She’s Ready Stansted started in April 2022, offering free support and encouragement for women to become more active in a welcoming and inclusive group.
Based here at TouchPoint at Crafton Green, they now have a regular weekly timetable including:
- Every Monday night: 6.30pm interval/beginners run, 7pm 5km run on various routes around the village
- Monday once per month: 6.30pm yoga
- Every Friday morning: 9.15am Bootcamp and Running – held at Touchpoint, option to bring kids, followed by free tea/coffee/breakfast in the cafe
Since the group formed last year, they have held more than 100 sessions, and over 60 women have taken part in their sessions. Many have never taken part in any physical activity before. One member is also now being trained to be a run leader, and two now volunteer at TouchPoint!
In addition to their regular events, they have also arranged social events and information sessions including kick-rounders in the summer, a games evening and wreath-making workshop at Christmas, and talks about the pelvic floor and the menopause.
This quote from a participant sums the group up perfectly:
“I can’t praise Lucy & Lizi enough for their efforts is starting up She’s Ready Stansted & for keeping it going. It is an all welcoming, all encouraging, all amazing group of ladies with them at the helm. I look forward to bootcamp every week & yoga on a Monday now is just the icing on the cake – thank you ladies! Xxx”
Their Facebook Group has grown to nearly 400 members! You can find out more by joining the group here: She’s Ready Stansted Facebook Group. New members are always welcome.
