Ratings:
125 pages1 hour

Summary

Exercise training has greatly helped Andrew Edwards manage his autism, his anxiety levels, and the depression he has experienced in spells throughout his adult life. With this in mind, A Vision of Exercise sees Andrew explore inspiring stories of individuals and organisations – with a particular emphasis on disability sport – who have taken sport and exercise in new, interesting, and valuable directions.

With help from the first Welsh footballer to win the European Cup, a Rio 2016 Paralympic Medallist, International Wheelchair Rugby League Players, England International Disability Cricketers, a former European-level Triathlete, and many others, Andrew finds out how the power of exercise can positively influence both body and mind.

Andrew also discusses his personal journey with exercise. In particular, the weight loss and health improvements he has achieved since working with Geraint Roberts at Number One Health Strength Performance.
