At Gymrun, we consider functional fitness development as a core foundation for all learning. Children with higher functional fitness enjoy improved readiness to learn – physical literacy – short-term wellness – long-term physiology – physical self-esteem.
In our modern world, low and declining fitness levels are a reality for too many children. The core purpose of Gymrun is to support a fitter future for every child. A bit like Yoga or CrossFit, Gymrun is an inclusive fitness philosophy, but designed for children.

The Gymrun Interventions provide teachers, coaches, trainers and parents with purposeful and targeted fitness solutions for every child.
Arrange a day for us to deliver the Gymrun Five Challenges to classes in your school or club, to gain a sense of what Gymrun is all about. This delivery can be combined with training to suit the needs of your organisation, making Gymrun delivery sustainable.
Since 2001, I have worked as a PE teacher, Head of PE, Personal Trainer and Director of Sport, driving transformative changes in state and independent schools. In this time, I have seen the positive impact of improved fitness on all areas of children’s lives. In 2016, I set up Gymrun to build an inclusive fitness legacy – forming innovative partnerships – in education, health and sports settings. I have found a way to do this that is fun, inclusive and purposeful. Gymrun was created with every child in mind, particularly those who are less active and less physically competent. It’s very important to me that Gymrun works effectively for these children.
