Project title ‘PAC, physical activity community’
PAC4MEN, Wednesday. Outdoor small group training sessions for men with long term physical and/or mental health conditions. Bringing people together who are on a similar journey, to connect and work alongside each other, while being given permission to spend some time on their physical and emotional wellbeing. Using body weight exercises, resistance bands and light equipment, the participants can build a good strong relationship with their bodies as a tool to support their emotional health.
PACRUN. Thursday. A good run or workout after a tough day can help quieten the internal dialogue and reduce feelings of despair, which in turn can make us more productive to use exercise as a coping strategy in times of increased stress.
SOULRUN. Monday. Mixed gender running group, offering both beginner and progressive groups. Running with no pressure of time, pace or position.
These sessions will offer a safe space to explore ’emotional release and connection through physical activity’.
We are excited to announce that PAC has been awarded funding from the National Lottery Community Fund to allow this project to run until June 2024.
