Welcome to The Fitness Community

The Fitness Community is a non-profit organisation providing expert personal training to people with mental health problems.

Our founder Matt Wolstenholme – a sufferer of depression himself – is a Master Trainer with more than a decade’s experience. He is also a record-breaking freestyle football athlete and knows first hand the life-changing impact exercise can have.

Through personal training, we aim to give people the skills and motivation to get in shape and boost their mental health.

Physical activity can help with:

• Reducing depression

• Managing stress and anxiety

• Boosting self-esteem

• Better sleep

You’d have to be a flat-earther to discount exercise as a potential means to help prevent and treat mental health.
