Gym launches mental health classesStuart | YLF
One of MK’s newest gyms, énergie Fitness at Kiln Farm, has launched a new course of fitness classes specifically aimed at targeting mental health.
Teaming up with mental health and well-being expert, Paula Sweet, the gym now offers its members a five-week course where they can learn how to take steps to a more positive mind set and to a healthier more active life.
With qualifications in Hypnotherapy, NLP, Counselling and CBT, Paula has tailored a bespoke course for energie Fitness, Milton Keynes and uses a range of skills from relaxation techniques, mindfulness and hypnotherapy through the programme.
“We believe we’re the first gym in Milton Keynes to offer this service to help improve our members mental well-being as well as physical fitness,” says Rob Francis, owner of energie Fitness, MK. He added: “Mental illness is a growing concern and isn’t just happening to one type of person, it can affect people from all backgrounds, ages and social circles. It can take many forms, from stress at work to depression or anxiety. We are endeavouring to equip our members with the tools to help manage and reduce the incidence of these issues”.
“By providing this service we want to help people overcome barriers and lead a happier more fulfilling life.”
Energie runs a unique ”émpower” programme which finds out about its members in detail, such as how much energy they have, how well they sleep and how well they cope with stress. This initial process, along with taking body measurements, weight, fat and muscle mass readings, allows the team to create a bespoke training program for their members’ needs.
The team then guide the members through their bespoke work out, provide PT consultations to train them and to make sure that the work out suits their needs and expectations. The members are then given food diaries so that the team can provide bespoke advice and guidance on changes that can be made to help complement the training.
It takes between four and six weeks before members are then reassessed with measurements and well-being factors all measured again.
“Everyone sees results”, says Rob. “In fact, we are so confident that our members will feel fitter, stronger and more healthy, that we guarantee that they will see results and all we ask from them is three half hour commitments a week!”
The mental well-being course compliments our empower programme brilliantly and is free to our Wow members, included in the membership. If you are interested to find out more call the gym on 01908 410760.
