After participating in perhaps my favourite class at my local Sweaty Betty boutique, I thought to myself more people need to know about this. I felt the need to write what is to follow in this post.
British fitness clothing brand Sweaty Betty was founded in 1998, with the aim to inspire women through the empowerment of fitness. Nearly two decades later, their philosophy is still as strong. This has been achieved not only by establishing SB as an award-winning activewear brand, but additionally offering an online and local community to promote health, wellbeing and fitness. Incorporated into this project is a little number called Get Fit 4 Free.
From personal experience, I find that exercise can be daunting after a long break from fitness. Whether it’s where/how to begin and cost are at the top of my list. The Get Fit 4 Free campaign offers the opportunity to attend classes, ranging from Bootcamp to Pilates to yoga, for free at a time and day convenient for you. This ticks all of the boxes for me, I’m sure you’re nodding along too right?
Due to shift work at the hospital, it’s difficult for me to attend many classes as the days or times don’t work. So for me, I can only attend on my days off. However if you have a typical 9-5 working day, a lot of classes are in the evening Monday to Friday. Classes at all locations are taught by experienced instructors, in their field respectively, so you know that you’re in good hands. Through the online portal, classes can be booked up to a week in advance. If you’re already making that line of “I can’t make a class”, then the free online tutorials are for you. Team SB have got all of the bases covered. No hiding away now! You’re even able to experience a new form of exercise free of charge. So if you decide it’s not for you, you’ve not wasted any money. Surely this should be some motivation for you.
Take a peek over at Sweaty Betty for more information about Get Fit 4 Free and to book yourself in for a class. Whilst you’re there have a scroll through their blog. Some great midweek reads to enlighten your knowledge and awareness of fitness, health and wellbeing.
I prefer to acknowledge SB not just as a brand alone, but as a movement. A movement that encourages and empowers women like you (e.g. The working mother, student, 9-5 worker, healthcare professional, retiree) and I to be better than we think, to be better than yesterday. Ultimately to believe that we are stronger than we seem.
Take this opportunity to try something new; change only begins at the end of your comfort zone.
