Summer sessions at Brimhams gyms to keep teens toned

Specialised exercise sessions for teens are being offered at Brimhams gyms across the Harrogate district this summer.

Teen Tone Zone, aimed specifically at 12-15 year olds, features exercises that follow guidelines from the American College of Sport Medicine. The courses are designed to help teens feel more confident, boost their energy levels and, if they are sporty, improve their performance. The sessions consist of a combination of gym based exercises to help improve aerobic fitness and functional strength with programmes tailored to each individual.

This is the 16th year that Brimhams gyms have run the Teen Tone Zone sessions. This year, the summer sessions run from 27 July until 5 September at Brimhams’ gyms at the Hydro in Harrogate, Ripon Leisure Centre, and Nidderdale Leisure Centre in Pateley Bridge.

Each site contains state of the art Technogym fitness equipment and experienced fitness professionals are on hand to help improve fitness levels and ensure those people taking part are given the best possible opportunity to reach their fitness targets.

The Teen Tone Zone sessions are fully supervised. Each teen will get an induction from an instructor who will then design a specific exercise programme for them. Booking is required. Each session costs £4, but six sessions can be booked for only £20.
