About the program

Mind Yourself & Get Involved is our physical activity & wellbeing programme and this year we are launching an online timetable to keep you busy!

We all know the importance of keeping fit, being healthy and taking care of our mental health and wellbeing!!  Especially during a pandemic and the lockdowns that come with it…  We also know the challenges of finding the right class or session that fits what you need and when you want it! 

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Kings sport to provide a FREE online programme that fits around you. 

The online timetable has 50+ classes and sessions for you to choose from ranging from yoga and pilates, to HIIT workouts and barre, to Zumba and LBT.  There is also meditation and journaling in there to introduce you to some great practices which will positively impact your mental health and wellbeing.
