Women are being invited to a free weekend of fitness at The Gym to encourage them to get active.
The event has been inspired by the This Girl Can campaign, The Friends Weekend offers women the chance to attend the Bridge Street gym for free on Saturday, October 3 and Sunday, October 4.
The free weekend comes in response to a nationwide survey of The Gym members which revealed many women feel that working out with a friend is the biggest influencer in staying active.
Nick Boxer, general manager at The Gym Luton, said: “Sport England’s This Girl Can campaign highlights the barriers to exercise that women face, with fear of judgement and feeling intimidated by gym settings being some of the biggest obstacles.
“We are keen to support women of all ages to be more active by providing a relaxed and welcoming gym environment.
“Our This Girl Can Friends Weekend provides the perfect opportunity for local women to try a fun group fitness class or simply workout in the gym, with the added benefit of sharing this experience with a friend.
“We will have lots of friendly instructors on hand to help them get started and on their way to a healthier lifestyle.
“We have something for everyone with a wide range of fitness workouts on offer throughout the weekend, including Circuits, Abs & Core and Body Conditioning, and no limit on the number of classes you can try.”
