Keeping Fit

If you feel like you need to get fit, lose weight or you just need an energy boost, Verdon Recreation Centre is the place to go.

Twice a week Activity Sheffield’s Georgia Milborn, turns on the high energy music and gets women jumping, running and stretching for an hour packed with exercise. Georgia explains,

“Its about promoting general well being, but it can also help you get fit and lose weight. We do high energy routines and we mix it up with more gentle stretching and toning exercises.”

The exercises certainly get the heart going and the blood pumping, but its not aimed at the athletic or super fit.

“I make sure that everyone can work at their own level, beginners are very welcome and can take it at their own pace.”

The sessions were attended by a real mix of women from different backgrounds and abilities, and they were keen to tell the Messenger how good it was.

“I started back in September after a bit of a break, everyone’s friendly and we have a good laugh. It’s tough at times, but its really worth the effort, you feel like you’ve achieved something – its good that its so local too.” Emma.

“I’ve been coming for 3 weeks and I already feel better. And during the winter its really good to keep active.” Evelyn
