"Strength in unity, wellness in community. Come together for our free* chair fitness class; an empowering blend of somatic movement, connection, and shared laughter."

Sit & Be Fit; FREE Chair Fitness and Social

Every Tuesday at Birkenshaw Methodist Church 11am-12.30pm

Are you looking to infuse vitality into your week while fostering meaningful connections within your community? Look no further than Sit & Be Fit — a fun filled (with a pinch of seriousness) chair fitness class and social gathering held every Tuesday at Birkenshaw Methodist Church from 11am to 12:30pm.

At the heart of Sit & Be Fit lies the recognition of the profound importance of movement in maintaining overall health and well-being. Our class offers 45 minutes of gentle somatics, stretching, strengthening, and cardio exercises tailored to accommodate all fitness levels. Through guided movements, you'll experience increased flexibility, improved strength, and enhanced cardiovascular health — all within a supportive and inclusive environment.

Move What You Can: Everyone's Welcome, and Every Movement Matters

But Sit & Be Fit is more than just a fitness class — it's a vibrant community where friendships blossom and connections thrive. Following the invigorating workout session, we gather for 45 minutes of social time, enjoying tea, coffee, and biscuits and shared laughter. It's during this time that lasting bonds are forged, and the sense of belonging grows stronger with each gathering. Other groups have been forged from Sit & Bit Fit - pop along and find out more.

At Sit & Be Fit our commitment is to accessibility and inclusivity. The class operates on a donation basis, with all proceeds reinvested into sustaining the program. Our dedicated team of volunteers ensures that everyone, regardless of financial means, can participate and benefit from this enriching experience. From covering room hire costs to organizing community outings, every donation received directly contributes to the continuity and growth of our group.

As part of our ongoing efforts to support Sit & Be Fit, we're excited to announce our upcoming Easter raffle (more information below) — an opportunity for participants to contribute while potentially winning fantastic prizes. Your involvement not only adds to the vibrancy of our community but also ensures the sustainability of this invaluable program.

Join us at Sit & Be Fit and discover the transformative power of movement and community. Whether you're seeking to enhance your physical fitness, connect with like-minded individuals, or simply enjoy a refreshing break from your routine, you'll find a warm welcome and a supportive atmosphere awaiting you at Birkenshaw Methodist Church.
