Gfitness has been providing exercise and well being services to the UK care sector since 2008, as of 2020 Gfitness is supporting over 1500 care providers around the country.

Our services to care homes have prices to suit all activity budgets and content that is accessible to all ability levels.
Recognising the increasing impact of dementia and other conditions that affect cognitive capacities within care; all Gfitness team members receive specialist training to help support the delivery of content to people affected by these types of conditions. Our services can be tailored for each care home including group sessions and one to one time spent with individual residents.
Services to care homes include group exercise sessions with content such as movement to music, strength and mobility work, balance and falls prevention, brain games to promote cognitive stimulation, adapted Tai-Chi and Yoga, massage, holistic therapy and physiotherapy. In addition Gfitness can also offer support to care homes in relation to diet and nutrition with our specialist Dietitian.
We have a range of prices that vary based on the service required and location of each home around the UK. We do offer a free taster session of our group content for care homes, their residents and service users to try before deciding if this is something that they would like again. To receive a quote from us or book a free taster session please contact us or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can also provide training sessions for staff and residents to help reduce falls risks in homes and the community. This also includes ‘Care Home Falls Assessments’ to evaluate and improve the prevention and management of fall risks. Please contact email@example.com for this service and further details.
“Lea has been visiting Newstead House since January this year, where she has provided our residents with a fitness programme. It has proved to be very successful encouraging some of our residents to move around with confidence and has strengthened their core muscles. It is also great fun and is adapted to their abilities so they can all join in. It was also approved by CQC as they were visiting the home during a session.”

“Tanya comes to our home twice a week and is a breath of fresh air. She is always able to anticipate what the residents want from her be it exercise with music or just gentle massage. The atmosphere in the home really lifts whenever she is here and we all look forward to her visits, staff and residents alike. I can highly recommend her and would definitely have her here more often if I possibly could.”

"I would just like to say a huge thank you for sending Lauren here this afternoon, her class was very much enjoyed by all that attended. Lauren was able to engage with all the residents present and to be honest there was a very varied skills level so I would like to congratulate her on that. I will be in touch for future classes, once again thank you for a very enjoyable fitness session."
