CANCER Research UK has launched Racercise – women only Race for Life fitness classes – and is calling for qualified fitness professionals to become instructors and deliver the sessions.
Building on the success of Cancer Research’s Race for Life – which now has 17 times more participants than the Virgin Money London Marathon – Racercise classes will be available year round.
Racercise will provide accessible fitness routines, designed around the use of a resistance band, to women of all ages and fitness levels, alongside valuable tools and information about living a healthy and active life.
Instructors will have the opportunity to appeal to the millions of women in the UK who have taken part in, and remain loyal to, Race for Life, and to promote their classes to current Race for Life participants.
Brand, marketing and communications director for Cancer Research UK Anthony Newman said: “Race for Life is our biggest annual fundraiser, raising over £50m per year. We are confident that Racercise will build on this success by encouraging woman to continue exercise and remain fit throughout the year.
“Racercise provides a fantastic opportunity for fitness instructors and trainers to capitalise on the success and enthusiasm for Race for Life, making it available to women all year instead of just the summer months. Race for Life is incredibly successful and we anticipate Racercise to follow this trend.”
