If you are a female, the gym can be a daunting or uncomfortable place.
Whether for cultural, confidence, or other reasons, it can be the last place you want to go to exercise.
We want you to feel comfortable in a space that is less intimidating, more supportive, and that meets cultural needs.
This week marks the first week of Women’s Only hours at the UC Recreation Centre.
Throughout this semester, Women’s Only hours will be available in specified areas of the Recreation Centre, to trial different times, equipment and the success of these hours to work out the best fit for the future.
Female fitness consultants and instructors will be available during these designated times to provide assistance, exercise ideas and any other questions that you may have. You can also book in for a one-on-one Train Me session with a female fitness consultant.
In addition, the Recreation Centre will offer free Teach Me classes, a small group session with a female fitness consultant designed to grow your knowledge around different methods of training, which can be booked at reception. Female only small group training classes will also be offered throughout term four.
We want you to live your healthiest life – and feel comfortable doing so.
