Double Olympic Gold Medalist, Dame Kelly Homes has had a lifelong interest in health and fitness. But for all professional athletes, they will have to face the reality that one day their sporting careers will come to a foreseeable end. So what's next?
Since retirement from athletics, Holmes set up the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust to support retired athletes like herself as they transition into post-sport life.
Now Future Fit Training will be partnering with the trust to help support young athletes. Staff will be volunteering over the coming year and Future Fit will be offering work experience to give to open up personal and career opportunities to selected individuals.
You can find out more about the trust on their website.
The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is a truly inspirational charity and we feel there is great synergy between us. We are already working with Kelly, who is about to complete her Level 3 PT Diploma with us, and have also trained one of the Trust’s mentors.
The Dame Kelly Holmes Trust is a charity that was set up in 2008 by double Olympic champion Dame Kelly Holmes. It supports retired athletes as they transition from sport, and uses their skills and experience to transform the lives of disadvantaged young people through mentoring programmes.
