The team in the Sports Centre is leading the way in promoting men’s health this Movember.

The Movember campaign aims to raise awareness and support for men's health issues including mental health, suicide prevention, testicular and prostate cancer. Click here to find out more about Movember.

Monday "Walk & Talk" with the APA Team:

Join the team at the Sports Centre, every Monday in November at 10am for a walk and talk, followed by a coffee back at the Sports Centre. Walk and Talk is open to the people we support, staff and Sports Centre members.

It's a fantastic way to promote mental health and wellness in a relaxed and friendly environment. No sign up needed, just show up on Monday at the Sports Centre.

Wednesday Weightlifting Sessions:

Join one of our experienced personal trainers every Wednesday at 6pm for a weightlifting session designed for all levels of training experience. The 40-minute session will focus on correct lifting techniques and explore external factors that can affect men's mental health. We will provide information about the importance of lifestyle choices, diet, and sleep in physical performance. This initiative aims to not only enhance physical strength, but also provide valuable insights into holistic health and its connection to mental wellness.

For Sports Centre members and evening APA members only.

Booking is required and can be done directly on the FitSense App (no more than 7 days in advance).

Best Movember Moustache Competition:

For those willing to fully embrace the spirit of Movember, we are looking to find the best Movember moustache in Stewarts Care! Grow a moustache this month and you could be in with a chance of winning 3-months free gym membership.

The competition is open to current Sports Centre members, the people we support, staff and members of the public.

It's a fun way to raise awareness for men's mental health while showcasing your creative facial hair designs!
