Girls Gym Intro Course
Our six-week course introduces young females to training safely, effectively and with confidence in the gym environment.
Female sport and fitness participation has an issue: by the age of 17, 64% of girls have dropped out of sport entirely.
Common reasons for this drop-off include girls lacking confidence and self belief whilst performing physical activity, not finding enjoyment in sport, or experiencing reservations about intimidating gym environments.
We combat these limiting factors by building confidence in girls’ ability to use the gym safely and effectively to increase health and performance, including addressing female specific barriers to participation.
