If you wanted to demonstrate to someone who knew nothing about Goodgym, what we do, this task was one to watch.

After meeting at The Mercury Theatre, we ran through Abbey Fields and met Annabel before heading to John Lampon Court, a Colchester Borough Homes residential home with a lovely courtyard to maintain. So the first element of Goodgym we demonstrated was actively traveling to the task for a few kilometers.

Secondly, the task was a physical battle. Goodgymers armed with metal bristled brushes scrubbing moss away and sweeping it up into a bin. Imagine Curling but instead of ice, concrete!! a tough arm workout!

And thirdly socializing, chatting, thinking of puns and knowing we made the paths less slippery. Satisfying job done.
