This Girl Can classes in Pewsey and Marlborough

22nd June 2022, 4:08pm | By andrewjack |

A new kind of group exercise class was launched in April at Wiltshire Council leisure centres.

It is available at both Pewsey (10.35am – 11.20am) and Marlborough (9.45am – 10.30am)

The hugely successful This Girl Can campaign, created by Sport England, has partnered with EMD UK to create This Girl Can Classes with the aim of supporting more women to get active.

The sessions have been specifically designed to provide a welcoming introductory programme where ‘getting it wrong is totally alright’.

During the classes women are introduced to a variety of different group exercise styles, each with different moves and skills to try. These include dance fitness, box fitness, yoga-inspired stretch, and variable intensity interval training.

Each forty-five-minute class starts with a gentle warm up, followed by two different blocks of exercise, with a break in between. The activities will be different each week, giving women a taster of several exercise class styles. The class ends with a cool down and guided mindfulness.

All classes are £3.10 per class

Research from the This Girl Can campaign revealed that fear of judgement, fear of not being fit enough or feeling body conscious can stop women from getting active. This Girl Can Classes have been designed to help women overcome these fears by building confidence and fitness levels, while encouraging friendship and having fun.  The instructors are specially trained to create a warm and supportive atmosphere.

27 instructors from across the county have passed their training and will be delivering these exciting classes.

Booking is available at each centre up to seven days in advance. To book in for a class or other leisure activity, people should go to: https://leisure.wiltshire.gov.uk/LhWeb/en/Public/home
