Coronavirus Update: 3rd November 2020

Move the Masses is monitoring the current government guidelines and WHO recommendations closely, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. This statement will be updated as and when the guidelines change. 

You can view the latest guidelines here.

Our mission is to improve wellbeing through movement and we are constantly assessing the ongoing situation to ensure we can do this as safely as possible.

Another core function of Move the Masses is reducing social isolation and loneliness, we understand that the current guidelines will directly affect vulnerable people and those experiencing isolation and loneliness and are doing everything we can to continue operating our services within the guidelines.

All pop-up fitness sessions and group walks from Thursday 5th 2020 are cancelled 

We will contact everybody who is signed up to any of our sessions or activities. Sessions on Wednesday 4th will go ahead as planned.

We will however, be running virtual workouts which people can follow along from the safety of their own homes. More details will be published shortly.
