Take the Big Bag

Mission-driven Personal Training

Prices & policies

SLIDING SCALE FEES POLICY

My pledge:

• I don’t want financial hardship to be a barrier to accessing fitness and movement. I recognise that fitness and movement may be of most significance to people who feel the least able to afford it.
• Big Bag Training stands for the principle of ‘from each according to their means (give what you can genuinely afford), to each according to their need (take what you need, or help someone else to)’.
