Cam­paign to get women ex­er­cis­ing

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

A week­end of free fit­ness classes and gym ses­sions is be­ing of­fered to women.

The Gym, Ash­ford, to­gether with Sport Eng­land’s This Girl Can cam­paign, is en­cour­ag­ing women to get fit and stay ac­tive for free on Satur­day and Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 3 and 4.

By down­load­ing a pro­mo­tion code, women will re­ceive two passes, worth more than £10 each, so that they can train with a friend.

Paula Millen, gen­eral man­ager of The Gym in New Street, said: “Sport Eng­land’s This Girl Can cam­paign high­lights the bar­ri­ers to ex­er­cise that women face, with fear of judge­ment and feel­ing in­tim­i­dated by gym set­tings be­ing some of the big­gest ob­sta­cles. We’re keen to sup­port women of all ages to be more ac­tive by pro­vid­ing a re­laxed and wel­com­ing gym en­vi­ron­ment.”

As well as be­ing able to use the gym, classes on of­fer in­clude body con­di­tion­ing, cir­cuits, abs and core work­outs, with no limit on the num­ber of classes you can try.

Passes are avail­able at www. th­e­gym­group.com/join-now/ day-pass/ and by us­ing the code THIS GIRL CAN.
