Active women

The Active Women programme is targeting women from across Liverpool and specifically those with child care responsibilities. The aim is to make sport more accessible and help women take up regular exercise to improve physical health, mental wellbeing and long term quality of life.

The three year project hopes to engage 3400 women throughout Speke, Garston, Bellevale, Everton, Kirkdale, Anfield, Clubmoor, Norris Green and Dovecot.

Classes and costs
Classes range from Zumba and aerobics to Bokwa and Tai Chi with costs as little as £1.50 per session. Some sessions are even free!
