Welcome to Week 2 of our ‘Monster Race’ video diary!

This week we sat down with our Health & Activities Facilitator, Tim Wells, to find out the importance of motivation and what’s on the agenda for training week 2.

On Saturday 17th March, four young residents from the YMCA are taking part in the ‘Winter Monster Race’, one of the South West’s Best Obstacle Courses and Mud Runs.

As part of the challenge at Escot Park, residents have embarked on an eight-week fitness programme led by our Activities Co-ordinator, Tim Wells. The aim of the programme is to get our young men motivated in life, get fit and help with any problems around alcohol and smoking. The programme will also teach them about endurance, team work and how to build positive relationships.
