A ‘free of charge’ physical activity session for young people led by Streetsport Coaches and volunteer students from North East Scotland College (NESCOL) who are currently enrolled on the HNC/HND in Health and Exercise and training to qualify as Personal Trainers and/or Gym Instructors.
Set in unused street locations and environments we set up our floodlights and apply the creative minds of NESCOL students to turn each area into an ‘exercise and fitness’ based playground. Each session creates fun challenges for all abilities and best of all…its totally free of charge.
Sessions involve free bodyweight exercises in a safe outdoor environment. Locations are intelligence led and coordinated around current Streetsport sessions in order to provide additional diversionary opportunities for young people who want to get active and keep fit.
Using chalk your instructors will design bespoke one hour long sessions for you to enjoy. No two sessions will are the same and our instructors will always be on hand to offer advice and support. The chalk markings will eventually disappear leaving a blank canvas for the following week.
Sessions are currently taking place at Hutcheon Court (opposite Catherine Street Community Centre and just off George Street) in Abereen City centre on Monday nights between 19:30 and 20:30 PM.
Make sure you get there early to warm up and dress accordingly.
The sessions will be running on the following dates: 08/02/2016, 15/02/2016, 22/02/2016.
Lot’s of thin layers of clothing are better than one thick one during the winter months and remember it will get hot when exercising in the summer. Please bring a bottle of water with you to each session to stay hydrated.
There’s a chance that your body may come into contact with the ground, benches or other fixed items around the locations due to the nature of the activities and therefore we would recommend bringing some kind of light weight gloves to protect you from the elements and hard surfaces. We also provide soft mats for those that want them for further protection.
