Welcome to Pro-Fitness Academy in the Community
We are the social enterprise branch of Pro Fitness Academy and offer a diverse range of communities the opportunity to access health, wellbeing, education and improved life-chances via our free community courses. Delivered by a team of highly trained lecturers, assessors, personal trainers, psychologists, doctors, dieticians and motivational speakers, we mentor, motivate, get active and create community leaders. Improving lives, job opportunities, health outcomes and the areas we live one street at a time.
This isn’t just about our health. Whilst our team of professionals come to talk to the community about healthy lifestyle habits, changes and choices that can transform lives, it’s also about improving opportunities to move into work and education. We offer bespoke and accredited academic and vocational courses improving education and advocating self-development and learning. We offer funded food provision and fitness programmes as well as health and wellbeing workshops.
All in, we aim to improve employment opportunities, minimise poverty, maximise motivation, deliver education and improve physical and mental health in areas of need and neglect. We are bringing back a sense of camaraderie and community, promoting a healthier and more prosperous future. Health and fitness in the community with Pro-fitness Academy. Come on in…

What we’re about
Pro Fitness in the Community courses are unique in that as well as working with socially excluded and ‘left-behind’ communities to access health, wellbeing, community leadership and friendship we offer a pathway into work via education.
So far in London and the South East we have worked in some of the most deprived areas to help women, young people and the black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) community transform their lives.
