Parents wanting to help their children lose weight and get more active need look no further than a free exercise and nutrition course starting in Spalding next month.

Fit Kids is a 12-week programme that helps youngsters get fitter and healthier, while boosting their confidence and giving them the opportunity to make new friends.

The course has already helped hundreds of families across Lincolnshire, with the next one starting at The Fitness Company in Spring Gardens on Monday, September 9.

The after-school initiative is aimed at kids aged eight to 12 and will take place every Monday from 4pm to 5pm.

Children get to take part in fun activities, such as team games, exercise classes and yoga, and are encouraged to take part in an optional second weekly session of dance, a gym workout or fitness class of their choice.

The course also includes advice on diet and nutrition, with parents being invited to join in the sessions which will include cooking and food tasting.

Space on the free programme, funded by NHS Lincolnshire and South Holland District Council, is limited to 12 children.

Tracey Vowels, who owns The Fitness Company, said: “Working with children is great fun and it’s not just about their weight. By the time they complete the 12 week course they have got more confidence and their fitness has improved. The results are really successful.”
