We are launching our new beginners Pilates class on Monday 6th September at St Gabrielle's Church Sunderland. Targeting our older participants but all ages welcome! Click on our timetable to book and pay.
After running our Seat to Street program in Millfield we decided (because it went so well) to take class in doors! We will be based at St Mark's Community Association every Wednesday at 10.30am. Join Jo for lot's of fun and exercise every week!

August 2021 WAS A GREAT ONE!! We have officially finished all of our Summer camps and we would like to thank every single one of you that attended. We were very lucky with the weather for the majority of the month and were able to do so many different activities and trips with the children. It was a pleasure to share our Summer being active with them all!
Over the past few months we have been visiting different areas in Sunderland and the Coalfields delivering our "Seat 2 Street" programme. We have been encouraging elderly members of the public to join in with our seated exercise class and join us for a cuppa afterwards! We are not finished yet and we have met so many incredible people. So big THANK YOU to Sunderland City Council for funding this project!
As Summer 2021 has come to an end we thought it would be a great idea to bring two of our Sunshine Project groups together to celebrate such a great few months. Our children from Sunshine camp and our older adults from Seat to the Street came together for a party in the park! We danced, laughed and ate ice cream...what more can you want?? Thank you again to Sunderland City Council for funding this project, we've had a blast!!
Our Lottery Community Funded classes have resumed at Broadway Youth and Community Centre. From Active Forever to Exercise & Play sessions we are certainly back with a bang. It has been great to see everyone again since the restrictions have been lifted and all of our members are loving getting back to normal. Check out our timetable to see what we have going on!
Wednesday 16th February 2021 we delivered 25 gift boxes contain special surprises to people in and around Sunderland. We visited some of our elderly isolated clients that are struggling with the pandemic, some local schools that have supported us through Covid and other community workers who like us have been working hard throughout the current situation we have been in since March 2020! We wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all these people. #bekind
"GOGA" stands for Get Out Get Active!
Each week we post a quick powerpoint on healthy eating into our private Facebook group. At the end of the week they get a little quiz to see what they've learnt about that topic. They've learnt the importance of eating a balanced diet, the truth behind sugar and the difference between good and bad FAT!
Families across Sunderland who have signed up to Active AIM will each week receive a food bag with a healthy food recipe. They then make the meal and give us their feedback in our private Facebook group. Each meal has gone down a storm and introduced the kids to foods they have never tried before!
Last but not least our families get a weekly online workout along with some activity cards. They each received a pedometer to count their steps too. The weekly exercises ranged from Kids Zumba, Glow fitness, Yoga and Fast Fitness workouts.
