There’s nothing quite like the start of a new month to reset your goals and prioritise your mental, emotional and physical wellbeing, especially as we get closer to the silly season.

That’s why we’re bringing back Sweat-ember - an exclusive calendar packed full of fun activities designed to boost your mood and improve your wellbeing.

Over the 30 days of Sweat-ember we’ll be bringing you free workouts, self-care tips, fitness advice and easy, feel-good ways to show up for yourself and feel your best - all month long!

It all kicks off September 1 — simply save this image to your camera roll. You can mark off your activities electronically, print it out and stick it on the fridge for a dose of daily motivation or even share it on your Instagram where you can tag a friend or workout buddy and encourage them to join in!

You don’t have to be a Sweat member to participate (although if you’re looking to level up your health and fitness, we have a sneaking suspicion Sweat is the right choice for you) and you can do as much (or as little!) as you like. After all, it’s your Sweat-ember! Make it count.
