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 technical running top.

All aspects of GoodGym are free to participate in. Most GoodGym members make an optional monthly donation which goes 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.

Hazel, GoodGym Barnet

Running with GoodGym is great because I get fit, do good and get to hang with a load of awesome people.

Mark, GoodGym Islington

GoodGym combines doing good with running, which helps me forget I'm even exercising. It's great!
