Free Les Mills experience morning includes classes for youngsters
On Saturday 11 June Abraham Darby Sports and Leisure Centre is hosting an exciting FREE Les Mills customer experience morning which will feature a range of Born 2 Move fitness sessions for young people aged from 4-16 years.
Internationally recognised, Les Mills is the world’s largest provider of choreographed exercise-to-music fitness classes distributed to health clubs and has recently started to develop youth fitness aiming to inspire young people to fall in love with Physical Activity and create a healthier future.
From 9am – 1pm Abraham Darby Sports and Leisure Centre will be showcasing Born to Move sessions for young people to come along and have a go for FREE.
Born to Move Classes will be taking place at the following times:
Each session will be split into the following ages ranges:
4 – 5 years - A fun, captivating class allowing pre-schoolers to explore how their bodies move while immersed in an imaginative world. The music is written with instructions woven into the lyrics so children can listen, follow and sing-along as they explore the ocean, visit outer space or even become a pirate!
6 - 7 years - A wide variety of movements help children to learn key skills such as balance, coordination and endurance. Disciplines such as martial arts and dance will help to develop motor skills and help to build overall physical ability. Recent chart music is mixed with especially composed tracks with enough repetition to understand and learn the movements.
8 - 12 years - This session gets children fitter and faster and it builds overall strength and agility. There is a big emphasis on how children feel rather than look developing social interactive skills, building confidence and competence.
The key to this class is having fun and cultivating a positive attitude towards movement.
13 – 16 years - The choreography becomes more challenging as young people learn from authentic disciplines such as martial arts, sports conditioning, agility, dance and yoga. This moderate exercise class with bursts of intensity is designed to energise young minds, give teens physical competence and helping to recognise natural abilities.
Councillor Richard Overton, cabinet member for Housing, Leisure and Health, said: “It’s excellent that the Les Mills experience morning includes fun and exciting classes for children of all ages to take part in.
“It’s clear to see that the emphasis of these classes is to have fun while learning core skills, but equally making the classes fun is a great way to encourage young people to keep active as part of a healthy lifestyle.”
Numbers are limited for these exciting sessions therefore advance booking is essential.
