Exercises involve a combination of cardio and resistance training aimed at building strength and stamina.Lindsey Humble, Health and Fitness Manager with Active Northumberland, said: “Keeping active, as we all know is great for both physical and mental health, which in these uncertain and challenging times, is more important than ever, especially for young people who are just finding their way in life.

“The junior classes aim to combine fun and fitness in a way that young people love while also improving their agility and self-confidence and encouraging good fitness habits from an early age.”

Classes are free to all junior members, but sessions cost £3.50 to non-members. It is advisable for individuals to book in advance in order to secure their place via the Active Northumberland app.
