Eight-week fitness course offer for women

TWO new sports courses have been set up to give women the chance to get fit.

Street gym – a form of outdoor exercise – and Nordic walking are on offer in Hartlepool through the Women’s Begin 2 programme run by Hartlepool Borough Council’s sport and recreation team, with support from Sport England and the Primary Care Trust.

The street gym course will take place at Ward Jackson Park for eight weeks from July 7. Weekly sessions will take place from 6pm-7pm.

The Nordic walking course will take place at Summerhill. Weekly sessions from 5.30pm-6.30pm will take place for six weeks from July 5.
