Following on from the success of our FitKnight programme, we formed a new partnership with York MIND in order to launch of FitKnight Lite programme. This programme brings men and women together, who may lack a little confidence around their health and fitness.

Our FitKnight Lite sessions will offer a space to share hints & tips on improving health and well-being, followed by fun exercise sessions. The sessions are run in blocks of 8 weeks aiming to build on each week to provide safe and welcoming sessions.

A typical session will consist of a warm-up, main component, and cool-down.  These sessions are tailored to suit the needs of individuals, as such, group feedback is welcomed. We will do our best to provide something for everyone, so that everyone enjoys the classes.

This programme is suitable for beginners or those who have not been in consistent exercise regime for a period of time and looking to ease themselves back into a more active lifestyle.

Due to the current situation sessions will now take place online.

Places are free of charge but with limited availability, as such booking in advance is essential. To book please email
