This Girl Can: Female-Only Gym

Friday, 1st February 2019

This year Pendle Leisure Trust is getting behind Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign to provide a range of female-only activities to encourage women to get active.

This Girl Can is part of a national campaign which encourages women of all shapes, sizes and abilities to do more exercise. And Pendle Leisure Trust is getting involved by offering lots of female-only fitness sessions throughout 2019 at its leisure centres – Pendle Leisure Centre in Colne, West Craven Sports Centre in Barnoldswick and Seedhill AFC and Pendle Wavelengths in Nelson.

The Trust has been championing the campaign since December 2018 when it offered free Aquarhythmics and swimming sessions, and in January with women’s Bootcamp classes.

This February the Trust is offering free beginner, female-only gym sessions at Pendle Wavelengths – perfect if you want to start training at the gym and improve your fitness.

(Check out our timetable below for the dates and times of our This Girl Can gym sessions.)

This Girl Can is funded by the National Lottery and offers the message #FitGotReal, which celebrates the creative and unconventional ways that women fit exercise into their busy lives.

Fit Got Real builds on the campaign’s achievements so far and aims to reach out to women of all backgrounds and ethnicities who feel left behind by traditional exercise and prove that judgement, time, money and energy are barriers that can be overcome.
