Chance to chill out and tone up

PEOPLE have the chance to chill out and tone up in two new fun fitness sessions for beginners.

The two six-week courses are being run by Hartlepool Borough Council’s Sport and Physical Activity Team and take place in the Headland Sports Hall.

They are:

l Begin 2 Boxfit, which is aerobic exercise incorporating basic boxing techniques to help people tone up their muscles and lose weight. It starts on Wednesday, September 12, from 12.15pm to 1pm.

l Begin 2 Pilates, which is a chance for people to make some time for themselves as they try this therapeutic and calming technique. It starts on Tuesday, September 18, from 6.30pm to 7.30pm.

Both courses cost £15 per person and must be booked in advance.

Rachael Pringle, the council’s sport and physical activity officer, said: “These two courses are very different but both are lots of fun and provide a great introduction to two fitness techniques which are becoming ever more popular.”

There’s also a special September offer running on the Begin 2 Gym programme, which includes six sessions any time or day at Mill House Leisure Centre, in Raby Road, an induction session, a techno gym key and an Active Card.

It costs just £25 for anyone signing up this month (a saving of over £20) and inductions start from the week commencing 10th September.
