Martha Lourey-Bird


Martha is an exercise scientist with over 20 years’ experience in the academic, corporate and training sectors. She is sought after as a scientific advisor and for her talent as a health and wellbeing presenter. She’s also an engaging, inspiring sports coach and, with a Masters degree in Sports Science, an award-winning University lecturer. Her mission is to make exercise accessible for ‘every body’ and flexible work assists this greatly.
"Flexible working is something I am passionate about both personally (as a working mum) and professionally (as an exercise scientist). If we allow people time within their work day to be physically active, every body wins." 
Staff that exercise regularly are less likely to take sick leave, recover quicker when they do, have more strategies for coping with stress and anxiety and enjoy better sleep and less back pain. They’ve also been shown to be more productive during the working day.
