(Tuesday 2nd January 2018)
In January 2018 Faster Fitness Solutions will be launching a brand-new kids and teens fitness incentive designed to get the young people of HD8 more active (Click here to find out more about the founder, Darren Thomas).
Our Faster Fitness kids and teens programs are based around the most up to date and cutting-edge strength and conditioning protocols that are designed to give growing kids and teens a strong movement foundation before progressing them into safe and effective weight lifting and sports conditioning strategies.
HOW WILL THE COURSE WORK?
Well we will start with small group fitness sessions at the facility in Denby Dale. These will take place after school at 4:15pm and on Saturday mornings at 11:30am and 12:30pm and cost just £5. Over the course of 2018 I will then look to diversify the service and offer a variety of more specialist coaching options to aid sports specific development for young athletes to further enhance their sporting development.
WHO IS IT FOR?
They are not just for young athletes who play sport. They are for any young person who just wants to get more active and develop improved co-ordination, flexibility, balance and body awareness.
The sessions will be fun and engaging and involve a mixture of

In it they highlight a significant amount of research outlining benefits such as:
My aim is to also provide the kids and parents with educational materials to help with things such flexibility and mobility drills, athlete nutrition and good habits for athlete development.
My aim is to provide a cost-effective service of the highest possible quality that will allow the young people of HD8 and beyond to stronger, more successful and healthier lifestyles
FIRST SESSION IS FREE
