A GROUP of Muslim women claim that Hounslow Council is not doing enough for their exercise needs.
They say that due to religious constraints they can not exercise when there is a man about, even if he is the instructor.
They want more women-only facilities in leisure facilities and have complained, in some centres, even the changing rooms are communal.
Councillor Pritam Grewal said: "We current run a significant number of women's sessions across our Leisure Centres. These include swim sessions, gym sessions and classes."
"However, none of the centres guarantee that there will be female only staff working."
