Hillingdon Council have launched free activity sessions, especially designed for mother and daughter duos in the borough.

Women in Hillingdon can enjoy a mother-daughter bonding ‘exercise’ and start the New Year in style with fun, free, activity sessions designed just for them.

The council is launching ‘This Hillingdon Girl Can’, their own version of Sport England’s national ‘This Girl Can’, which aims to get women moving and feeling good about themselves in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, free from judgement, no matter what exercise background they have.

Cllr Douglas Mills, Cabinet Member for Community, said: “We are encouraging women of all ages to feel good about exercise by providing a range of sessions for mothers and daughters to enjoy together.

“Whether it’s the first time taking an exercise class, or if it’s a welcome addition to an established exercising week, we hope these sessions will help Hillingdon women on their journey to being healthier and happier in 2016.”

Hillingdon is kicking 2016 off by providing 10 free weeks of activity sessions for mothers and their daughters of all ages and abilities.

Starting in late January 2016, the weekly sessions are designed to be fun and motivating with emphasis on encouraging women who don’t necessarily exercise regularly to give it a try and improve their health.

As an added incentive, mothers and daughters who book their places on one of the 26 different activity sessions will be given an exclusively designed ‘This Hillingdon Girl Can’ T-shirt to keep.

The free 10 week sessions include lots of different activities for residents to choose from, such as yoga, spinning, dance, aerobics and kick-boxing as well as some classes designed specifically for younger girls and their mums such as ‘active play’.

The initial free sessions are followed by an optional further 10 weekly sessions for only £1 a session for those who have caught the exercising bug and would like to continue.
