Creative fitness – trying something new for a better physical & mental wellbeing

Vibe Fitness, 26 Wakefield Road, Normanton, WF6 2BT

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Have you always hated the gym? Perhaps you’ve never found a kind of exercise or activity to keep you fit and healthy that you’ve actually enjoyed? Maybe you, like many many people, find gyms and fitness classes intimidating, anxiety provoking and uncomfortable? During our creative fitness course, run in partnership with Vibe Fitness, you’ll get the opportunity to try some completely new and unusual fitness styles and classes that will show you what alternative (and most importantly fun!) types of exercise are out there. You’ll try things such as Boogie Bounce, rocking out with drumsticks in Pound, combat style sessions in the form of Badass and Boxercise, and stretching and toning using giant rubber bands in Body Bands! You’ll get to see the positive effect that this will have on your mental wellbeing, as well as your physical wellbeing, and will do so in a comfortable, welcoming, small and friendly setting.

Please note that you can join this at any time within the course and join for as long or as little as you like. Please ensure you bring a bottle of water with you and wear appropriate clothing and footwear for exercise.
