What is ME TIME?
ME TIME was set up to encourage Luton women and girls aged 14+ to take part in physical activity, in order to help improve their own health and wellbeing. Funded by Sport England, initially for 3 years but now with a further one year extension, ME TIME is an award winning activity programme enjoying huge success and national recognition.
What Makes ME TIME Different?
ME TIME is full of inspirational and motivational female instructors who have a real understanding of some of the barriers to activity that many women face. Now with 5000+ members and a wonderfully diverse timetable of activities, like-minded women have the chance to enjoy fun exercise in safe, friendly and non- judgemental environments, in the heart of a variety of Luton communities.
Women can opt for women only classes which are run by female instructors or choose mixed classes if they prefer. Classes run at times that accommodate work and family life and women can exercise in whatever clothing they like, so respecting traditional customs as well as fears and anxieties about body image. Classes take place throughout the week across Luton and range from Total Body Conditioning, to Yoga, to Legs, Bums and Bring Your Tots, to Women Only Gym, to Fit to Push (Buggy Fitness) and many more.
Developing New Skills and Qualifications
The programme has encouraged women to develop their skills and gain a variety of qualifications such as Fitness Leadership, Nordic Walking, Level 1 Swim Teaching, Level 1 Badminton etc. As a result, many women have gained employment and have been able to deliver ME TIME classes themselves, so helping to encourage sustainability of individual programmes.
