Queer Gym at Partisan at Partisan, Manchester 9 August 2021 Tickets from £9 — Book now

Partisan are well settled into their new home in the Islington Mill site and have once more been bringing culture, community and inclusivity to the heart of their events programme. Alongside the gigs and gatherings, August sees the start of a new venture for the co-op’s space. Queer Gym Manchester is running two trial sessions with a view to bring body positive and inclusive fitness to Partisan on a fortnightly basis.

Set up to provide the LGBTQIA+ community a platform through fitness and a space where diversity is celebrated

Led by founding member Aria Scere-Jacobs, Queer Gym will be leading four classes aimed at all body types and abilities with options to chose the right level for yourself within the class. Starting with Stretch and Zen, this first session draws from Yin Yoga practise, opening the body up and allowing you to reconnect with your physical wellbeing through slow flows and held postures. Following this is a higher intensity circuit class, using your own body weight rather than weights, this class is a full workout that should make you feel challenged while having fun.

One of the more sociable options is Buddy Up. These sessions are for those who don’t enjoy working out alone. You’re encouraged to bring a friend along and have fun with this partner based practice. Finally, you can also have a go at getting fit while getting lit with Dance fitness. These classes will have you moving to some awesome tunes and learning simple routines that even the most awkward dancer can get into.

Aria is a Dance graduate from the NSCD and later went on to train in Sports Therapy, Personal Training and Group Fitness so you can be sure you’re in safe hands. Queer Gym was set up to provide the LGBTQIA+ community a platform through fitness and a space where diversity is celebrated.

For all classes you should bring clothes you feel comfortable moving in, as well as water. For some it’s also advised to bring a towel or yoga mat so be sure to check the details when you book. These sessions are ticketed as class sizes are limited, and tickets can be bought through the Partisan website.
