Through Hatfield Town Council’s Keep Moving scheme, we are working alongside GP surgeries across Hatfield to curate a specialised referral service which is getting people into our Strength Boutique gym and boosting a sense of wellbeing and a passion for fitness. In collaboration with the NHS’s Primary Care Network, we’re aiming to promote a sense of active recovery and independence for those who are attending sessions with us via their GP.
Mpia is one of our attendees who has joined us via this scheme.
“I was recommended for this programme by my wife, who directed me to my GP. I joined to help with my health and effects of diabetes.
I have made improvements in my mental health by having a positive mindset through the people I have met at the gym, also my physical health has improved through my strength and me being more active. This is also through the help and encouragement of Pawel, the instructor.
The programme has helped me become more active and encourage me to cycle and walk to places more rather than driving.
I am incredibly grateful for the workers with their positive attitudes and showing how to use the equipment and benefit from the gym. The equipment in the Strength Boutique at Birchwood Leisure Centre was all brand new and was easy to use – especially for beginners!
After finishing this programme my life has changed for the better. My health has improved and I can now spend more time playing with my children and have better time with my family.”
