Dear SU Bid Ideas,
i am emailing to request for the idea of a womens only gym room at the sir tom finney sports centre. Total fitness have a gym room at their gym which is for women-only, and it has many machines, mats, equipment, weights and more. I’ve looked into this however their membership is minimum £37 per month, which is way over the budget for us students.
I am aware there is a womens only football club, however i want to request for this womens only gym that will be available during the usual opening times and women can use this facility like using any other facility at the Sir Tom Finney Sports Centre all year round.
I was wondering what if the UCLan gym can adopt this same idea, i feel so many women would benefit from this and feel more comfortable. Fitness should be comfortable so we can do more of it as it is so important to implement for a a healthy lifestyle.
The thing stopping lots of women from using the gym more often is the fact that the gym is mixed.
I would really appreciate if Sir tom finney sports centre could dedicate one of their rooms into a womens only gym.
This is what total fitness said about their womens only gym room: “ The ladies only area offers you a conscious free environment and is a great place to make friends and focus on achieving your health and fitness goals.”
I would really love if UCLan can adopt this Big Idea and allow us females to feel comfortable coming to the gym whenever we want and achieve our fitness goals!
I am aware a few previous members of staff had this same idea when I emailed them about this last summer, but have asked me to post it on Big Ideas the next time it's open! (which is now)
