The Fit Seekers Program Gives Unemployed Job Seekers Free Gym Passes

Fit Seekers is a unique initiative, promoted by the Staffordshire Moorlands District Council, that aims to motivate unemployed folks to find work by giving them free gym passes and swimming pool access.

The initiative is open to Staffordshire Moorlands residents who are active work club attendees. The free gym passes can be used from 9 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday.

Gym memberships can be difficult or even impossible to maintain when you don't have a job, something that ends up having an adverse effect on the physical and mental health of the unemployed. The Fit Seekers initiatives ensures that people can stay physically and mentally strong whilst on the job hunt, while motivating them to continue their search for employment.
