A successful men’s health day at an Inverness gym attracted such strong feedback that organisers are hoping it will be the first of many in future.

DM Elite played host to a special Men’s Day at its headquarters in Inverness at the weekend.

And 30 men - gym and non-members alike - popped along to the gym in Longman Drive for the occasion.

The event, which ran for several hours, included special guest talks from local doctor Peter Grime and his consultant urologist about men’s health, as well as from DM Elite’s Dan Moore, who discussed healthy mindsets and about how the gym works to help get people into the right frame of mind.

Topics covered during the day, its talks and Q&A session included prostate issues, optimal performance, mental health and mindset, and general men’s health topics - and much more.

And it proved such a success that DM Elite is hoping to run future Men’s Day events, possibly twice a year to help make sure people who can’t attend one, can still access the health information they need.

“Men’s Day is all about bringing men together in an environment where we can educate, discuss and support each other,” said a spokesperson for DM Elite.

After the various presentations, those present then took part in a team structured workout, with everyone supporting each other.

Personal trainer Robbie Siegel said the day had proven to be a great success, with a lot of very positive feedback from the people who had taken part.

He explained that DM Elite had wanted to start up the Men’s Day to raise awareness as it felt that there wasn’t really much like it being held in the Highlands, and the gym was eager to ensure people got access to education on men’s health and were able to get the assistance they need to live healthier lives.

Off the back of its success, he added that the gym is now looking to hold two such events a year, with another possibly being lined up for sometime in September or October so that more people get the chance to access advice and support.
