Meet Drew: Putting Positivity Into Our Mental Health Exercise

One in four people encounter a mental health challenge in their lifetime.  

Our Positive Steps project aims to tackle social isolation and physical challenges through an individual’s perceived mental barriers and enable our members to boost their everyday life with small changes to their emotional and physical wellbeing.  

New Year and New Job Start for Remarkable Receptionist Francesca

We’re delighted to announce our remarkable receptionist Francesca Joseph has made an exciting new job move…although luckily for our charity gym she hasn't gone far; as she’s become our new Ability Bow part-time Executive Assistant.   

Francesca - who’s worked on our reception for just over two years and provided a range of necessary duties including vital administration, gym membership bookings and marketing/events support - started her new role (which is also a brand new role for our gym) in the second week of January.
