This Girl Can Classes

What are This Girl Can Classes?

A group of women dance in an exercise class

Picture this...

A community of women getting active together in a safe space, giving judgement the finger and enjoying exercise in all its sweaty, jiggly glory.

Group exercise classes that are actually designed with beginners in mind. Classes where getting it wrong is totally alright. A collective where everyone is welcome and where we help women to relieve stress, build confidence, connect with others and feel like they belong.

It’s not about reshaping bodies to fit with some unrealistic ideal. It’s about reshaping how women experience group exercise and empowering them to show up unapologetically as themselves, relatable bodies, sweat patches and all.

Now, picture This Girl Can Classes. Together, we’re bringing this vision to glorious, sweaty, active life.

We’re breaking down barriers and advocating for exercise to be enjoyed not endured. Smashing obstacles that get in the way of women getting into group exercise.

Offering women a (very) warm welcome to the world of group exercise and being pivotal in a long and happy life of moving however they damn well like.

What will the class be like?

Expect a warm welcome from your instructor when you arrive and the opportunity to discuss any worries you may have before you start the class to settle any nerves.

The 45-minute class starts with a gentle warm up. You’ll then be guided through two short blocks of exercise, with an interval in between. Each main block of activity will be different each week, giving you a taster of different exercise class styles.

Towards the end of the class, you’ll be guided through a cool down, and enjoy a minute of mindfulness giving you a chance to unwind and take five minutes just for you. 

Before you leave, there will be the opportunity to chat about the class with others and chat to the instructor about how you found it.

Things to remember

  • Classes are for those looking to get into exercise for the first time, or after a break
  • Everyone will be a bit nervous, but everyone is in it together!
  • If you go the wrong way, miss a beat; it doesn’t matter, getting it wrong is half the fun!
  • You can go at your own pace and have a break at any point.
  • Classes will support to build confidence and fitness levels, whilst having fun!

How much does it cost?

Most classes cost between £4-8 per session, depending on where they’re taking place.

These are classes that have been specifically designed with them in mind, where women who have never even contemplated a fitness class before can thrive.
