UK GoodGym scheme helps you get fit while helping your local community

GoodGym_CoachRun-logoThe GoodGym programme pairs runners with isolated less-mobile people in their area. Runners jog to their house, deliver something nice, have a brief chat and are on their way again. It helps them get fit by providing a good reason to go for a run and it helps the persons visited by providing them with some friendly human contact and service. Runners are supported by fitness experts that help them to achieve their physical objective.
