MORE Fitness for Teens!

23 May 2018
Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council has recently reduced the age limit for using the Council’s fitness suites from 16 to 14 years of age. From the age of 14, teens will now have access to the fitness suite and have the ability to use cardiovascular equipment and some of the classes across Antrim Forum, Ballyearl, Crumlin, Sixmile and Valley Leisure Centres as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian. 
Mayor of Antrim and Newtownabbey, Councillor Paul Hamill commented, “I am delighted that Council has lowered the age limit of our fitness suites across the Borough. Exercise plays a vital role in keeping us fit and healthy and it is important that teenagers lead an active lifestyle early in life, to reduce the chances of obesity at a later age.”
Teenagers will now be able to use the fitness suite as part of the MORE membership which costs just £39 per month per family (Ts and Cs apply). For more information on our membership options, visit antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/more
