Would you like to be more confident to exercise?

Meet our Wellness Coach, Sheela, as she gives an introduction into how we can help you find the confidence to start exercising.

At LiveWell Dorset, we often meet people who are keen to increase their levels of activity but who don't feel confident to do so.. Being self-conscious shouldn’t hold you back from achieving your goals, Sheela offers four tips on how you can get started:

  1. Do Your Research – Think about activities you have enjoyed in the past, or activities you think would be enjoyable and do some research online on the best way to get started.
  2. Enlist A Friend – You might find that you feel more confident exercising with a friend, so buddy up with a pal, colleague or family member and achieve your fitness goals together.
  3. Track Your Progress – By tracking your progress you will gain more confidence as you see your fitness levels improve; so, time your run or increase your levels of activity gradually.
  4. Look The Part – If you feel a bit self-conscious when exercising, then you could treat yourself to some new work out clothing, because if you look the part, you’ll feel the part! 

Our Wellness Coaches can teach you how to build self confidence and overcome your fears as you start your journey to a better you.

How does this work?

The tailored approach LiveWell Dorset uses to come up with solutions to the things that are stopping us achieving our goals, is based upon work done by University College London developing the COM-B model of behaviour change. In this model, all behaviour is influenced by understanding a person’s capability to change, their opportunity to change and their motivation to change. By understanding which of these is the biggest barrier to change, we can tailor support accordingly. This model of behaviour change is at the centre of the support we offer, online and in person.
