Encouraging Women into Running in a safe and supportive environment

Welcome to GoodGym Liverpool

We're a friendly and social group who combine exercise with helping out in the local community. We meet every week to get active and do a physical task to help the charities and community organisations and projects across the Liverpool City Region.

The Task

GoodGym Member Marianne is a professional fitness trainer and run coach with a passion for supporting beginners into running and encouraging communities to come together to enjoy running and outdoor activities.

She successfully secured funding from This Girl Can to run couch to 5K programme for 60 women in Liverpool for free and spaces were offered to our GoodGym members to get going on their running goals.

We are delighted to be able to support Marianne and all the fabulous new runners by helping out at their graduation and medal ceremony.

The women will be running a timed 5K along the waterfront and we will be marshalling, cheering and sharing the running love!

The Run A little different for this one due to timings of the event. We will be taking a run around the dock/waterfront area after we have helped out with the graduation run for the C25K programme participants

Now evenings are getting darker we advise you to dig out those hi viz clothes and head torches if you have one! Run Safe.

Turf Wars

Mon 27 Sep
Report written by Sophie McClellan

On a slightly damp Monday evening, 9 Goodgymmers met, once again, on Hope Street. It was lovely to be joined by our task owner Fiona and to welcome Andy who has recently moved up from that there London.

After a quick warm up we set off for The Women's Hospital. The three walkers took a direct root, whilst the runners zigzagged through the streets of the Georgian quarter to Faulkner Square where we met for a quick Hiit session.

Heart rates and energy levels raised sufficiently, we began the task in earnest - digging up the turf around the fruit trees in the grounds of the hospital to clear space for wild flower seeds to be sown. We had soon cleared the space around two of the trees, despite the rain and failing light. Aside from needing a little work on our circle drawing we were satisfied with our work and had the muddy knees to prove it!

Thanks everyone for your hard work, and Fiona for inviting us - we will definitely be back to help out with future projects!

A peony for your thoughts

Mon 13 Sep
Report written by John Connaghan

A team of 11 Goodgym walkers and runners set out to brighten up the SANCTUARY Yarden.

Gathering around the Suitcases, the energy was bubbling as new and old Goodgym members met. It was brilliant to have Frances join us, returning to help this brilliant charity. After a top to toe warm up, we headed off. Pauline leading the walking group and the runners taking a scenic route to admire the Wigwam and Giraffe buildings before rendevousing in Crown St Park. Selfies and parading complete the team met the wonderful Maddie who had everything ready to go. A mix of clearing top soil, weeding and emptying soil commenced with the team working slickly. Two planters were completely revived with fresh compost and the rest were weeded and topped. The difference was considerable and left the Yarden looking much more fitting of the place name.

Well done team for the great effort, thanks to Pauline for walk leading and photos and to Steph for the pun!
