Temporary COVID—19 Measures

Unfortunately, we have had to close the warehouse gym. While we had hoped to be able to provide a space where our members can come along to work out individually; due to COVID and the recurring issues with the building, remaining open at this time is not possible.

Lockdown activities

We have worked hard to launch additional online fitness and yoga activities. We have listened to your feedback and have started to add more activities, such as Barbells, Yin and Intermediate Yoga.

Projekt 42 Academy is CIMPSA endorsed and focusses on delivering only the Level-2 Gym Instructing and Level-3 Personal Training courses.

We’ve chosen to do this to ensure we can provide the support our students need to become great trainers.

We teach our Level 2 and 3 students to take a different approach to supporting clients to reach their fitness goals.

We’re teaching the next generation of personal trainers to focus not only on fitness but on behaviour change, education, better habits, and the understanding that great health and fitness is a lifelong pursuit of strengthening the connection between mental health and physical fitness.

All Projekt 42's qualifications include a personalised learning plan that is designed around the learners availability and learning needs.

To find out about starting work towards a Level 2 Gym Instructor and Level 3 Personal Trainer qualification email the team at academy@projekt42.co.uk

Projekt 42

Projekt 42 is the UK’s first wellness centre to combine personal training, group fitness, yoga and mental health services – all in one membership subscription. We make booking to see a Person Centred Counsellor, Cognitive Behavioural Therapist or Psychotherapist as easy as booking a fitness class. Our aim is to help communities see and understand the connection between their physical fitness and their mental health and the need to take care of both.

We are different to most commercial gyms. We have no shareholders and we employ a circular revenue system where up to 40% of the membership fee that people pay to access our services goes towards paying for community members to access free and part-funded counselling, free monthly memberships and community programs. We opened in 2017 with four volunteers and now have a team of over 100 people working together to help as many of our community members access fitness, yoga and mental health services.

We use the profit that would ordinarily go to private shareholders to do the following:

  • Deliver over 150 hours of fitness, yoga and meditation classes each week. Everyday there are a number of free activities from fitness to yoga, and class prices starting from £1.50
  • Work towards reducing the barriers families face when accessing physical fitness and mental health activities by delivering family activities, allowing children to participate in classes and having an on-site crèche staffed by a childcare practitioner
  • Have a team of 40+ counsellors, psychotherapists and Cognitive Behavioural Therapists working alongside our fitness team. We provide funded counselling sessions to anyone who applies via our self-referral application form. For the most vulnerable people in our community, access to our counselling service is free and for those that can contribute, our subsidised price per session starts at just £7.50.
  • Provide support and funding for people to train towards completing fitness industry qualifications and support towards gaining employment

Become a Trustee

Projekt 42 is looking to recruit five new Trustees to join the current Board, replacing two retiring members. In a voluntary capacity, the Trustee will attend all Board meetings either online or in-person in Edinburgh.

This is an exciting opportunity for candidates to assist in the progression of the charity and its activities. In particular, Projekt 42 is seeking candidates with experience in the third sector, people who have the experience of working with vulnerable adults, specifically in areas of mental health, accountancy and finance to complement the current Board experience. Sound knowledge of financial governance in the charity sector would also be of benefit.
