The Active Wellbeing Academy

Too often, the pressures of trying to stay healthy, fit and active can lead to more stress being added to our lives. It takes up so much headspace. Worrying whether we’re doing enough. Or worse, beating ourselves up because we believe we aren’t. The pressures we place on ourselves can lead to ‘All or Nothing’ cycles. So at times we are really focused on our health but then we burn ourselves out (mentally) and end up wanting to do nothing at all.

What we really want is to enjoy life!

I want to help you break out of the vicious cycle and instead create a healthy lifestyle that you love.

A life of ‘Active Wellbeing’.

How can we live healthy lives whilst being kind to ourselves too?

‘Active Wellbeing’ is my unique philosophy on health and wellness. It balances health and physical fitness goals with mental wellbeing, and it takes into account the whole person and the whole of life.

Active Wellbeing removes the pressure of getting fit the “proper” way and teaches us to appreciate our bodies and the wonderful things they are capable of. Everybody is unique, and everybody has an Active Wellbeing path which fits them.

Creating an active lifestyle for yourself is transformational. Not only to your health but to other areas of life too. Women who succesfully maintain an active lifestyle report feelings of increased self-esteem, self-worth, confidence and a sense of freedom! That is what I want for you.

My Active Wellbeing Academy will not only get you started but will continue to support you as your journey progresses. You will learn how to create sustainable fitness routines without the stress, how to motivate yourself at times when you’re not feeling your best and how to pick yourself back up when you fall down – so that you can continue to live a healthier, happier life.

An active lifestyle will change your life! Don’t just take my word for it. Even the government agrees, as you can see below.

Who is it for?

My Active Wellbeing Academy is for women who want a healthier balance in life. In particular:

  • Mums over 40 who desire an active and healthier later life
  • Busy career women struggling to put themselves first
  • Retirement age women looking for gentle ways to stay fit and healthy

The Academy

The Active Wellbeing Academy will guide and support you through the lifestyle changes you want to make.

In this programme you will learn how to:

  • Set your own goals – that motivate you – so you feel excited about the possibilities
  • Create more fun in your active routine – so that you feel more motivated
  • Recognise your strengths and abilities – so that you feel more confident
  • Deal with setbacks – so that you can quickly recover from being knocked off track
  • Strengthen you inner belief system – so you feel more confident about taking on challenges
  • Find space in your life for being active – so that you feel less stressed about ‘fitting it in’

How the Active Wellbeing Academy Works

The Active Wellbeing Academy is a 12 month membership programme with set intake times throughout the year.

When you join the Academy you will get access to:

  • 12 pre-recorded sessions, with guided activities, to take you through the core learnings (made available 1 per week)
  • Weekly LIVE Coaching sessions with Exercise Psychology Coach, Diane Brown
  • Monthly LIVE ‘Review & Refresh’ sessions to check and adapt your ‘Active Wellbeing’ Plan

The Investment

The Active Wellbeing Academy is your investment in yourself, for you to live a more active and fulfilled life.

I am restricting this first intake to just 15 new members.

  • RIGHT NOW 12 month membership of the Active Wellbeing Academy is just £360! (or 6 x £60 payments!)


  • When you pay for a 12 month membership in full (£360), you will get a BONUS 1:1 consultation with me (worth £70)
  • When you join before 4th October, you will ALSO, qualify for complementary lifetime membership, which means nothing more to pay, ever!

That’s less than most gym memberships, but with someone genuinely working to support you, and you don’t have to pay it again next year!!!

How amazing would it feel to have someone supporting you every step of the way with the changes you’d love to make? To boost your motivation when it feels tough, to bolster your self-confidence and self-belief and to share your excitement about the journey?!


In additon, because I am so confident in my academy, if you feel like you haven’t made any progress after the first month (and have attended every session), I will happily give you a full re-fund!

Your Coach, Diane Brown

In the Active Wellbeing Academy you will be getting the dedicated service of a professional Exercise Psychology Coach (me) and an experienced Wellbeing Life Coach (also me). So who am I?

