A new This Girl Can gym has opened just for women at Belle Vue Community Leisure Centre, responding to local demand for women to have their own space to exercise.  The gym was launched at the end of October and celebrated by loads of women and girls from the local community taking part in a Zumbathon!  Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to trying out the gym.
