Sport and fitness for women and girls

‘Return to fitness’ programme

If you’d like to get more active and try a variety of exercise classes with like-minded women, sign up for our ‘return to fitness’ programme.

We’ll be organising a number of 10-week programmes, involving one exercise session per week, at various locations in Cambridge. No previous fitness experience is required or expected.

We’ll publish the start date and location of each series of sessions here when they are confirmed. You can also follow @getmovingcam on Facebook to see more of what we offer.
