We have been working with ex servicemen since 2016 when we delivered a project to up skill ex service men who had left the armed forces. We trained and qualified 24 ex servicemen to not only become personal trainers but to also start their own businesses within the fitness industry.
Since that project we have continued to engage and retained ex servicemen on a weekly basis with our services. 78% of our beneficiaries are ex servicemen or still serving.
We predominantly deliver exercise referral programs which has the aim of primarily improving the serving, ex-serving and veterans physical health and secondly improving their mental health. During lockdown our armed forces beneficiaries found a love for cycling and we were able to continue their programs and limit the harsh effect of their conditions through accessible cycling activities.
