“It is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps the mind in vigour.” 

Marcus Tullius Cicero

Participating in regular exercise contributes to better mental wellbeing, increased self-esteem, and reduces anxiety and depression. It also creates a great sense of community and reduces the feeling of loneliness. With all of these afflictions on the rise in a post-COVID world, providing easy access to fitness classes will help you build a stronger and happier workforce.

In a corporate environment, this translates to strengthened relationships, creates a sense of belonging, and contributes to the company’s culture – all things that people look for, now more than ever, when considering their employer.

At BAMA, we have created a unique atmosphere in our locations in South London, as well as online during lockdown, in parks, in group sessions, training families, in schools and in corporate settings. We can accommodate a variety of schedules, group sizes and fitness levels, and put the focus on healthy lifestyles and holistic wellbeing, creating an inclusive and supportive environment for everyone. You provide the space, we provide the rest!
