The Fitness Unit

The Fitness Unit is based in Ipswich and like other gyms and leisure centres across the country, they were forced to close as a result of the lockdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

When the Fitness Unit closed, Rachel, Anita, Brian, Sean and Nina all stepped up to ensure that their clients were still supported to stay active and be connected. The team delivered online zoom classes for members and made them accessible to all by allowing clients to go back and replay or take part at a time that suited them.

One member said:

"The support and encouragement during this time has been amazing!"

In addition to the support the team offered their clients, they also worked tirelessly in the background to ensure they had a safe return once they were given the go ahead to re- open the doors.

"Now we are back in the gym, the set up and extra precautions are all in place. Everything is well explained before we start each session and the team deserve a big WELL DONE"

Despite a testing time, it is clear that the Fitness Unit went above and beyond to support, encourage, and advise their clients offering the best service they possibly could, against the odds. One member said:

"I'm probably the fittest & happiest I have been for a long time and it's all because of the support I have received from the whole team at the Fitness Unit!"

Well done! It is clear that this team are all deserving of the title of Lockdown Activity Heroes!
