Local mum Karen Fletcher reviews Woughton’s fab fitness classes for kids.
We were excited to be given the opportunity to review a new funfilled fitness class for children called Born to Move at 1Life at Woughton Leisure Centre – and it certainly lived up to expectations.
The one-hour class we attended is for 8 to 12-yearolds – on Mondays from 5pm and Saturdays from 3pm – and is billed as ‘The ultimate mix of music, games and energy’.
Both of our boys, who are football mad, loved the session and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an activity for their children that is a bit different to the usual football or gymnastics.
We were greeted by Rachael, who took us to the studio which was very modern, clean and thankfully had good air conditioning!
Parents are welcome to stay and watch, grab a coffee in Costa or alternatively use the gym if they are members.
We of course decided to watch as Jake and Max started with ice-breaker activities and gentle warm-up exercises.
They then moved on to music-based routines they had to follow on the big screen. Ten songs were
played, each between 3 to 5 minutes long, as the children copied the movements of the coaches on screen.
The music is current, the routines are easy to follow and the boys enjoyed excercising while making friends along the way.
There are separate sessions for 4-5 year olds and 6-7 year olds throughout the week, so children of all ages can join in with the fun.
It’s certainly better for them than playing computer games all day!
