether you have been active before or not, and if you are interested in improving your health and feeling better, then this programme is for you.
