The programme is set to begin tomorrow (Saturday) with the first class from 12.30pm and there are still a limited number of spaces available.

Carl Hawker, the owner of Just Body Fitness, told the Algarve Resident: “The programme is aimed at women of all ages and during the lessons participants will be able to learn about weight loss from a qualified nutritionist while also being shown simple exercises that can be completed at home or in the gym.”

Registration for the programme costs 30 Euros per month and gives members unlimited use of the gym facilities five afternoons per week and admission to the weekly class.

“During the classes we will be demonstrating various exercises including a 20 minute cardiovascular workout, 20 minutes of stretching and also relaxing breathing techniques which help the intestines,” said Carl Hawker.

He added:”The class is for women only so there is no need to feel embarrassed about coming along and taking part in this challenge.”

Those joining the class are asked to wear shorts or tracksuits while participants will be required to complete a confidential questionnaire regarding daily exercise routines and eating habits

Participants weight and body fat measurements will be taken to enable the monitoring of the weight loss programme.
