follow site Heard of the Hard Yard yet? It’s an inspirational new fitness movement that trains and employs ex-offenders to lead tough workouts, all inspired by their own ingenious ways of keeping in shape while stuck in a cramped prison cell.
http://deirdreverne.com/news/page/26/ Next week, The Hard Yard is bringing its gruelling boydweight-based regime direct to Old Street station for a unique pop-up – we’re talking 30 workouts in 7 days. The best bit is that you can buy an unlimited package, attend as many sessions as you can sweat through and go from wheezy to winning in a week… for the ludicrously low price of £35. Perfect if you’re still looking to lose those extra summer pounds or kickstart your fitness.
Besides the tough training regime, attending a workout with The Hard Yard is also about social action. Your fees go towards creating training and employment opportunities for ex-offenders who are typically excluded from the job market due to stigma and discrimination. And for double the impact, you can refuel after your session with energy balls (all natural, gluten-free and vegan) made by Bad Boys Bakery – another social enterprise supporting people with convictions to turn their lives around. We guarantee the whole experience will have you buzzing all day.
We are so proud to have partnered with the Bad Boys Bakery inside Brixton Prison. The guys in the Bakery made us these amazing energy balls – perfect for a postworkout refuel, all natural, raw ingredients + gluten free/vegan friendly too. This sour cherry energy bomb is a blend of nuts, seeds, spices + dried cherries. If you’re training with us this weekend we’ll bring some along for you to try 🍒
