The bespoke gym zone is an area where we can work on building physical fitness and raise awareness of how positive moving the body can be.
With an extensive range of gym equipment, we are able to create programmes that suit each of our young people and ensure they are able to use the equipment correctly with good form, so they are able to stay safe within the gym environment at Iprovefit and beyond.
Our aim is to provide a non-intimidating gym environment so that our young people can use it in a way that benefits them personally.
We aim to breakdown some of the insecurities and stereotypes associated with a mainstream gym as they can sometimes be a barrier to a young person’s ability to attend.
We have often used this method to aid in a young person successfully and consistently attending a mainstream gym after we have worked on building confidence in our own gym (over 16’s).
The ergonomic equipment has been chosen as it’s easy to use and will suit any level of ability.
Our treadmills, for example, have built-in safety features to ensure we are safeguarding our young people at all times.
Many of our resistance weight and cable machines are dual designed so you do not have to keep jumping back and forth to different machines.
This means they can be more productive and maximise the amount of time in the gym.
Young people are the future of any community and we all want to feel we have a positive place in society.
Iprovefit provide positive mentors and direction to learners and young people who may struggle with the difficulties that they may have gone through or are going through.
We aim to support mainstream academic provisions, local authorities or any alternative specialist provision with an early intervention tool, Iprovefit.
Through our work we can help prevent exclusions and keep learners or young people on a positive path to becoming happy, balanced, confident and positive members of the community as adults.
We can also get them back on track to seeing their potential if in alternative provision or struggling with access to education by being home-bound.
