Inspiring girls to get active in Worthing After a successful summer of women’s sport, Adur & Worthing Councils Sportivate Girls

Fitness courses are set to continue the legacy. Research undertaken by the WSFF has shown that the London 2012 Olympics inspired 41% of young women to be more active! Official figures show that just 12% of 14 year old girls are reaching the recommended levels of physical activity – half the number of boys at the same age. (Source: Women’s Sport and Fitness

Foundation, 2012 WSFF). The Sportivate Girls Fitness programme will provide opportunities for girls aged 14-18 to try something new whilst improving their fitness and having fun! Courses will be 8 weeks long and incentives for regular attendance will be offered. Worthing cabinet member for health and wellbeing, Tom Wye, said: "The Sportivate Girls Fitness Programme will give local young girls opportunities to try a variety of activities to help improve their health and fitness.

The course is designed to help inspire more young women take part in exercise whilst breaking down any barriers to participation.” Sportivate Girls Fitness runs every Wednesday from 24th October – 12th December at Worthing Leisure Centre from 4.30pm to 5.30pm.

The course costs £12 for 8 sessions. If you sign up with a friend, you’ll each only pay £8 for the whole course! For more information or to book a space please contact Lucy Adams, Active Communities Officer, Adur & Worthing Councils at or on 01273 263174.
