SUPPORTING YOU DURING EXAM SEASON
Exercise and Physical Activity have been proven to help reduce stress and improve mental well-being. Therefore, alongside the other services provided by the University and Student’s Union, here at SurreyMoves+ we will be trying to help in exam season. From having healthy snacks available as rewards to fuel your revision, to more weekly challenges available for you to complete. We will also be releasing a set of recipes that are healthy and quick to make, ensuring you stay at your best while revising.

Finally, among other events, we will be releasing a series of quick exercises, completed in your bedroom or just away from your desks. Even though it is important to make sure you are fully prepared for your exams, it is equally important to make sure you take some time away from your desk to recharge your batteries and enjoy the increasingly improving weather.

DR BIKE SESSION
With summer now upon us, there is no better time to get active out and about on your bike!

To ensure your bike is road-ready, come and stop by our Dr Bike session at Surrey Sports Park entrance on Tuesday 10th May from 10am to 2pm for a free bike check. The Geared Up Cycles team will check your bike to ensure everything is in order so you are ready to hit the road over the coming months. With accessories available to upgrade your bike, it’s also the perfect opportunity to get yourself kitted out for a summer of cycling. There will also be some fun challenges to enjoy while your bike gets serviced such as a watt bike and smoothie bike challenge.
