The Compound Wellingborough was set up in 2013 to give people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicity, a chance to take part in physical and mental training with a difference.
People from areas of deprivation were given access to a form of exercise that not only benefits them physically but also mentally. Calisthenics has had a positive impact on people’s lives, from youngsters who have now qualified coaches to those who are now leading a positive lifestyle – all through Calisthenics and personal development. Some of these young people are now volunteering and teaching others.
The Compound Wellingborough raised funds through various fundraising activities to build a calisthenics rig in a local park for the local people. This rig has helped break down barriers and bring people together from all walks of life, leading to positive outcomes.
