Members of The Gym, have raised over £50,000 for charity by moving more than 23 million metres during November.

The Gym Group, pioneers of low-cost no-contract 24/7 gyms in the UK, partnered with The Movember Foundation to help stop men dying too young.

Through the fitting partnership, which highlights the links between fitness and good physical and mental health, 100 gym locations across the UK inspired members to take on epic in-gym fitness challenges and raise funds.

During the campaign, which ran throughout November, The Gym Group engaged their community, by creating common goals and a fundraising purpose through in-gym challenges such as ’Row to the home of Mo,’ ‘Trek the Inca Trail,’ ‘Climb Mount Everest’ and ‘Run the marathon de Sables.’

The Gym Group CEO John Treharne said: “I couldn’t be prouder of our members and staff.

“Every person who got involved in the campaign, whether moving or donating, is actively helping men to live happier, healthier and longer lives and for that I am thankful.

“The facts and statistics about men’s health are staggering and the links between fitness and good mental & physical health are undeniable, that’s why we partnered with Movember.

“Just like The Gym Group, Move is for anyone, anywhere. It’s not about being the fittest or going the furthest. It’s about getting out there, having fun and doing good by raising funds along the way. It wasn’t about losing pounds – it's about raising them.”

The Movember Foundation funds game-changing health projects and research to tackle testicular and prostate cancer, mental health and suicide prevention. Their work helps men live happier, healthier and longer lives.
