School Run Fitness Camp is a new initiative launching in Consett, with a mission to improve the health and wellbeing of young families in the area by promoting sustainable, health and fitness lifestyle improvements through physical exercise and nutritional awareness consultation.
The program consists of convenient fitness classes taking place in the morning, straight after the school run for parents and after school clubs for parents and children alike in a fun open door environment to learn about nutrition – it doesn’t have to be boring or tasteless!
With the backing of 17 local schools and a school benefit program which will see financial donations made from School Run Fitness Camp to participating schools in order to support their health and fitness curriculum that way the whole family can benefit in an easy, accessible, friendly environment.
With The World Health Organisation regarding childhood obesity as “one of the most serious global public health challenges for the 21st century. “ and Public Health England finding almost a third of 10-11 year olds and over a fifth of 4-5 year olds are overweight or obese.* There couldn’t be a better time to start your Families’ journey.
Chris Jackson, founder, School Run Fitness Camp is a parent himself and has being developing the program over the past 7 years with children, parents and schools in mind and said “I believe we need to make a difference and that difference needs to be made as part of a team for our own and children’s sakes. If we can lead by example and make small manageable changes to our lifestyles we will be creating an active and sustainable future for our children.”
Classes begin in July 2014 at Croft Travel, Hownsgill, Delves Lane and welcome anyone to come along, regardless of ability, School Run Fitness works in a friendly community environment.
It is a great opportunity to socialize, improve your own fitness and learn how to do the same for your family.
