Everybody Health and Leisure is excited to announce the launch of This Girl Can classes, partnering with EMD UK, the national governing body for group exercise. These sessions are a new exercise experience that will enable Everybody to provide a safe and sensitive space for those who want to restart their fitness journey or join a new, friendly and accessible community, no matter their age or ability level.

The classes aim to create a fun, welcoming, non-competitive environment which provides reassurance and support when welcoming participants, at any fitness level. This Girl Can classes include the extract:

“This Girl Can Classes provide a welcoming beginner’s programme where getting it wrong is totally alright. If you’ve got two left feet or have never done a push up in your life, then these classes are for you.” (source includes, https://thisgirlcanclasses.co.uk/about-the-classes/ )

The experience will give you the confidence to try new moves, understand different fitness class options, and even make new friends.

Shelly Meyern, Head of Operations and Projects, at EMD UK shares:

“EMD UK are delighted to be working with Everybody Health and Leisure on the launch of This Girl Can Classes in Cheshire. We created these classes with This Girl Can to bring the joy of exercise to women who previously might have felt that fitness and sport was something they had to do, or who have been too intimidated or worried about their fitness to get involved in the past. We like to tell women at This Girl Can Classes that ‘getting it wrong is totally alright.’ Local partners, like Everybody are so important to This Girl Can Classes as they can reach their local communities and help women up and down the country be more active.”

Victoria Barker, Fitness Manager at Everybody Health & Leisure commented:

“Delivering the This Girl Can training with EMD UK and Active UK is an important milestone for Everybody Health and Leisure in our continued effort to provide our invaluable health and fitness services to those who need it most but are confronted by barriers to access. We have now got a full team of trained instructors who look forward to increasing the reach of our services alongside our partners.

As an organisation we are acutely aware of the numerous issues confronting Cheshire East residents and this launch will further enable us to support those struggling to become active, further eliminating barriers to fearless movement.”
