International Women's Day - Women Who Lift


Each year International Women’s Day sees thousands of events – global gatherings, conferences, awards, exhibitions, festivals, fun runs, corporate events, concert performances, speaking events, online digital gatherings and more. Events are held by women’s networks, corporations, charities, educational institutions, government bodies, political parties, the media and further communities.

This year’s campaign theme #BeBoldForChange will aim to highlight the need for a more gender inclusive world. The official day provides an opportunity for people to contribute towards a drive for change for women worldwide.

Have you ever you ever wanted to learn how to lift? Develop your lifting technique? Or simply want to shake up your fitness routine?  Sport Aberdeen will support International Women’s Day (IWD) with a day of free weights and lifting classes open exclusively to women.

Come on girls, let’s reclaim the weights room!
