Good News! We are reopening after lockdown

Our gym and face to face service will begin phased reopening on 19th October. For several weeks now our staff have worked behind the scenes to make sure that when we open our doors again during COVID-19 we do so as safely as possible.

For limited weekly open hours we invite members to return to exercise for 45 minute sessions in the gym, which will be arranged by bookings only. To manage reduced numbers during the pandemic we will not accept members visiting the gym without a pre-booked session

We're here! To help you keep moving.

What an extraordinary week in unprecedented times. This week, for the first time since we opened 14 years ago, we closed our gym and suspended face to face services. This is all of course to protect our gym members in the wake of corona virus (Covid-19) and to abide by the progressively changing guidelines from Public Health England.

Service Update From Ability Bow

We have issued a statement regarding the coronavirus below. 

Public Health England is now recommending some new actions that will help delay the spread of Covid-19. In support of the delay strategy, Ability Bow has decided to suspend its specialist disabilities exercise services.

This means there will be no gym or exercise services at Ability Bow gym or at our community group classes until further notice.

Our Staff Are Going The Extra Mile (Or 13.1) For Funds This Sunday 1 March!

Our gym's outstanding operations manager - who developed a life-altering knee injury in a near deadly collision with a bus just days before starting his new job - is tackling his first charity fundraiser in 8 years this Sunday 1 March 2020 in aid of his Bow-based therapy gym. 

Si Mohamed Dahiri, 38, who works for our Tower Hamlets based team, will be aiming to raise a combined £2,000 for our life-changing exercise service at the Vitality Big Half marathon on Sunday, by running alongside our fellow mental health exercise lead instructor, super Samuel Quiah, 27.
