The Welsh Sports Association (WSA) is happy to announce that Good Boost have joined the organisation as an Associate Member.  

Good Boost started as a community health research project in public swimming pools in Oxford, England. Since then, they have pioneered the co-design and development of technology for personalised therapeutic exercise and rehab, on land and in water to transform any leisure centre, gym or swimming pool into a community health & wellbeing hub.  

Good Boost launched as a social enterprise in 2018 with the ambition to create more accessible and affordable options for people living with joint conditions and wider long-term health conditions to have more options that combines the practical, emotional and support for effective supported self-management.  

They work in partnership with community, leisure and health teams to create community-delivered therapeutic exercise and wellbeing programmes, following a human and experience-centred approach. All their solutions are co-designed and co-produced with beneficiaries and stakeholders to create solutions that are fit-for-purpose, creating local health and wellbeing services.  

The organisation’s mission centres around supporting people to love looking after their health and wellbeing by moving more, having fun and feeling better.  

As an Associate Member, they will look for WSA support in showcasing the evidence that their work improves long-term health conditions while pushing the case for greater investment into Leisure from Health budgets.    

Good Boost CEO, Ben Wilkins, commented:  

“We’re delighted to be accepted as a member of the WSA to work alongside them in the role of leisure, gym, pool and community sports facilities to be transformed to deliver health & wellbeing services alongside sports, fitness and exercise.  

“Good Boost is working across many venues in the south of Wales, and we’re working with partners to grow our mission to ensure that any space can be a therapeutic place, supporting more people throughout the nation to have access to supported self-management for a wide range of joint, pain and long-term health conditions.” 

Andrew Howard, CEO of the WSA, added: 

“Physical activity has significant health benefits for hearts, bodies and minds so the impact that our sector can bring to the health and wellbeing of the Nation is undeniable. The WSA is committed to ensuring that sport and leisure is appropriately considered and invested in, so collectively in sport and leisure, we can achieve our goals for a Healthier Wales.
