Boxing club launches exercise sessions for women-only

WOMEN of all ages can limber up without being self-conscious thanks to a new initiative in the Watchet Boxing Club gym.
The sessions, which have been organised by West Somerset Council, offer afternoon and evening workouts so women can choose how to fit the exercise into their lifestyles.
Qualified gym instructor Izzy Silvester is running the women-only sessions for anybody from beginners to experts, no matter whether they are teenagers, mums, or grandmothers.
District council leisure, culture and recreation portfolio holder, Councillor Neil Parbrook, said: “We live in a very health conscious age so it is a sensible idea to give ladies who might feel inhibited with men around the opportunity to get fit in a ladies-only atmosphere.
“They will learn how to exercise correctly, and hopefully discover that keeping fit can be fun, too.
“We would like to thank Watchet Boxing Club for supporting the sessions.”
Monday afternoon sessions are from 1.15 pm to 2.15 pm until December l7, except during the schools half-term, at a cost of £2 per session. Creche facilities are available at the local children’s centre.
Thursday evening sessions are from 7 pm to 8 pm until December 20, except during the schools half-term, and also cost £2 per session.
Anybody who is interested can go along to the sessions for an introduction, or they can contact Sam Fahey on 01984 633655 or 635980.
