Peterborough Idea stage

We provide private wellness solutions to individuals, families and businesses throughout Cambridgeshire and Peterborough both in our fixed and mobile facilities. We would like to continue our work within communities, training and educating those who cannot afford, travel or face starting their fitness journey. Our professionals visit deprived areas and homeless communities in our state-of-the-art mobile fitness facility to encourage healthier and more sustainable lifestyles through fitness training, physiotherapy, counselling, hypnotherapy and nutritional advice. We have already started working with local charities, authorities and councils to visit areas they cannot reach. Our state-of-the-art mobile fitness facility is capable of visiting multiple locations and training those who want to start fitness but simply cannot afford it. As with all ventures and subsidiary based schemes, funding is a big part of bridging the gaps and allowing us to provide the very best service to all.

What we'll deliver:

  • Educate and personally train deprived families and homeless communities
  • Build stronger communities through social engagement
  • Help communities thrive with sustainable lifestyle choices and future planning
  • Create career paths for individuals on our development programme

Why it's a great idea:

Our aim is to include as many individuals as possible. We have developed our mobile fitness facility to encourage everyone to begin, enjoy and benefit from fitness, no matter their current level or abilities. By working with local authorities, charities and organisations, we have begun to utilise our services to boost health, mood and positivity amongst the communities we've had the pleasure of visiting. We have witnessed positive changes through our interactive training and pride ourselves on putting the fun back into fitness. No matter their age, gender, religion, ability or location, we plan to include everyone in order to strengthen communities through social engagement and increased confidence, especially following the recent pandemic and subsequent lockdowns. This is the chance to take wellness solutions into the heart of communities and change lives for the better forever.

Steps to get it done:

  • Engage with our first 100 people
  • Visit 10 different communities

We would like to continue our community outreach programmes which are currently back by our local authority Mayor Dr Nik Johnson, Huntingdonshire District Council managing director Jo Lancaster, Cambridge and Peterborough Combined Authority, Growth Works, Living Sport, Cross Keys Homes and other organisations. This opportunity will afford individuals and families the chance to use fitness and holistic therapies as a tool to help create healthier lifestyles, clearer outlook, career opportunities and a greater positive impact on their life and families lives. We are also collaborating with Anglian Ruskin University to work with selected masters students to create collated studies which will provide data to improve future projects for the better. We just ask for the opportunity to explain how we ensure our solutions provide positive results through our continued developments and experience based projects.
