To celebrate This Girl Can Launch Week, Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre ran a free group fitness class every day from the 18th – 24th of March. The classes were also open to non-members and gave women in Albury Wodonga the opportunity to participate in classes that they may have never tried before.
It was great to see so many members, non-members and staff get involved in the initiative, as well as sharing a laugh as we celebrated what our bodies can do!
One of the main barriers to women not participating in physical activity or getting involved in sport is a fear of being judged, or not feeling fit enough to start. VicHealth’s This Girl Can, is all about celebrating and supporting women to embrace physical activity and to find an activity that they enjoy.
At Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre, this is something we truly believe and want to promote, as we want to be known as a centre that is inclusive and supportive of everyone who wants to share in the benefits of being physically active.
We will continue to support This Girl Can initiative, with our next event being a ‘This Girl Can Luncheon’ on the 30th of May – so keep your eyes open for more details coming soon!
