Free gym classes for women in Camden
To celebrate International women’s Day, Camden Public Health is offering free gym classes for one day to women in Camden through the Give it a Go! programme.
Give it a Go! is a year round programme that aims to encourage inactive and moderately inactive Camden residents to do more physical activity.
The event will take place on Wednesday 8 March at local leisure centres in Camden. Gym classes will include classes such as Zumba, boot camp, hatha yoga and much more. There will also be free access to the gym and pools at several leisure centres.
Participating leisure centres include;
Better Gyms: Oasis Sports Centre, Swiss Cottage Leisure Centre, Kentish Town Sports Centre and Pancras Square Leisure Centre
On the day, women who are eligible for the Give it a Go! programme will also be able to pick up three free activity passes for the participating leisure centres. Residents will need to be referred by local council organisations within Camden Council services and community or voluntary associations.
To be eligible for three free passes, people must:
Be aged 18 or over
live in Camden or be registered with a Camden GP
be in receipt of state benefit (e.g. job seekers allowance, income support, housing benefit, council tax benefit, and working families’ credit)
be ‘inactive’ or ‘moderately inactive’ according to the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q), which they must complete at the time of referral
not already be a member of a leisure facility (or within the last six months)
not have received free leisure passes from Give it a Go! in the previous six months.
All residents accessing Give it a Go! require proof of ID, proof of state benefit, a stamped referral letter and a completed PAR-Q before attending one of the leisure centres.
