FOR THE NHS
#DoingOurBit is a platform of over 50 free workouts for NHS staff. Inspired by NHS keyworker Julie Davis, who wanted to support her colleagues with access to free fitness during lockdown and beyond, #DoingOurBit was created by leading fitness industry businesses Active IQ, Study Active and fibodo. Each gave their time generously and freely – as did all 40 PTs whose workouts are featured – to ‘give back’ and ‘do their bit’ to support the hardworking NHS.
#DoingOurBit launched in June 2020 to the Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust and its 10,000 staff. Word quickly spread and demand rose from NHS Trusts up and down the country: As of May 2021, 97 NHS trusts have signed up, giving over 575,000 NHS staff access to the free workouts.
Unique and personalised
Each #DoingOurBit workout is unique and personalised with the PTs wearing a #DoingOurBit t-shirt and giving a personal message of thanks. Every minute of every workout has been externally verified to ensure the highest level of safety, integrity and quality. This high standard and wide choice of workouts really make #DoingOurBit stand out. From yoga and Pilates to low impact and high impact sessions and core training to family fun, there really is something for all tastes and abilities here.
Growing and growing….
Interest continues to build and on September 14th #DoingOurBit was officially endorsed by the 'United by Birmingham 2022' programme which recognises grass-root projects having a positive impact on the community.
Julie’s aim is for everyone who works for the NHS to have access to this platform.
