Since early 2020, TWiEA™ has been working closely with the British NHS Research and Innovation team at the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust on an isometric exercise initiative.
From small beginnings, this has grown to TWiEA™ instructors delivering an increasing level of isometric exercise training to NHS employees across all sectors, from clinicians on the front line to the office teams supporting them.
In 2022, TWiEA™ and the NHS Research and Innovation team at the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust have begun the rollout of the exciting and powerful Workout at Work™ initiative. The simplicity of this concept combined with the proven science underlying isometric exercise is now poised to be rolled out across more regions of the NHS and in private sector companies as well.
The chief problems to overcome to encourage more people to take regular exercise always revolve around the lack of time, the lack of money, and the lack of overall motivation. TWiEA™ has solved all of these problems with the exciting and powerful Workout at Work™ initiative.
The Workout at Work™ initiative involves employees performing one, simple yet effective isometric exercise that takes just 7-seconds, and doing a differing one every 30 minutes throughout the working day. At the end of an average 9-hour workday, a comprehensive 18-exercise total-body workout will have been performed discretely without ever leaving the point of work.
As a by-product, increasing the blood flow to the brain every 30-minutes boosts mental agility and concentration while the exercises generate an improved positive mental attitude and release stress and depression-busting hormones to enhance the mood and feel-good factor.
The overall result is that the person becomes stronger, fitter, healthier, feels better, has a more positive mental attitude, and is up to 31% more efficient at their job meaning that everyone wins!
TWiEA™ will continue to work closely with the NHS Research and Innovation team at the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust to help proliferate the use of regular isometric exercises and the Workout at Work™ initiative within the NHS and throughout the private sector;

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“I did the isometric course as I was aware that a lot of the sport I do is lower half dominant – cycling and running.
I feel stronger in my upper core, more connected to my lower core, more fluid when I run.”
