In a pioneering move to prioritise women's health in Mumbai's bustling slums, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) is set to launch a unique project a 'Gym on Wheels.' Spearheaded by Mumbai's Guardian Minister, this initiative aims to cater to the fitness needs of housewives and working women who often neglect their well-being amid hectic daily routines. The project is currently in its final stage.It involves transforming buses into mobile gyms equipped with fitness facilities, driven by a female driver, accompanied by a female attendant, and featuring an in-house female fitness trainer.On-The-Go Fitness For WomenThe 'Gym on Wheels' project is strategically designed to address the health concerns of women in Mumbai's slum pockets. Recognising the challenges posed by the modern lifestyle, where prioritising health becomes a daunting task, especially for working women and housewives, the BMC's innovative solution involves daily rotations of the mobile gym across different neighbourhoods. Each locality visited by the bus will have its dedicated time slot, ensuring accessibility for women seeking to incorporate fitness into their routines.Female Empowerment At The CoreWith an investment of Rs 75 lakh for bus modification and Rs 1.42 crore allocated for maintenance over the next three years, the BMC is committed to making health and fitness accessible to all. The project introduces a novel approach to fitness and emphasises female empowerment by having an all-female team on board. From the driver navigating through the city streets to the fitness trainer guiding exercises, the 'Gym on Wheels' initiative is poised to make a significant impact on the well-being of women in Mumbai's underserved communities. As the project gears up for its pilot launch next month, it holds the promise of transforming the health landscape for women in the dynamic metropolis.
