Muslim Women of Merton will be working in collaboration with LiveWell Merton and Sunnah Sports to hold the first ever female only health workshops.
Battling the world of weight can be difficult at the best of times. Conflicting dietary advice, intimidating exercise regimes and making the time to successfully incorporate this into our daily lives can truly pose a challenge.
Thankfully Live Well Merton have partnered with Muslim Women of Merton to offer free (yes free!) workshops. Sessions start in early January at the Morden Islamic Community Centre. We’ll meet every Saturday morning 9.30-11.30 and sessions will include dietary advice from a qualified dietician and a subsequent exercise session with a qualified trainer. Best of all, you’ll feel completely comfortable, as we have a female instructor and there will be no music.
There are some criteria which need to be satisfied. This includes having a raised BMI (you can measure your BMI here: http://www.nhs.uk/tools/pages/healthyweightcalculator.aspx ). BMI if you’re an ethnic minority is 27.5 or higher and for everyone else is 30. Lastly you must have some connection to Merton(work, live or have a GP in the area) or live in Sutton. If you meet the brief or are unsure or even just plain interested, please contact Livewell mentioning us and they’ll organise everything else.
Livewell can be contacted at 020 8973 3545 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forwards to seeing you all!
