Gym Fitness for Juniors
Childhood obesity is regarded as one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century, according to The World Health Organization.
In response Torquay gym Lifestyle Health & Fitness Suite has joined in the fight to help combat childhood obesity and launched ‘Junior Gym.’
Junior Gym provides teenagers aged 14 and above with a unique opportunity to use Lifestyle Health & Fitness Suite’s facilities during designated time slots throughout the week. Lifestyle is located within the Riviera International Centre and their previous age restrictions were 16 years of age and above.
“During the last couple of years, we have frequently been asked by our members to bring their children along, said Colin Pemberton Manager of Lifestyle Health & Fitness Suite. “Now, with Junior Gym, we are able to say yes to an even wider range of age groups. The importance of fitness cannot be over emphasised and we want to encourage children onto a fit and healthy path into adulthood.”
Colin continued: “The earlier people get into a routine of exercising, the better as they are more likely to stick to it. However it is important that teenagers are directed to the right types of exercise, as their muscles and bones are still developing. This is why as part of Junior Gym we also want to raise awareness of basic health and fitness knowledge.”
All young members to Lifestyle Health & Fitness will receive an induction with an experienced Personal Trainer Steve Smith who will design a programme to suit their age. Young members will also benefit from a discounted Day Session of £3 or a monthly membership of £17.50.
Junior Gym Opening Hours:
Mondays to Fridays from 3.30pm to 5pm
Weekends from 11am to 5pm
