See a happy new you for 2013

PEOPLE can see in the new year with a transformation thanks to a range of fitness sessions at venues across Hartlepool.

Bookings are being taken for the New Year, New You initiative, which comprises a series of mainly Begin 2 classes, most of them for both men and women.

Organised by Hartlepool Borough Council’s sport and physical activity team, they will start on various dates in January and in most cases run for around six weeks.

They will take place at a range of venues, including Mill House Leisure Centre, the Headland Sports Hall and Brierton Community Sports Centre. Most classes cost £15 per person.

The classes include Begin 2 Kettlercise, Begin 2 Circuits, Begin 2 Aquajog, Begin 2 Legs, Bums and Tums, Begin 2 Badminton, Begin 2 Bootcamp, Women’s Begin 2 Dance and Begin 2 Dance (Partners).

There will also be three separate opportunities for people to take part in the increasingly popular activity of Nordic walking.

A dedicated New Year, New You page has been added to the council’s website at
