My main project description is a Fun Family Fitness session for all ages, genders, races the whole community to enjoy together. •It will intail a 5 minute warm up of walking, jogging or running arround 4 cones. (Also gives everyone a chance to get to know each other) •10 mins of assort courses (using ladders, cones, balls, skipping) •15mins of a fun games (football, ball dog, races, catching games, traffic light, mini ball games) •5mins stretch and breathing for beginners mindfulness and meditation. I would like to run these sessions in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park (QEOP) on the grass near the Podium Cafe in the summer and in the winter in the cafe or the London Aquatics Centre Studio. I have chosen this end of the park as I live just off Biggerstaff rd and feel it is lacking the community feel and fitness that the whole family can enjoy. As a single parent living in Carpenters estate i find my self very isolated not knowing anyone, I know Im not alone. Its time to stop it

What we'll deliver:

  • A greater community feel in and around the QEOP
  • Happier healthier people spending quality time with their family
  • Stress relief, increased endorphins
  • Motivation to move more

Why it's a great idea:

Because the World Health Organisation has predicted that by 2020 the greatest health risk will be depression and all of the things people will gain from these sessions promote better mental wellbeing. For instance exercise helps the production and releases seretonin the happy hormone into your body and regular exercise will create a more consistent happines states. Making new friends being part of something (a group)is proven to build self esteem, confidence and communication skills. Group exercise has a higher rate of commitment then fitness or working out alone. All of the above will in time help to increase the economy with confidence and community support people will feel and know there is more to life and that you can accomplish anything. I have lived in Carpenters estate for over a year now and there is a real lack of community feel, I know that these classes will help people to have hope, to believe in them selves and most of all have fun with their families.

Steps to get it done:

  • Buying the equipment for the first session
  • Actively promote the session in the local community
  • purchase the insurance required

With time and growth this will increase volunteering and Jobs as there is more need for sessions. The increase Education will be incorporated in the sessions fitness and nutrition advise creating wellness education.
