National Initiative – Good Gym

A national initiative: Good Gym with around 23 across the UK and the Trust supported Good Gym in the Woking area. Good Gym links up runners with isolated older people.  The runners make weekly visits as part of their run, the older people become the “Running Coach”. It gives the runners a purpose and commitment and they often end up doing small chores such as bringing in a daily paper and they become a link to the outside world to housebound individuals simply by talking about the weather or what they saw on the way to the coach’s home.
