The Birmingham LGBT Centre offers a range of different exercise classes on site, taught by professional instructors but completely free to attend. This includes our Super Monday Workout session to help banish any Monday blues.*

Each week, Sakina (pictured) takes you through different exercises, tailored to your individual level of fitness.

The class includes a warm up, structured cardio session, strengthening and toning, a cool down and stretch, all guided by her expert instruction, so whether you are completely new to exercise classes or a seasoned pro, you are offered the right workout for you.

Sakina says: “I am thoroughly enjoying leading the Monday Workout at the Birmingham LGBT Centre and it’s great to see everyone enjoying the class, having fun and getting fitter. I pride myself on my fun and friendly approach, so come and join us – the more, the merrier!”

Classes are held in the ‘Vault’ Fitness Studio in the Birmingham LGBT Centre from 6-7pm.

You can come along to a class whenever you like. It’s a good idea to arrive a little before the start time especially the first time as there are a couple of forms to complete.

There are classes on 11 and 18 December, and then the Monday workout takes a break, starting again at 6pm on 8 January.

Follow us on Twitter for updates about classes and occasional unavoidable cancellations.

*Banishment of Monday blues not guaranteed…but we will try
