The Hard Yard
We train and employ ex-offenders to run tough prison workouts across London. Our trainers started out in small cells with no equipment so they know the power of their own bodyweight and a focused mind. They have transformed their lives using fitness and now they show Londoners how to do the same.
We want to see more people in work and out of prison longterm. We knew many people were leaving prison with fitness qualifications and a desire to work in the fitness industry in the future, but just 26% of prisoners found work on release. We want to see this change. Customers have their perceptions challenged of what someone who has been in prison is ‘like’ and equally other employers are realising that you can build a slick, sexy and successful business employing people who have been in prison.
