Celebrating Transform3D Partners, The Hard Yard
As part of their Workplace Wellness offering, The Hard Yard has been running weekly fitness workouts at the Forward3D London HQ. The Hard Yard recruits talented and expert trainers from inside our London prisons, to lead high intensity workouts across London. We feel heartbroken about their announcement of closing this month. We want to celebrate their achievements and acknowledge the transformative and meaningful impact of their work at our company.
Founder Frankie Bennett launched The Hard Yard in 2016 following her time on the amazing Year Here postgraduate innovation programme. In an announcement, Frankie explains why The Hard Yard is closing it's doors at this time:
You can learn more about their story:
The Hard Yard hosted our Forward3D summer social in 2017, running a tailored sports day. They have been running workouts every Monday night for over a year and have supported staff who were training for the gruelling Tough Mudder event last year. We have been blown away by their dedication, their talent and their consistent encouragement and motivation of F3D staff to become their healthiest selves. With heavy hearts we wave goodbye to the team and feel it most saying goodbye to Lou, our weekly trainer. She has shown us how to transform our lives through fitness, calling it 'light work!' We can't wait to follow her as she soars in her fitness career.
As a company this sad news strengthens our resolve to do some good along the way. Through our philanthropic arm Transform3D, we will continue to support Year Here and other organisations to grow a steady stream of social enterprises that are testing and building solutions to tough social problems. It's just too important not to. Hard Yard are running their last week of workouts this week, you can sign up by clicking here.
