The classes, supported by CSW Sport, take place on Thursdays from 11am-noon and combine a variety of activities like power walking, light running, toning exercises and exercises.

Hannah Plimmer, instructor at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Centre, said campaigns such as Women’s Sport Week are helping to increase awareness of activities available to women.
