    When I first started the gym last summer I was given a 'gp referral' I had gone to my gp and as I needed to lose weight she suggested I go to the gym.
    The gp referral is basically just 24 reduced price gym sessions. I think I paid £2.75 a session.

    Other than that I dont really know.

    I live in a small village and we have a organisation that gives money to people in the village that need/deserve things. I asked and they have paid for my gym membership and sessions for a year which is nice of them. Maybe you have something similar to this where you live?

    We have several gym/affiliations in the local area that provide discounts for less fortunate. I think people in receipt of benefits get the membership for half price, along with disabled people that get membership for a quater of the price. It could be worth asking a few gyms in the area. Might even be worth seeing if the GP will refer you in writing and see what comes from that?
