Welcome to #DoingOurBit
Created by the NHS for the NHS, #DoingOurBit is a free fitness platform offering a wide range of bespoke workouts gifted by carefully selected PTs and fitness instructors. The workouts are accessible, friendly and welcoming with plenty for beginners. Devised in lockdown, this genuine and heartfelt gift to the hard-working NHS community is set to stay long into the future.
#DoingOurBit started as a ‘passion project’ during the Covid-19 pandemic when Julie Davis, Deputy Chief Operating Officer at the Clinical Research Network West Midlands, wanted to support her 190 colleagues by giving them access to free fitness sessions. Her neighbouring Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust heard about this and wanted to share with its 10,000 staff. All of a sudden, Julie needed a bigger platform, additional expertise and help.
Leading fitness industry businesses Active IQ, Study Active and fibodo quickly stepped up. Sharing Julie’s vision, they helped to create #DoingOurBit which launched in June 2020. Today, over 100 NHS trusts have signed up, giving over 600,000 NHS staff access to the free workouts.
