Junior Fitness

Our Junior Fitness gym sessions allow children aged 11–15yrs to come and train in our 35 station fitness suite. Our qualified staff will provide each child with an induction to use the equipment relevant for that age group. The sessions can improve cardio vascular fitness, muscular endurance and bone mineral density.

These sessions run after school on Monday to Fridays from 3.15-4.15pm or 4.15-5.15pm.


Members: Free (child must be part of a full family Leisure Centre membership)
Non-members: £3.00 or £10.00 for 5 sessions!

Until they reach 16yrs old Juniors must either be accompanied by a Parent or Guardian age of 18yrs who has completed a gym induction at Downton Leisure Centre or attend the Junior Fitness supervised sessions. There are some restrictions on what equipment juniors can use in the gym for health and safety reasons, but this will be explained during the gym induction.


Please note that Junior Fitness sessions may be cancelled at short notice due to circumstances beyond our control. Juniors must book in to either the 3.15pm or 4.15pm Junior Fitness session in order to secure a place; as there is a limit of 10 Juniors per session.

Before you get started

Those aged 11-15 years old must attend a gym induction prior to using the gym, and they must complete a Health Questionnaire which also needs to be signed by their parent or guardian before/on attending their gym induction.
