Free weekly women's exercise class
A free nine-week group exercise class for women will be held in Woy Woy starting next month on Wednesday, March 3.
The class is being organised by Diabetes NSW and aims to show how a more active and healthy lifestyle will benefit the participants.
The program is open to women aged over 18 of all fitness levels and backgrounds and involves a one-hour afternoon group exercise session every week for nine weeks, with an additional 30 minute health education session every fortnight.
"This fun, social and motivating program incorporates many of the factors that contribute to women's health - exercise sessions, tips to eating healthy, techniques to relieve stress and anxiety, and an opportunity to connect with other women," said Diabetes NSW-ACT marketing co-ordinator Ms Loni Pettett?.
"The program is delivered in a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable setting, by qualified exercise physiologists who have experience working with groups of women in all different stages of life.
"This initiative is aimed at all women in the community.
"Unlike many of our other programs, you do not need to be diagnosed with diabetes to join."
She said that participants who registered for the Move with Women program would receive a one-on-one goal-setting consultation with an exercise physiologist, booklet which includes fun activities and health information for women, and a resistance band to use during the program and afterwards.
There would be a final assessment, wrap up and plans for a future catch-up with an exercise physiologist
There would be the opportunity to meet new people, create friendships and connect with other women, she said.
The program would be held at I-fitness at the Wellnest Collective in Blackwall Rd, Woy Woy.
Registration is available through the movewithwomen.com.au/classes web page or by phone on 1800 328 951.
