FuelEXTRA is more than just a sports marketing project – it’s a social impact incubator of Impact Hub London’s New Roots Programme, we dedicate to bridging the gap between under-represented fitness, sports, and wellness instructors and small-and-medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the UK. At FuelEXTRA, we aim to create sustainable income routes for fitness, sports, and wellness instructors while also providing SMEs with executable employee retention programs. We do this by facilitating access to SMEs for these instructors, allowing them to provide their expertise on employees’ fitness and wellness to businesses, impacting people with their growth story and building their personal careers.
