My aim is to build a mobile gym from a refurbished trailer. To go to SEN schools, residential homes and vulnerable people for mental health

We're still collecting donations

On the 10th December 2021 we'd raised £1,031 with 34 supporters in 56 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

Everyone deserves to have access to good physical and mental health as well as a safe place to exercise. Resistance training, weight lifting and cardio all have extremely positive benefits to better mental health as well as keeping fit and healthy. Working with SEN children in various settings, over the years, I have seen a real lack of good or affordable facilities that can provide our children with much needed activities and exercise.
I have also watched our children flourish and grow when they have had the opportunity to visit gyms or partake in consistent,structured and fun exercise. This isn’t just about putting our young people through their paces , it’s about offering life changing opportunities that they are often being denied of. With a mobile gym I can take the gym to them and all those that deserve and need it, will have access to it.

As a qualified personal trainer, a strength athlete and someone who has suffered with poor mental health, I am a huge advocate for improving lives through fitness. Part of the mission is to also align myself with an accredited  awarding body so that I can also offer a qualification ,that the young people/participants  can aim to work towards. This will look great on their CV and help improve their sense of self and confidence on completion.

I absolutely love my job , working in schools and will continue to do so but I always feel like I should and can do more. During school holidays some of our young people are for more vulnerable when they are at home or often, through no fault of their own or their families , they just can’t get access to activities during the holidays. I would like to get to a position to be able to offer free sessions during the holidays, that can be subsidised by running sessions for schools, businesses, local groups or individuals  who are looking for low cost gym alternatives.

Having put together a business and budget plan , to get the project off the ground with the cost of all the materials, renovation costs, insurance, accreditation etc,  it all ads up.


So if anyone can spare anything at all and would like to be apart of something that could be life changing for those who may never otherwise get this opportunity . All donations and sharing will be great fully received.
