Starting in July are 8 weeks of free women only exercise classes, taking place outdoors in the stunning setting of Holland Park as part of the 'This Girl Can Project'.

The first class is Zumba which will start on Tuesday July 12th from 12pm-1pm and run for 8 weeks. This aerobic dance class is perfect for all ages and abilities. These sessions are great fun and will help contribute to weight loss, improved flexibility, and general fitness.

The second weekly class is Outdoor Gym which will be using the equipment in the park. An instructor will be on hand to demonstrate how machines work and offering training advice. No previous experience necessary.

Both these classes are free and will run for 8 weeks and open for a female who would like to take part.

This Girl Can celebrates active women who are doing their thing no matter how they do it, how they look or even how sweaty they get.

Launched in 2015, the campaign has successfully persuaded nearly 4 million women to take action – but our work isn’t done yet.

Women come in all shapes and sizes with all abilities and from all backgrounds. Some of us are expert sportswomen, some of us are a bit rubbish. It doesn’t matter. We’re just happy that you’re getting active. And if you’re still not sure that you can, we’re here to help you to figure out the way of getting active that’s right for you.

Our research shows that many women are put off taking part in physical activity due to a fear of judgement – this might be about the way the look when they exercise, that they’re not good enough to join in or they should be spending more time on their families, studies or other priorities.

This Girl Can seeks to tell the real stories of women who get active or play sport in the way that’s right for them using images that show what activity really looks like in all its sweaty, jiggly glory. We never judge and we don’t care what other people think.
