Choose from one of the following options and we'll tell you which GoodGym activities are best suited for you.

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!

Judy, GoodGym Lambeth
