Do Good, Get Fit
A group of people are beginning the process of setting up GoodGym in Selby.
Can you help make it happen?
Forget the gym, we get fit by doing good. Our community of runners and qualified trainer will help you achieve your fitness goals by doing physical work that helps your community.
Can’t tell you enough how two weeks of Good Gym have already added so much to my life mate, and I’m feeling fit as a fiddle
Run for the community
We run and clear land for a community gardens, move rubble and tidy community centres. Group runs are regular, sociable and open to all abilities.
Get fit helping older people
GoodGym members get sent one-off missions for such as clearing gardens, changing lightbulbs and doing odd-jobs for older people who struggle to do them alone. You run there, fix the problem, and run back again.
Be a hero
GoodGym pairs members with isolated older people in the community that would appreciate a friendly visit once a week. We call the older people our 'coaches' because they motivate us to keep going.
Let's make GoodGym happen in Selby
