SANDWELL Leisure Trust’s six-week Girl Power beginner’s course started this month at its flagship Wednesbury Leisure Centre and is all about ladies learning to lift safely and effectively – as well as proving the weights room is not just a male-only domain.
Wednesbury Leisure Centre’s Site Fitness Co-ordinator Natalie Corns said: “We’re delighted to be delivering this bespoke and targeted programme for SLT, because many women lack confidence to work out in free weights areas. “Girl Power will cover all the major weight bearing techniques & enable participants to stabilise their core and maximise muscles through the correct positioning, etc.”
SLT’s business development manager Neil Duggan said: “This bespoke new Girl Power programme will spice up any fitness regime and is our very latest platform to try and encourage new participants into being more active and fitness aware, but also support women members (old and new) who are looking for technical advice in terms of lifting.
“This much anticipated pilot follows our hugely successful Couch to 5K initiative delivered across Sandwell in 2018, which resulted in record numbers of local people trying running for the first time and had a retention rate twice above the national average.”
