Oxfordshire FA, in partnership with South Oxfordshire District Council (SODC), Oxford United Community Trust and Watlington Town FC, are looking to provide a new form of recreational football for women; Soccercise - Get Fit With Football.
Launching in the New Year, Soccercise sessions will take place at Chalgrove Primary School on Tuesday evenings, starting 19th January. Ages 16+
Soccercise is an instructor led aerobic class, typically lasting 45-60 minutes and can be tailored for all levels of fitness. Designed to be undertaken either indoors or outdoors, Soccercise combines a variety of fitness exercises with a football. The class is delivered to music and based on repetitions of specific exercises (i.e. press-ups, squats, sit-ups). Sessions will be delivered by trained soccercise coaches from Oxford United Community Trust.
It can help introduce you to football, re-familiarise those who haven’t played for a while, form part of a pre-season training programme, become part of a pre-match warm-up or just be used as an alternative way to keep fit. The inclusion of footballs adds co-ordination and core stability to familiar exercises. It builds skill and confidence of working with a football. Footballs are provided and you don’t need specialised kit just trainers and comfortable clothing.
