I've seen and still see the other side of gym goers. don't get me wrong I love my quick gym classes but I get so frustrated when I see others pushing themselves to the utter limit, living on protein shakes and wondering why they feel so down and out and exhausted. a quick walk in the fresh air can sometimes just be enough for 1 day. some people have forgotten how to relax too unfortunately.

You touch on some great topics in this! What's really interesting is working in the fitness industry how difficult it is to work within this gp referral scheme is actually really difficult. It's actually one of my real interests. There are only selected gyms who run this referral scheme they don't really advertise it for obvious reasons they don't get as much money and you're totally correct that gps aren't linked with appropriate trainers. Many people who would benefit also have such high anxieties of leaving the house and social anxiety about going to a gym it no longer becomes a benefit and they'd benefit from a mobile trainer to visit in their home like you'd have a community physio, unfortunately many of these people simply cannot access the resources because they don't really exist and the ones that do are far to out of the price preach. it's an unfortunate circle and mental health is such an overlooked aspect of health by us all. Thanks for raising awareness!
