IT’S never too soon to start getting fit and healthy – and schoolkids are being offered fun ways to get fit, at an affordable price.
Barnsley Premier Leisure (BPL) have launched a new MAXx programme for five to 15-year-olds at seven venues across South Yorkshire in May.
It includes a special “MAXx Magic” scheme for five to 10-year-olds, offering a range of family sessions and MAXx for 11-15s – to feature social activities, including fitness classes and gym sessions.
Beach-style lifeguarding lessons and body boarding will feature in the scheme – at the Dearneside Leisure Centre, Wombwell Hillies Golf Course and Hoyland Leisure Centre among others.
Leisure Operations Manager, David Redfern, said: “The programme is designed to help young people to feel comfortable in attending regular activities – with a longer-term aim of encouraging them to exercise and keep healthy throughout their lives”.
