Derby County Community Trust have launched a free physical activity programme to help females across Derbyshire get fit and active.

Kicking off with a free coffee morning at the iPro Stadium on 21st & 22nd July, ‘Active Ewe’ will give the women of Derbyshire an outlet to socialise and improve their physical fitness through weekly sessions.

The programme will look to empower Derbyshire females aged 18+ who currently do less than 60 minutes physical activity per week. All activities are accessible and will take place on a weekly basis across the city, from the ‘home of the rams’ at the Ipro stadium to leisure centres and other community venues.

It will all kick off on the week commencing 25th July, offering sessions including DanceFit, Body Combat, Circuits, ParkFit, Women’s boxing, Spinning and free swim at selected leisure centres. There will be a mix of women’s only sessions and activities mixed with the already successful men’s Active Supporters programme.

A full timetable can be found below, as the programme grows additional sessions will continue to be added:

DanceFit at Derby Arena – 9.30am-10.30am (Womens Only)

Parkfit at Alvaston Park – 10.30am – 11.30am (Mixed Gender)
