Marsh Fit is a free community fitness incentive.  It is for all ages and both guys and girls.  A two year old and a sixty two year old regularly come to the group!  Mum’s with kids are welcome but it is not just for Mums.  Research shows that people who regularly exercise in a group are more likely to stick at it.
