International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality.
At Fitness First, we’re working hard to address the gender imbalance in some areas of the gym and this year, like all the others, we want to celebrate women and their fitness achievements and inspire more women to get active and lead an active lifestyle.
So we’ve had a chat with some of our members, to discuss how they break the bias in their training and every time they walk through our doors.
Plus for the next 2 weeks, we’ve got a Squat challenge for you, powered by Optimum Nutrition. How many squats can you do in 2 minutes? Enter your score to the leader board and be in with the chance to win some fantastic prizes. Scroll down to learn more!
And finally, we’re pleased to offer all our members a complimentary 30-minute Personal Training Session. If you’re eligible for this time-limited offer then your credit is readily available in our app. Hurry, this will expire on Sunday 20th March 2022.
Hear how our members will break the bias
At Fitness First, we put our members at the heart of everything we do and we’d love to introduce you all to Helen & Joy, who’ve been training with us for many years. We chatted body image, training regime, when they felt their strongest and what advice they’d give their youngest selves.