I’m really passionate about helping women get active and feel good (whatever that means for you). I chose this work due to my own personal experiences of getting fit and what it did to improve my wellbeing and success in life. My personal favourite activities are running and triathlon, although these days I do a bit of walking and yoga too. I developed this ‘first-of-its-kind’ adademy as I could see the need for a different way to support women with their wellbeing goals. One that embraced physical activity as a key component to wellbeing, and also paid greater attention to the mental as well as physical benefits. On top of all of this I am also qualified to Level 2 in Triathlon Coaching with the British Triathlon Federation, giving me additional knowledge in the fields of swimming, cycling and run training.

I’m lovely to work with too! But don’t just take my word for it, here’s what my client’s say about me:

What my clients say…

Diane’s Active Wellbeing Programme has really helped me to focus and stay positive about my physical activiy goals. Even on days when I don’t feel 100%, I still feeling the momentum to keep moving forward.

Helen – Active wellbeing Programme – September 2020

Diane’s approach is gentle, non judgemental and supportive. You make your own choices and do what feels right for you on any given day. There is no coersion and you will feel proud of any achievement however big or small. Diane’s gentle questioning and guidance allows you to feel comfortable taking even the smallest steps and then she has a way of making you feel so proud of your achievements along with the other members of the program offering a life line of accountability .

Nicola – Find What Feels Good – March 2020

I’ve just completed the course with Diane, and it has been excellent. I went from someone ‘who doesn’t exercise’ to someone ‘who is becoming active, and enjoying it!’  The course came at just the right time for me, so if it’s something you’ve been thinking about, stop procrastinating and get on with it! Diane is lovely, helpful, encouraging and sympathetic. I never felt judged or put down by my experience, in fact quite the opposite.

When will the coaching sessions be held?

Weekly Coaching and Monthly Planning Sessions will take place on a Monday evening. Attendance of these sessions is not a compulsory part of the programme, but selective attendance when possible will greatly improve your experience in the Academy.

Those paying in full will also receive a BONUS 1:1 consultation at a mutually agreed time.

I never really done “exercise” before and I’m not sure where to start – will the Academy help with this?


The main focus of the Academy is mindset and wellbeing, but I will help you find activities suitable for you and your starting point.

I am qualified to give specific guidance on swimming, cycling and running, and I have numerous contacts in other areas such as walking, yoga, pilates, online gyms and strength training so I am always happy to point you in the right direction for any sport specific support.

Will the programme be as intense as the 5 day challenge?

No. The challenge was designed to help you cover a lot of ground quickly, but I would not expect you to maintain that pace continuously. The Academy is designed to allow to to progress at your own pace. The minimum recommended time to complete all of the workshop style tasks is 12 weeks, but you are free to go at your own pace.

I have a really busy and hectic life – Will I be able to fit this in?

Absolutely. The programme has been designed so that it allows you to discover ways to fit active wellbeing into a hectic life.

Ideally you will need to find the time to attend the weekly coaching session but in the beginning this is all you need. I will work with you to help you find time for more physical activity.

This seems like quite a gentle approach – is it still suitable for me as I would like to really challenge myself?

Absolutely! What’s great about this programme is that it suits anyone at any level. You come with your own goals and I support you to get to where you want to be. The sky’s the limit!

I’d love to join the Academy but I’m not sure if I can afford it right now – are there any payment plans available?

Yes. You can pay in 6 installments if you wish to spread the cost. You will pay £60 at checkout by redeeming the code ‘PAY6’ at checkout. I will then contact you to arrange five further monthly payments of £60.

If you choose to pay in full (£360) you will receive a free BONUS: A 1:1 Consultation with me to get you started (worth £70)

Remember, that because you are one of the first to join, you also qualify for ‘lifetime’ membership, meaning you never need to pay again!

In future memberships will be for 12 months.

How do I Book?

To book you just click one of the big orange buttons!

Then, when you go to payment, decide if you wish to pay in full (to received the bonus) or pay in installments.

To pay in installments redeem the coupon code ‘PAY6’ when checking out.

Would you like to talk it over?

I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you through the challenge and I want you to feel comfortanble with whatever decision you make. I’ve opened up some space in my diary so you can book a 20 minute ‘Coffee and Chat’. An online conversation (via Zoom) so that you can ask me any questions you might have. There’s no obligation, just a bit of time and space to talk things over.
