If you’re a parent of 12 – 15 year old, who wants to improve their fitness skills, a Brimhams’ Junior membership at the Jack Laugher Leisure and Wellness Centre in Ripon and Nidderdale Pool and Leisure Centre is the perfect choice for teenagers.
The gym sessions are designed to help teens feel more confident, boost energy levels and improve sport-related performance.
Before starting, a parent or guardian will need to sign a consent form and an induction will need to be completed with an instructor. During the induction the instructor will create a relevant training programme based on physical ability, capability and gym experience; this will be reviewed like any other membership.
The membership includes swimming whenever the swim programme permits and use of the gym at any time.
