Description

Fitness In Mind™ Brentwood

Fitness In Mind™ Brentwood is a fully funded health and wellbeing course which will take you on a journey to identify, understand and redefine your attitudes and behaviours towards mental, social and physical wellbeing. Our friendly team will support and motivate you to overcome barriers and help lead a healthier lifestyle.

The programme runs over 12 weeks, where you will receive access to our exclusive exercise classes run by professional coaches and experienced peer support workers. We will greet you at the door to help relieve any anxiety, and will support you emotionally before, during and after the class.

It’s completely free to take part and we will support you and help in whatever way we can. We aim to provide a unique environment where physical activity & peer support work together.




Who’s it for?

The short answer, everybody!

We understand that getting active when you’re not feeling great isn’t easy. Fitness In Mind™ Brentwood is an award winning initiative designed to encourage and provide physical activity as an aid for mental and social wellbeing. We will help you to get the ball rolling and build enough motivation and confidence to carry on being active beyond our 12 week programme.

Fitness In Mind™ Brentwood is an inclusive programme. So whether its school stress, work anxiety, a physical or learning disability, or a diagnosed mental health condition, we are here to help you exercise in a friendly, stigma free environment.

Our programme is for everyone aged 16 & upwards (13 if accompanied by a guardian), and you don’t need any level of fitness to take part.




What classes are available?

Below is our current timetable running between October & December 2017. We aim to provide a range of activities 6 days a week. You can choose to attend as many of the classes as you like. We put the individual before the activity, not the other way around, so we promise you’ll have fun whether you are a complete novice or an experienced pro. We provide our coaches with Mental Health First Aid training, so they will always have an inclusive approach and are mindful of everybody’s emotional needs.

Our current timetable can be found below; alternatively you can visit the Brentwood Centre website for more detailed class descriptions by clicking here.

When can I start?

Our programmes run for 12 weeks at a time, we recommend individuals to start on week 1 in order to gain the most benefit from the programme. However we will provide as much support as we can to help individuals start as soon as they feel ready.




Do I need to be referred?

Short answer, No!

Whilst Basildon & Brentwood Clinical Comissioning Group are one of our valued partners and encourage a number of primary and secondary health services to refer to our programme for its therapeutic benefit, individuals can also sign up directly with us. You do not need a formally diagnosed disability or mental health condition to be eligable for this programme.
