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 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. 

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

What will the class be like?

Expect a warm welcome from your instructor when you arrive, and the opportunity to discuss any worries you may have before you start the class to settle any nerves.

The 45-minute class starts with a gentle warm up. You’ll then be guided through two short blocks of exercise, with an interval in between. Each main block of activity will be different each week, giving you a taster of different exercise class styles. Click on the tiles below to read more about the This Girl Can Classes styles.

Towards the end of the class, you’ll be guided through a cool down, and enjoy a minute of mindfulness giving you a chance to unwind and take five minutes just for you. 

Before you leave, there will be the opportunity to chat about the class with others and chat to the instructor about how you found it.
