Sign up for free beginner fitness classes in Fenland

Adults in Fenland are being invited to sign up for free novice netball and first step fitness sessions.

Fitness Class

The sessions are the latest in a programme of 12-week fitness courses for adults who either class themselves as overweight or currently do less than 30 minutes of exercise a week. Book your place now.

Each of the courses will have a taster session initially to allow people to try it out and see if they want to continue.

Attendees will be given an information booklet full of simple weekly goals, like trying to be well hydrated, considering portion size and swapping for healthier snacks, to help them strive towards better health between sessions.

The courses, which are being run by Fenland District Council's Active Fenland team, are open to anyone who is over 18 and either considers themselves to be overweight, has a BMI over 25 or is undertaking less than 30 minutes of exercise a week.
