EcoGains’ objective is to get you and the planet healthier by providing personal training with sustainability benefits. We want to lead a new wave of responsible business behaviour and create positive societal change.
We recognise that fitness trends do not appeal to all and that the health benefits of exercise are often lost in the noise that these create. Our training philosophy is to promote many aspects of fitness in order to improve your long-term health. At EcoGains, we are focussed on your goals and improving elements which may include: posture, balance, mobility, body composition, strength, stamina, immune system, sleep, cardiac health, flexibility; using an array of functional training techniques. Visit our Personal Trainers page for more information on our training ethos.
You will undergo an in-depth consultation process so that we can fully understand your motivations and barriers. We provide the guidance and training needed for you to achieve your training targets. You can train in your own home, making training extremely convenient. Through our trainers, you will learn the principles of exercise so that you can sustain your gain for years to come. Visit our Services page for more information on our offering and delivery.
We plant trees as you achieve your fitness targets
To provide our clients with extra motivation, EcoGains has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to create a sustainability focussed incentive scheme, where we plant trees as you reach your fitness goals, so that you can get your planet in better shape too. Eden Reforestation Projects currently operate in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, and Kenya. The trees that you earn provide positive environmental and human impacts by contributing to reforestation, animal habitat restoration and providing work for impoverished people. Visit our Partners page for more information on our partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects and to view our tree planting leader board.

EDEN REFORESTATION PROJECTS
EcoGains has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers as agents of global forest restoration. Eden Reforestation Projects currently operate in Nepal, Madagascar, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, and Kenya. They hire impoverished people to grow, plant, and guard to maturity native species forest on a massive scale. Their “employ to plant methodology” results in a multiplication of positive socio-economic and environmental measures.
By the year 2025, Eden Reforestation Projects aims to plant a minimum of 500 million trees each year and to offer hope through the employment of tens of thousands of people in countries where extreme poverty is rampant.
EcoGains Incentive Scheme
To provide our clients with extra motivation, EcoGains has created a sustainability focussed incentive scheme, facilitated through our partnership with Eden Projects. We plant trees as you reach and surpass your fitness goals so that you can get you and your planet in better shape.
