“Inspiring Others to Inspire Each Other”
What do we do?
Street Fit Scotland is a Health, Fitness and well being programme aimed at socially disadvantaged adults.
We deliver a holistic health, fitness and well-being programme for people affected or experiencing homelessness.
Our programme welcomes anyone who is living in homeless hostels, temporary accommodation, bed and breakfast or vulnerably housed. We aim to reduce social isolation, improve mental health as well as address long-term physical health needs. Our programme offers a variety of workshops that are around peer support, group work, diet nutrition, confidence building and raising self esteem.
How do we do it?
We use physical fitness sessions as a tool to improve our participants general health and well being. We offer comprehensive fitness sessions delivered by a qualified fitness coach each session lasts 1 hour followed by a healthy lunch in our community room. All fitness sessions are adapted to the individual needs of the group at the time. These sessions include boxercise circuits, high intensity aerobic and resistance based exercise, indoor and outdoor. Our sessions are fun, free and fantastic. We keep the participant focused on the positive side of life while getting Fitter, Healthier and Stronger both mentally and physically.
All participants learn to work as part of a team in a supportive environment that aims to raise their aspirations.
There are also opportunities for the participants to inspire others by becoming peer mentors.
Street Fit Scotland will provide peer mentoring training to the identified peer mentors who are on the programme who wish to further advance themselves.
