Boxercise sessions to promote physical and mental wellbeing are being launched in Luton by the Trust in partnership with Active Luton.

The ‘Mindful U’ classes will take place every Wednesday from 1.30pm-2.30pm at Lewsey Sports Park, Pastures Way, Luton, LU4 0PF, with the first session taking place on Wednesday 24th October.

Visitors will spend the hour receiving non-contact boxing training from a qualified trainer to develop their physical fitness.

The session is followed by the chance to relax with tea and biscuits, and speak informally with a mental health professional who can discuss ways to maintain mental health wellbeing. They will also help by advising on further mental health support available in the town if needed.

The boxercise class is open to anyone 18 or older living or working in Luton.

Mindful U has been launched by the Trust’s Luton Mental Health and Wellbeing Service and Active Luton which runs Luton’s leading leisure centres.

“If you are over 18 and want to improve your fitness levels, socialise and improve your mental wellbeing then we would love to see you at our Mindful U activities,” said Steve Muggridge, Health Development Coordinator for Luton Mental Health and Wellbeing Service.

“They will be fun, engaging and tiring – in a good way!”
