About Fit N Well
Fit N well is a counselling service that supports young people aged 14 to 25 who are facing mental health challenges. Fit N Well uses a unique and world-first approach, utilizing physical exercises as a therapeutic technique in a gym-based setting. Clients who access Fit N Well are able to explore personal and mental health challenges that are preventing them from reaching their full potential. The environment at Fit N Well is aimed at supporting young people who may not fit in to traditional talk based therapies and are seeking a more active and physical form of therapy to explore their world and the challenges they face.

Anthony Started Fit N Well with one mission and focus.
“To ensure every young person has access to a service that works for them”
Through his work within the education sector, he observed that not all people fit in to traditional talk-based therapies. Fit N Well has been opened to support people who may struggle to find their words and feel more comfortable being active and moving in their sessions.
