Thanet Council - Free sports activities to start January 14th

Adults in Thanet can now get involved in free sports activities to help kick start the New Year.
Sport 4 Life is an eight week sports activity programme which is being run by Thanet District Council’s Sport Matters team and local sports providers to offer free activities, from Monday 14 January 2013.
Adults can sign up and try out one or more sports activities, which include Futsal, Netball, Dance, Zumba gold, Light Fitness Workout and Pilates. If participants enjoy the activities they have taken part in, the Sport’s Matters team will link them up with a local club to help them continue their activity.
Cllr. Iris Johnston, Cabinet Member for Community Services, said: “The staff in Sport Matters are doing a great job in motivating and encouraging people to take up a new activity in 2013.

“There are so many barriers stopping people from taking up sport or activities to keep fit and healthy, so this is a brilliant initiative for adults to join up to.

“This eight week FREE programme has been devised to improve your mental and physical strength, and to try to change people’s attitude to keeping fit and healthy. Let’s see the New Year in with a kick or a jump or even a cha cha.”
Sport 4 Life was first launched in January 2011 when more than 50 people took part in a range of sports activities. Last year 118 adults took part.
Jasmin Rose, from St Nicholas at Wade signed up for Kick boxing last year.  
She said: “The course was fantastic and very accessible for beginners to try a new sport.
“I have continued with boxing and self-defence since completing the Sport 4 Life course because throughout the course I found my physical fitness improving. It also gave me the extra motivation to exercise more throughout the week between classes, eat more healthily and I found my overall wellbeing improved.
“I would highly recommend the courses to anyone who is thinking about getting into a new sport or wants to get fit for the New Year.”
