Trainer for GoodGym Coventry. Likes to run and swim, in plenty of open spaces and open water.
Yorkie Trainer. Fan of irresponsibly signing up for races longer than I am capable of. Lover of all things York and Goodgym!

How to get involved
Just sign up to your local group for free to get involved or if you’re keen to take the plunge and get involved on a regular basis you can become a member.
Becoming a member
If you become a member we'll help you get fit by doing good. You'll get the support of the GoodGym community and help to set and achieve fitness goals, and a new GoodGym New Balance technical running top.
All aspects of GoodGym are free to participate in. Most GoodGym members donate an optional £9.95 a month which go to the GoodGym Charity to help us reach more older people. We’ll ask you if you’d like to donate when you join.
Before GoodGym I always lost motivation to stick at running or the gym but now I run two or three times a week.
Running with GoodGym is great because I get fit, do good and get to hang with a load of awesome people.
If you're lacking motivation when it comes to fitness, why not get fit by accident?
GoodGym offers an imaginative alternative to conventional gyms, tapping into the human potential of local communities.
Why burn energy in the gym when you could harness that effort to spruce up public spaces, or visit lonely pensioners?
