GoodGym is on its way to Swindon!

GoodGymGood Gym Logo is on its way to Swindon!   GoodGym Group Runs are all about a group of volunteers running to a location to do a good deed for an organisation, for example painting a school hall or litter picking in a local park.

The meeting point will be the Oasis Leisure Centre every Tuesday evening at 6pm, which therefore means that the ‘good deeds’ will need to be within a 2-3-mile radius from the Oasis.

We now need some help trying to find some organisations that need our support for a physical task in the community.

We would love to hear from you if you have an organisation in mind within Central Swindon that would benefit from the GoodGym Group Runs.

If you have any ideas please email Emma Sperring ESperring@swindon.gov.uk or ring her on 07341 077580

Do Good, Get Fit

A group of people are beginning the process of setting up GoodGym in Swindon. Can you help make it happen?

What's GoodGym?

Forget the gym, we get fit by doing good. Our community of runners and qualified trainer will help you achieve your fitness goals by doing physical work that helps your community.


"Can’t tell you enough how two weeks of Good Gym have already added so much to my life mate, and I’m feeling fit as a fiddle"

- Tom, runner

Run for the community

We run and clear land for a community gardens, move rubble and tidy community centres. Group runs are regular, sociable and open to all abilities. 
Have a look at what we've done on group runs so far.



Get fit helping older people

GoodGym members get sent one-off missions for such as clearing gardens, changing lightbulbs and doing odd-jobs for older people who struggle to do them alone. You run there, fix the problem, and run back again.



Be a hero
