Gym Buddies at Train Together Lancaster!

Train Together work alongside Positive Futures North West to offer a unique Gym Buddy service to the residents of Lancaster and the surrounding areas.

Do you want to join a gym but worried that it might not be for you? You’re not alone! We often speak with individuals who, perhaps like yourself, find gyms intimidating. We want to use this opportunity to tell you about us, and how we are different from other gyms.

At Train Together we are a small, very friendly fitness studio. In October 2014, we introduced the Gym Buddies scheme to Train Together. The Gym Buddies offer support if going to the gym on your own is not feasible.

Our Gym Buddies are all volunteers who have been fully vetted, trained and supervised by (initially) Lancashire Care Foundation Trust and now Positive Futures North West. They are all fully qualified Gym Instructors and/or Personal Trainers. They have a keen interest in health and fitness, are familiar with the gym and its equipment, are very friendly and approachable, and they can empathise with your situation! Our Gym Buddies are there to welcome you to the gym, help you to use the equipment, make sure you feel comfortable and even workout with you if you wish!

Our Gym Buddies are onsite at Train Together every week on the following days/times:

  • Monday 10:15am – 12:00pm
  • Wednesday 10:15am – 12:00pm
  • Friday 3:15pm – 5:00pm

The Gym Buddies will meet you at the Positive Futures reception on the White Cross Business Park. This is located alongside the canal, just past the White Cross pub. Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes before the session is due to start.
