ABOUT beyond the bar
Strong in Mind & Body
Beyond the Bar: Fitness & Wellbeing (formerly The Happiness Bootcamp) is a community based studio using fitness classes, personal training & creative workshops to help with your mental wellbeing.
When setting up the studio, one thing hit us about the fitness industry, it is not accessible to all. With personal training sessions averaging between £30-£40 an hour, and public gyms feeling like an intimidating space with a lack of privacy, this means exercise is not accessible to people with mental health issues or low incomes.
We never want to charge those prices so have kept our prices low and opened a small private studio with 1 to 1 access. With all of our fitness classes being online on demand, anyone can join in a class at whatever time is best for them.
We want exercise and fitness to be accessible to as many people as possible.
Due to our lower prices, funding is always something we try to access to make sure we pay our fitness professionals fairly for their incredible work. We are constantly looking for support in funding or sponsorship from companies and businesses who also want to help us grow and expand to allow more people to access exercise.
I trained with Aimee for 6 weeks and gained so much confidence. Aimee is there to support you and push you towards your goal. She has changed me in so many ways. Not a lot of PT's would take so much time to focus on your strengths and not just your weaknesses.
