Feel Good Friday
Feel Good Friday is on 29th September 2017, one of the official sponsored events of National Fitness Day. Participants across all 5 Gym Plus clubs will work together in an attempt to cycle round the world in just one day.
This is your chance to jump on one of our state of the art Keiser exercise bikes and pedal a few miles in aid of Cycle Against Suicide. Aside from doing your good deed for the day, everyone taking part can enter a draw to win a year’s free membership!
How to get involved:
- Register your interest on the form below.
- Show up at your nearest Gym Plus on the 29th. Feel free to bring supporters and friends who fancy a go with you.
- Chuck your loose change in the collection bucket so it doesn’t weigh you down.
- Pedal as far as you can in 30 minutes, or longer if you want to.
- At the end of your session, the distance will be added to the tally and your name entered into a draw for a year’s free membership.
- We’ll let you know how far round the world the challengers got after the event.
Spectators, supporters, those interested in the cause, passers by, everyone is just as welcome as the participants, so even if cycling isn’t your thing then pop along. We’d love to see you.

About Cycle Against Suicide
Cycle Against Suicide is an initiative started by Irish entrepreneur, Jim Breen, as a result of his appearance on RTE’s Secret Millionaire programme. The main objective of the Cycle is to raise awareness of the considerable help and supports that are available for anyone battling depression, self harm, at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide.
The Cycle creates a very tangible and practical opportunity for people who want to help support those who are affected by suicide. Together, shoulder to shoulder, we can Break the Cycle of Suicide in Ireland!
The 2018 Main Cycle takes place between Sunday, April 28th and Monday, May 7th.
It’s OK not to feel OK; and it’s absolutely OK to ask for help.
