Campaign to get women exercising
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.
