Since starting the classes I have trained many Turning point and Aspire service users at various venues and have seen a lot of changes in their behaviour.
I am so grateful for the opportunities that the Active Body Healthy Mind project has given me and I do feel so much better, in body and mind.
The activities I have experienced with Aspire have been great for me. Getting my fitness up & meeting new people has been excellent.
All activities were brilliant & it has been an amazing experience. It’s given me better relationships with my peers and I’m grateful to Jamie Hamilton & Racheal Torrance for involving us in this.
Doing these sports is a huge boost to my self-confidence and mental well-being, helps me to build a social network and improves my physical fitness which is growing every week.
