Fitness In Mind™ is an award winning initiative designed to promote, encourage and provide physical activity as an aid to mental wellbeing.
Sport and physical activity are proven to boost self-esteem, reduce stress, and help prevent or reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, but getting active when you’re not feeling great isn’t easy. Low motivation, social anxiety, self-image issues, uncertainty regarding exercise, and financial expense, can all hinder us from using this vital and hugely enjoyable life tool.
At Fitness In Mind™ we strive to support individuals into fun physical activity, helping them establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle for both body and mind.
All our classes are run by specially selected, qualified instructors, and friendly Peer-Support Volunteers, giving expert tuition, emotional support, and guidance towards other useful organisations.
Our #Exclusive courses are produced for Fitness In Mind™ members requiring the maximum support from the Fitness In Mind™ team. Each session will be allocated with a project activator to organise the logistics, and at least one qualified peer support worker to help facilitate group support and to offer mental health and wellbeing signposting. Courses should be designed around a drop-in arrangement for all abilities, with steady progression and a big element of fun and encouragement.
Cost: £3.50 with Concession Card. Free for Members. £5.00 for Non-Members.
Our #Inclusive sessions are produced for Fitness In Mind™ members requiring the minimum support from the Fitness In Mind™ team. Each session will be allocated with a project activator to organise the logistics, and to offer basic mental wellbeing signposting. Sessions are integrated with Brentwood Centre members and should be designed around a drop-in arrangement for all abilities, with similar progression as any mainstream session.
