Exercise: A Tool for Mental Health

We've all lost someone we know and care about to suicide.

Friends, family and acquaintances who seemed fine on the outside but who were battling their own demons in silence.

In the fitness industry this is something we don't naturally talk about.


At TIME 2 TALK seminar we want to address this head on, with speakers from all areas of the fitness industry giving their insight and knowledge so we can all lead more mentally healthy lives.




from 1PM

3 people standing outside a gym entrance

Where this all started - Lorraine Denman

Time 2 Talk was conceived following my interview with Time 4 Nutrition in 2019. I talked candidly about the suicide of my daughter Ellie Soutter and how it has touched every part of my life, but mostly it highlighted the fragility of mental health and how difficult it is to talk about without feeling weak and judged.

Exercise has always been a tool that I have used to cope with my anxieties and trauma on a personal never occurred to me that everyone else was doing the same but not talking about it. Then COVID hit full force and it became even more apparent that exercise helps and supports mental health This was a FACT -  exercise really does help people cope on a day to day basis ,I am living proof along with many others.


Me and an incredible team of like minded people who are professionals, gym owners, personal trainers, athletes and friends are willing to give their time and share their knowledge to help others to achieve better mental fitness by giving our knowledge,  experience and a chance to share and talk. 


Don't judge a book by its cover. We may look strong on the outside but there is always the inside to take care of too.
