This programme marks the end of the fully funded trial for Fitness In Mind. Going forward, whilst the programme plans to continue, there may be a fee to participate. The latest data for the trial period has been remarkable, showing how participants have felt a significantly positive change in their mental, physical and social wellbeing over the 12 week period. Mental wellbeing showed a positive change of 30%, physical wellbeing a 33% increase and social wellbeing a 22% lift. Members comments have been overwhelming telling us how “Fitness in Mind has given them a safe place to go where there’s no judgement”. They have been “able to talk and get to know people” and have felt “uplifted” as their “confidence grew”.
