People are living longer and an individuals health and fitness dicatates what quality of life they will have in later years. I plan to work with residential and care homes throughout the county to improve the lives of its residents. I will also offer personal training at local gyms and provate households for people over 50 years of age.

I have set up a website at www.wiltshirefitness.co.uk and have already contacted large organisations that target older adults to discuss ways in which my services could be promoted to their customers. The market is huge and there are very few (I have seen ONE) that focusses on working with people over 50. 

Personal training can take place in a local gym, private household and I have spoken with numerous retirement homes who would like to meet with me to run weekly "seated" exercise sessions for its residents. In addition to personal training I would run classes such as: Walking rugby, football and basketball. All of which are designed to be fun, social and active.

I appreciate there are thousands of personal trainers but these trainers are usually young and target younger athletes. Wiltshire Fitness will soley target the over 50's who may or may not have medical conditions. This is a great opportunity to support a business which will make a difference to so many lives!

I am looking to fund a branded vehicle to enable me to drive basic gym equipment to clients. I am also looking for funding to open a gym, strictly or people over 50 years of age. This should encourage older adults to participate in sport and become more active and healthy.
