Community Fitness Week
Welcome to Community Fitness Week
Community Fitness Week was a brand new initiative which launched in 2019 to raise awareness of community fitness and the instructors delivering sessions around the UK. Community Fitness can be anything from a Zumba Fitness class in your community centre, to a small walking group, to Pilates in the local primary school. Fitness can have such a huge impact on a community and helps build one. Besides the obvious fitness benefits, it also build social circles, removes barriers, and looks after mind and body
In 2019, the campaign supported over 380 food banks and saw a huge 125,000 meals donated by instructors all around the Country. 2020 has a mission of 500,000 meals and we need your help to make that happen!
How Does It Work?
From 5-11th of October, we will be asking community fitness instructors around the UK to join in our #fitnessforfood campaign and make the first Community Fitness Week a huge success. Each instructor will run their weekly sessions as normal, but will re-brand for one week with the Community Fitness Week branding. You will ask your participants to bring a non perishable item of food to donate to the class they attend. At the end of the week you will be able to deliver the items to your local food bank to help your community on a bigger scale
What Does It Cost To Join?
What Will I Need To Do?
Shout from the hills, get as many people through your doors as possible, then at the end of the week, you will need to complete a simple electronic questionnaire of 5 multiple choice questions so we can show the impact we are all creating
How Many Classes Do I Need To Run?
Minimum 1 throughout the week. We have deliberately suggested that instructors do this as an addition to their normal class week to prevent any additional work. You may of course turn it in to the huge extravaganza which we hope it is and go wildly over the top. You do not need to run your class for free or at a lower cost if you do not wish too. We do ask you to ask your participants to support the #fitnessforfood campaign during the week.
Do You Provide Any Support?
YES!!! We will provide you with a digital support pack 8-10 weeks before the event. this will include, social media graphics, press releases for your local newspaper and some other goodies. You will be able to purchase a Community Week tshirt from our website if you wish. We will also supply the link for a facebook private support group for all instructors taking part
