GET FIT & FEEL GREAT – HELPING YOURSELF NEVER FELT SO GOOD!
We are one of the few local charity gyms and #payitforward means that your gym membership contributes to something special.
We believe that everyone should enjoy the benefits of good health and wellbeing and when you use our gym you have even more reason to feel good as you are helping someone else to turn their life around.
Michael, aged 27, became a familiar face in our gym,and recognising his true grit and determination, fitness staff recommended him for gym instructor training through a bespoke programme designed to engage disabled people in the fitness industry.
Michael said: “My life fell apart when I was left paralysed from the chest down after being struck down by an unknown virus. I was only 17 and my life had been turned upside down.”
Michael had to adjust to life in a wheelchair and in order to build up his strength joined YMCA Thames Gateway’s gym.
Thanks to the support of our members, Michael is now a qualified Fitness Instructor and is going from strength to strength.
You can make a real difference to the futures to more young people like Michael:
- Provide a home for a young person at risk of homelesssness
- Rehab programmes for peopole recovering from health conditions
- Cancer recovery programmes for people recovering from cancer
