BIG Health at the Disability Resources Centre

BIG Health in Dunstable started working in partnership with the Disability Resources Centre in 2016. Our work with the Disability Resource Centre is overseen by Jude, and has made significant advancements in accessible exercise programmes and classes for people with disabilities. Not everyone is able to access a gym due to long term illness, age or disability. We have developed a range of classes designed to help those who might have limited mobility or movement. The Disability Resource Centre is home to an exercise space in Dunstable and we have developed a range of classes with them. The organisations both share an ethos of accessibility to those with disabilities, and are keen to see people empowered to grow on their own fitness journeys. We run a wide range of activities, including chair based classes, to meet people where they are and provide a place for community and exercise.

Wide Range of Classes

We run a range of classes that are accessible and inclusive, and work at a pace that is manageable. We found that many other personal trainers were unsure how to work with people who had physical disabilities, and our tailor-made training and ethos of accessibility is a perfect fit for the centre. We spend time understanding what people's needs are, and then ensure that fitness programmes are created to work with them, and not be intimidating. We are also happy to come and meet a potential client in their home, to talk them through the process, before they need to step foot in the Disability resource Centre, Dunstable gym.
