Let's get men active in Easington

A collaboration of partners from the Active Easington Community Sports Network have come together to offer a range of sessions for males over the age of 16.

The new Active Men programme will be launched on Monday, 23 April 2012, starting with a male-only running club which will meet at 6pm in Healthworks, Easington Colliery.  Men of all fitness levels are welcome. Other activities include:

Body Blast Class - Tuesdays at 7.15pm - 8.15pm at Jupiter Gym in Easington, £2.50 per session.

Male only gym session - Wednesdays at 7pm to 8pm at Healthworks, £1.50 per session.
Spinning - Wednesdays at 7.15pm to 8pm at the Fitness Factory in Peterlee, £2.50 per session.

Multi-sports - Fridays at 6pm to 7pm at Peterlee College, £1 per session.

Amy McKenna, community project officer with County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust health improvement services at Healthworks, said: "This is a great opportunity for male members of the community to get involved in some fun physical activity sessions.  We will be looking to try out new activities as the programme continues which will include rowing, dodgeball and football."

Healthworks, the healthy living centre, works in partnership with NHS County Durham and Darlington, County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust, Northumbrian Water and Durham County Council.

Healthworks is located in Easington, County Durham and provides a wide range of health information, activities and support to those living in Easington, and the surrounding area.
