Fitness First
Fitness First are offering free holiday membership for teens

Hats off to Fitness First gyms for encouraging 14-18 year old teenagers into the gym, with free holiday membership. If you have teenagers who are keen to get fit and wondering how to fill their days after the end of term then check out the FFIT (Fitness First Initiative for Teens) program which runs during school holidays. Dates, which differ between states, can be found here. Free use of the gym is between 10.30am to 3pm (or CBD 9 11 & 2 4).
Exercise makes you feel great
Fitness First is making fitness easily available to teens

There are 3 easy steps to follow to participate:
1. Download a pre-exercise questionnaire
2. Complete and have signed by a parent or guardian.
3. Contact your nearest Fitness First gym to book a time for your induction.
Gym induction
A qualified instructor will show you how to safely use the equipment

During the induction, which lasts around 45mins to an hour, a qualified instructor will show you how to safely use the equipment. You'll need to bring the questionnaire, comfortable shoes and clothes, a water bottle and a sweat towel. You will be given a timetable of available group fitness classes. These range from yoga to Pilates, body pump to cycling. Note that free weights are for over 16s. TV screens are in front of the bikes at our local gym so you can select a channel and plug in headphones while you cycle. There is also a swimming pool and sauna.
Fitness classes
Join the group fitness classes
After your induction you will be given a membership card and a lanyard, which you are required to use each time you visit the club. A Fitness First bag and sweat towel are also issued when you sign up.

Fitness for teens
Free gym access during school holidays until you leave school

Once your membership is organized, you will be given access everyday of the school holidays until you leave school. The induction only needs to be done once. So before your teenager tells you there is nothing to do in the holidays, encourage them to take up the free holiday membership and use the gym to get fit.
