This Girl Can Classes

Where getting it wrong is totally alright

Looking to start exercising but not really sure where to begin?
Nervous about trying something new?

This Girl Can Classes are taking place at Mytime Active centres, where getting it wrong is totally alright. If you've got two left feet or never done a push up in your life, then these classes are for you.

This Girl Can Classes will give you the confidence to try new moves, understand different fitness class options, and even make new friends.

This project is funded by Sport England and the National Lottery.

This Girl Can Classes

What classes involve

This Girl Can Classes start with a warm welcome from our friendly, qualified instructor. They will explain what the class will entail that week before starting a gentle warm up to prepare your body for exercise.

You will then be guided through two 10-minute blocks of exercise with an interval in the middle. The main blocks of activity will be different each week, giving you a taster of different styles allowing you to try new things in a supportive environment.

The instructor will then guide you through a cool down, before a short period of mindfulness to reflect on the class before your instructor answers any questions you have.
