Ivo founded GoodGym after realising that exercise and doing good for the community didn't have to be mutually exclusive. After a year or so of thinking, testing and developing ideas, the project was submitted to Social Innovation Camp in December 2008.
The project was rapidly developed by a wonderful team of people and won first prize. Following this, GoodGym grew a steering group and put together a pilot project to prove the concept and its potential impact in Tower Hamlets.
Ivo is driven to help the community and more specifically help improve the state of loneliness and isolation amongst the elderly. GoodGym makes a contribution to improving the quality of life for older people and now have a community of over 1,200 runners with many different motivations for getting involved.
