Overview

MANFIT is Manchester Amputee Fitness Initiative which is funded by Manchester Sport and Leisure Trust, Back to Sport and The Douglas Bader Association. The age limit is over 18 years of age unless accompanied by an adult. Our aim is to give the participants confidence to get/keep fit and ultimately to integrate into main stream sports centres but they can continue attend Manfit sessions if they want to. Confidence follows on from the strength, stamina and flexibility that lead to better operation of the prosthesis. The social interaction together with exercise induced endorphin release also gives people confidence. The gym sessions are free and take place at The Manchester College (Openshaw Campus) fitness suite on Fridays 10.30-11.30am followed by a free lunch. A weekly exclusive swimming group takes place at Manchester Aquatics Centre on Tuesdays from 1.15 - 2.15pm in a private pool usually used by athletes. Entry fee £1.00. A weekly wheelchair and amputee tennis session takes place at the regional tennis centre near the Etihad stadium, Manchester from 11.00-12.00 every Wednesday costing £3.00 per session.
