“I have lost over 2 stone now and really enjoy coming to the Bulldogs. It’s more like a community centre rather than a gym, It’s changed my life. Mal told me that it was FREE for Armed Forces Veterans to use so I joined the Not so Fit Class where I could work at my own pace. It has really helped with my knee, it’s coming on leaps and bounds. Thanks guys”.
When I left school I had no direction, didn’t know what to do or where to go for help. I have really enjoyed the Bridges to a Brighter Future course, especially the Anatomy and Physiology side of things which I find really interesting. I am a bit more confident now and much more positive about all things in my life. The exercises I do here at The Bulldogs, learning how to box and being part of this group has helped with that. I am even thinking of taking part in a white collar event. I can now at least see myself working in the future which I couldn’t before”.
“My time at Bulldogs has given me many experiences, from running the assault course, walking up mountains and planning and delivering my first class.
I have gained so much confidence and new knowledge. I have met so many lovely people from the staff to the community. I couldn’t think of a better place to spend my time
““Bulldogs has helped me get off the streets and do something with my life otherwise I would be out fighting. Bulldogs has helped me come out with something after school – I have got my Level 1 Award in Personal Development through Physical Activities and a Level 1 Unit in Gym Based Activities and I have now started my Level 1 Fitness at College”.
“Coming here gives me a sense of belonging and I have a new found love for boxing. I feel fitter and more confident. The Bulldogs has helped turn my life around and I am much happier now”
