Ben Caton from South West Sports Education came to talk to Year 10 about having a healthy approach to exercise. The workshop covered the impact that social media has on body image and self-confidence. It also busted myths about exercise, promoting to the pupils the importance of giving your body time to recover after exercise and avoiding over-exercising or under-recovering.
