LadyFit

LadyFit is a non profit community organization that provides sport (fitness) clubs for women only. The target group is adolescent girls and women ages 15 to 55+ who are socially isolated. Often they have never played sport before in their lives, and they face cultural and social restrictions in participating fully in Dutch society.

LadyFit has approximately 1,700 members, 800 of which are actively involved in sport activities. More than 80% of the members come from a Moroccan background.

Starting in 2010, LadyFit wants to move into providing training and information sessions that will increase personal development, social contact, and skill building, particularly in economic empowerment and health issues.
