The Fitness Fightback 2021

The Fitness Fightback is back for its second year – to fight back against gender-based violence and support local women and girls impacted by sexual violence and abuse.

Every year, CRCC supports more than 900 local women and girls impacted by rape and sexual violence. COVID-19 has meant an huge increase in demand on our services and the intensity of support needed by survivors reaching out to us.

We need your help, to make sure that no survivor has to cope alone.

The 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence is a chance for all of us who stand against gender-based violence to take action. To mark the event this year, we are again hosting The Fitness Fightback – a series of 16 online fitness classes to raise vital funds to support our work with female survivors of sexual violence.

We’d love you to get involved!

What is The Fitness Fightback?

The Fitness Fightback starts on the 25 November, the International Day Against Violence Against Women and finishes on the 10 December, International Human Rights Day.

Every day, for 16 days, we will host at least one live fitness class, which you can join on Facebook Live or access the video via our private Facebook group throughout the day.

In summary, that’s (at least) 16 online fitness classes, for 16 consecutive days, run by lots of fabulous women, for only £16!

All you have to do is sign up here and purchase your 16 day pass (one for each screen used), in your confirmation email will be a link to our Facebook Group, request to join the Group and we’ll welcome you into the team. All classes, information and updates are via the Facebook Group.

Oh and why not set up a JustGiving page and make the most of your Fitness Fightback with a bit of sponsorship?

As this is an exercise-based event, we want to make sure that everyone keeps safe and well whilst taking part in the classes. The classes are designed for all abilities but if you have a health condition that might be aggravated by exercise or you are new to this sort of exercise you might want to highlight this to the instructors before the class, so they can describe a lower impact version of the exercises as the class goes along. You don’t have to, you know your own bodies and capabilities. This goes without saying but please don’t push yourselves further than you feel comfortable.

By taking part in this event you all understand that you are doing so at your risk and that Cambridge Rape Crisis Centre nor the personal trainers is/are not responsible for any risk, injury, loss or damage that may result and will not be liable for any claim which may arise from this event.
