Body project has launched a virtual NHS team, to help the NHS create an integrated body system.
The team is a collaboration between the NHS, Loon, the medical research agency, the NHS Trusts and the NHS Foundation Trust, which will work on the NHS’s first ‘virtual NHS’ project.
The body project has been set up by the NHS trust, with the help of its NHS body-building team, and is intended to help develop the NHS into a ‘Virtual NHS’ that will provide more realistic training opportunities for those seeking to become NHS Bodybuilders.
The project will provide a fully fledged NHS bodybuilding programme for students, who are not currently eligible to train under the NHS Bodybuilding Programme, and who have the time and resources to invest in the NHS programme.
“We know that we can only achieve this by having a real NHS bodybuilder team that we all trust and care about.
That is why we are launching this project, to give a voice to those who can’t be heard on the internet or at work,” said Dr Simon Wood, head of NHS Body-Building, NHS Trust and NHS Foundation.”
By building a team of students, it will give our young people a voice and a chance to prove themselves to be able to compete and succeed in the UK’s bodybuilding world.”
This project will also help to bridge the gap between our students and the professional bodybuilding community by helping to connect the two,” he added.”
For the first time, the virtual NHS will allow students to train alongside professional bodybuilders, who will have the support of the NHS and NHS Trust, and have the ability to take part in the programme with our young bodybuilders,” he said.”
At the moment, there is no way to train in bodybuilding under the UK bodybuilding program without the support and encouragement of a bodybuilding coach.
Our virtual team will allow our young students to develop a strong personal and professional body, which we will be able use as our training platform for the next few years.
“Dr Wood said that the team would be working alongside the National Bodybuilding Foundation, and that the NHS bodybuilders would also be working with the National Health Service (NHS) and the National Foundation for Sport (NFS).”
We want the virtual team to be a team that can inspire and motivate other young people and we are excited to work with the NFS and NHS to make this happen,” he explained.
The virtual team is expected to be launched by the end of April.
