A fitness week which gives residents the chance to try out sports for free will take place at the end of January.
Fit for Life week, organised by the Royal Borough, will take place from Saturday, January 23 until Sunday, January 31, with activities open for anyone living in the Windsor and Maidenhead area aged 14 and up.
The week offers a variety of sports tasters for adults and families including walking football, zumba, wheelchair basketball, Nordic walking and karate.
The aim of the week is to encourage residents to take part in sport on a weekly basis and trial different sports for free.
Over the week sports clubs and leisure providers will open their doors to the public and more than 100 sporting sessions are on offer.
Jatinder Rakhra, Fit for Life activator said: “This week will be better than last year with loads more sport and full day of health checks. Some highlights include glow sport, football aerobics, belly dancing and a visually impaired running session.”
“We have another week lined up for May which will include summer sports like outdoor swimming and sailing.”
Free NHS health checks will also be available for people aged 40-74 without a pre-existing condition as part of the initiative.
The week is party of a three year project funded by Sport England and the Fit for Life week is in its second year.
