Fit Start

Fit Start is a healthy living club for people with a learning disability, which takes place every Wednesday from 4 to 6pm. The club night is held at Foresters Hall on Meeting Street in Ramsgate and is currently free to all.

At Fit Start, attendees can:

  • find out about leading a healthy lifestyle,
  • try new foods,
  • get the body moving with sport and exercise,
  • monitor their weight, heart rate and blood pressure, and
  • meet new people and try new things.

Running since April 2016, the club is led by a qualified training instructor from Motiv8 Sports and has already proven to help adults with a learning disability reduce their weight, heart-rate and blood pressure.

“The Club is challenging and you feel exhausted afterwards, but it’s so much fun!” – David, Fit Start Member

“I’ve learned that weekly exercise is good for you, so it’s great to do it at a place where everyone gets on so well.” – John, Fit Start Member

“It’s great to see that Fit Start is not only enjoyable for members, but is also having a positive impact on their health.” – Ellen, Senior Support Worker

Volunteer gets chest waxed to raise money for variety show
Tristan Kennedy, a staff member who volunteers at our drama club, recently got his chest waxed to raise money for next year’s variety show.
December will see Ramsgate’s healthy living club, Fit Start, reach their 30th week. Alongside Motiv8 Sports, we have facilitated over 600 hours of exercise.
In June, our Thanet drama group performed their 5th annual Variety Show to members of the public, including the Deputy Mayor of Margate, Cllr Rosamund Dixon.
