Sport and fitness for women and girls

Online ‘return to fitness’ programme

If you’d like to get more active and try a variety of exercise classes, sign up for our ‘return to fitness’ programme. It’s suitable for adults (age 18 or over) who want to get more active.

We can’t currently run sessions at sports centres, so we’re running it online – you can take part when and where it suits you.

You can start the online course at any time. When you register, you’ll receive access to 8 different video workouts and healthy lifestyle tips that you can work through at your own pace. All the sessions have been recorded by Cambridge-based fitness instructors.
