Activating Tower Hamlets

Activating Tower Hamlets

The Great Outdoor Gym Company Activate (TGO activate) worked with Tower Hamlets to help residents get active using their existing 16 outdoor gyms.

Movement is an amazing medicine and the public health team are working alongside TGO activate to get the message into PCNs, doctors and housing associations across the borough.

We provided a series of classes on the outdoor gyms for a variety of needs. We also provided free digital classes for everyone to access via our app TGO activate.

We teamed up with a variety of trainers including Michael Traynor, Jahedul and Kesson Physio to offer various opportunites at the outdoor gyms.
