Men can enjoy fitness classes for free this week
MEN can access group fitness classes at the Portland Leisure and Aquatic Centre (PLACE) for free from tomorrow until Friday to help mark Men’s Health Week.
A partnership between PLACE operator the Portland YMCA, Portland District Health and SeaChange means men can give a class a try for the first time, return from a break, or see if a different class type will suit them.
There are dozens of sessions on offer, from music and routine-focused BodyPump (repetitive weight lifting) to Spin (using an exercise bike) to more toned-down sessions such as water fitness and tai chi classes.
Craig Stewart has been attending since he looked at himself in the mirror when he turned 40, and decided he wasn’t happy with his weight.
