Our Support Worker Elle explains how she’s starting a Gym group for our female clients.
Seeing an opportunity to start a female gym group, I jumped at the chance.
Being aware of a selection of young ladies at Space Inclusive who were eager to keep active, eat healthily and loose some weight I felt that a female gym group would be great. I understand that the gym can be a daunting prospect, with lots of machines that you or may not know how to use, weights that look heavier than you could ever lift and often surrounded by large groups of men. Because of this, many women don’t have the confidence to join.
However, with a group of female friends who can work together, to achieve the same aims, it can be fun and rewarding. After meeting with the group we decided we all wanted to become fitter and healthier, gaining more confidence through weight loss. We have a fitness plan to work to, with various levels with opportunity to progress to higher levels of fitness and gain more self confidence.
