Newsham Park Fitness Club

Message from Helen Johnson

Newsham Park Fitness Club has been up and running since January 2012. There has been some really good attendance, even in the freezing weather and that funny freezing rain! We use body weight strength training techniques to re-discover your abs, firm up your legs and banish bingo wings. We also have a laugh, play some games and make new friends.

There is still space and a few weeks left on the free NHS funded club and I am trying to get as many people along to try the Fitness Club before the free places run out.

Currently there are ten free NHS funded sessions left to run at Newsham Park Fitness Club. Five more on Saturdays 10am to 11am and five more on Wednesdays 7pm to 8pm.

We have about thirty people already registered who can come down any time to make the most of this NHS funded scheme before it ends. Anybody who hasn't registered yet, come along anyway and you can register on the day. If anyone can make it Saturday 3rd March for 10am, I am running fitness tests for a few people that missed them last week. I will run fitness tests again in five weeks time so that people can really see the good progress they have made.

We meet on the grass opposite the Adult Centre on Newsham Drive. Call or email me for further information 0151 222 2560

This is what Newsham Park Fitness Clubbers have to say about NPFC:

"Really enjoyable sessions", "a great way to get fit with a great bunch of people", "an instructor that makes even amateurs like me feel comfortable", "I've only been 3 times and already I can see where my abs should be".

Starting in April, I will be running Helen's Heart Healthy Program. A six week weight loss and strength training course involving structured healthy eating advice, mindfulness anti-stress techniques, online diary and strength training sessions at Newsham Park.

I hope to see you soon for a great big dose of fresh air and fitness!
