Emma will be leading the In League with Women Campaign that looks to involve women in a variety of fitness and wellbeing sessions alongside those currently being delivered by SCDF and our partners.
Emma will be the head of many projects within the borough such as:
Tackle Your Fitness 12-Week Programme – Tackle Your Fitness is a women’s only session within the community, it helps manage and maintain areas such as fitness, weight management, nutrition, mental health, and overall wellbeing.
Tackle Your Fitness Bootcamp – A weekly bootcamp for both male and females, this is an hour-long session that uses a variety of different training styles to help you keep fit and well. Sessions will help build fitness and wellbeing.
Coffee Mornings on Thursdays – All women are welcome!
The coffee morning is in place to welcome women in the local area. For example, if you have just dropped the kids or grandkids off at school and want to pop in for a coffee and a chat, you can!
The session is a great way to socialise and find out about the fantastic projects we provide within the community.
Walk and Talk Sessions – The walk and Talk Sessions allow women to go on a grouped walk within the local area with other like-minded women. If you have something on your mind that you would like to talk about or you’d simply like to de-stress, Walking with others is a great way to help you do that!
Young at Heart Sessions – Young at Heart is a light circuit-based exercise session geared for people who are 50 years and over.
It is a mixed session for both Male and Females and utilises equipment such as resistance bands, chairs, light dumbbells, and exercise fit balls to help older members of the public to maintain their fitness!

” You cannot believe how thrilled i am to announce this initiative. We promised at the podcast launching the back onside programme for males that we will be delivering a similar programme for women within the borough. Alas with the lockdowns and the need to ensure the correct people are in place within the programmes. it has taken us longer than aticipated to finalise, but it’s here and ready to make a difference.
