Youth can get gym-ready with new Teen Fit block

Doon Valley Leisure Centre in Dalmellington has introduced a new programme as part of its youth fitness offering.


The first block of this new three-week Teen Fit programme for youths aged 14 and 15 kicks off on Thursday, November 29, from 3pm to 4pm.


A qualified gym instructor will be on hand to guide teens through how to use equipment, giving tips and corrections along the way.


Upon completion of the block, participants will then be able to use the gym without adult supervision.


Cost is £12 per three-week block.


To book, or for further information, call Doon Valley Leisure Centre on 01292 550665.


Please note that the current Thursday evening Teen Fit session will no longer run from November 29.


There is also a regular Teen Fit class each Tuesday from 4.30pm to 5.30pm, where youths aged 12 to 15 years can come along and use the gym, with a qualified gym instructor on hand to supervise and advise. Cost is £4 per session.
