We believe that physically disabled people have the right to exercise in an accessible, safe and fun environment. Exercise has a number of physical and mental health benefits, this is no different for disabled people than it is for anybody else. With a focus on these positive benefits we want to create a gym atmosphere rather than a clinical atmosphere, whether this is in our online content or at our premises in Newcastle.
When we first opened our doors in 2018, under the name Pop-Up Gym, there was nowhere else in the north of England that provided a gym environment specifically for people with spinal cord injuries and other physical disabilities. In the short time that we have been trading, we have helped over one hundred people with various physical disabilities, to exercise, and our mission is to continue and grow.
