All ages and abilities welcomed to workout at Oak View Academy

Winsford residents are keeping health and fitness in the family thanks to a new club at Oak View Academy.

People of any age, shape, size or ability are welcome to workout together at FitClub classes, held on Wednesdays between 7pm-8pm.

That has encouraged generations of the same family to get in action together under the guidance of John Fielding and partner Kay-Leigh Richardson.

And at just £1 per session, participants are getting plenty of benefit-per-buck.

John said: “It’s great to see everyone come along and get fit together. The children really enjoy it and are usually the ones asking to come back.

“We have people with a full range of abilities, and we are very supportive of one another.

“Kay-Leigh is very spiritual and we wanted to share our knowledge of fitness and wellbeing and give something back.

“We ask for a small payment to cover costs, but that’s all.

“When we approached Oak View to do the class there, they were really keen.”

Participants are already seeing results.

Donna Moreton, who joined six weeks ago, says it has helped her lose weight.

She added: “I can now run around a field with a football, I have more energy to play with my children and look forward to each session. It’s great fun.”

Fiona Whittaker, headteacher at Oak View Academy, said the school feels it is important to support initiatives like FitClub.

She explained: “We are always keen to back community groups that offer benefit to our community. Getting fit is great for the body and the mind!”

A session is also held in Hartford, on Sundays.
