Our Health & Fitness programs begun over 30 years ago for all three sites (Cambridge, Ipswich and Peterborough). We have an inclusive ethos across all sites welcoming people from all backgrounds, abilities, disabilities and groups.
Our work with disabled users has also grown and allowed us to develop exciting partnerships with wider local specialists. Our groups have included;
- Peterborough Regional College (students with learning disabilities)
- Kingfisher House
- Peterborough Prison
- Heltwate School
- Headway and Special Olympics
- Winter Comfort
- Red Balloon
We work with local physiotherapists who refer clients to our gyms who have conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, Cardio Vascular disease, Stroke survivors, amputees etc. Lately we have been supporting people with weight issues and/or health concerns and those with unseen disability such as epilepsy, depression, stress and mental health.
30% of our users have disabilities or life long conditions, and make up 75% of users on a daily basis. With the exception of the NHS, we are one of the few providers who currently offer gyms which are equipped to support this special population.
