Fitness festival to get Basildon women active

Mick Ferris

The Women Like Us festival is returning to Basildon for a second time.

The festival, for women in Basildon, is taking place at The Basildon Lower Academy on March 8 between 10am-1pm. Coinciding with International Women’s Day, Active Essex is hoping to get women across the county active in order to narrow the gender gap in sport and physical activity.

This Girl Can Essex ambassadors are helping to deliver a range of activities throughout the morning; from Stretch & Tone and Kettlebells to Body Boxing and Clubbercise! Whether you are new to physical activity or looking for something new, the festival features both low and high intensity sessions to be inclusive for all.

The festival aims to inspire everyone to get moving in a way that suits them.

Juliette Raison, Active Essex relationship manager for South West Essex, said: “Our festivals celebrate women trying out new activities. There is always such a great vibe and real community spirit on the day. Last year we had over 800 women take part in the festivals across Essex and we are delighted to be able to bring the festival back to Basildon.”
