The No Bull HQ gym in Melbourne held a fundraising and awareness-raising event for the Australian Men’s Health Forum (AMHF) on Saturday 17th November.
The event was held in the run up to International Men’s Day with the money raised from the gym’s 9am “bootcamp” being donated to AMHF.
Daniel Daou, the Head Coach and Owner of No Bull Gym, says:
“I guess the reason why I held this event is because men's mental health needs to have more awareness. Men need to know that it's ok to speak to someone when we're not feeling ok, instead of trying to bottle everything up.
“A lot of us are too scared to speak up about our mental health because some may feel they'll be perceived as weak, when in fact speaking up is the best thing to do.
”A lot of people close to me have suffered from a mental health issues including myself. So I just want to make it something that we as a society are more aware of. And if I can help just one person change themselves for the better, than I know we're doing the right thing.”
The No Bull HQ gym bootcamp consists of high Intensity strength and conditioning training that includes bodyweight exercises and weights training.
