Fitness Instructors Wanted In York To Keep Over 50's Fit

Pilates at Eng-AGE 50+ Activity Day 2013

8:51am 21st November 2013

City of York Council is inviting fitness instructors to get in touch about setting up new classes to add to the successful Eng-AGE 50+ activity programme.

Cllr Sonja Crisp, Cabinet Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism said: “We want to build on the success of the now established Eng-AGE programme of activities for the over 50s by adding new fitness activities and by expanding already popular classes.

“Last year we introduced hula-hooping as a new class and it is still going strong a year on, proving that residents want to try new activities whatever their age. Now we want to support fitness industry professionals by offering them an opportunity to earn regular weekly income by taking classes aimed at older people across the city. Coaches, teachers and trainers who want to be a part of this are invited to get in touch now!”

Instructors who join the Eng-AGE programme will be invited to showcase their activity by offering a taster session at the annual Eng-AGE 50+ Day at Energise on Monday 17 February from 9.30am to 4pm. Planning is already underway so any instructor who wants to find out more should contact Catriona Sudlow, Older Peoples Physical Activity Officer on 01904 553377 or email Catriona.sudlow@york.gov.uk before Friday 13 December.
