New Animalates Exercise Classes

Wigan Warriors and partners Animalates are launching a series of exercise classes for children aged 4-11 aimed at getting kids more active in a fun and friendly environment.

Animalates is an exercise programme for children which combines pilates, yoga, aerobics and dance and is great for getting kids active every day, improving health, reducing obesity and improving movement skills in a fun environment surrounded by the friendly Animalates Crew of Cheeky the Cheetah, Mikey the Monkey, Roo the Kangaroo, Snap the Crocodile and Pat the Penguin from the puppet posture police!

The dynamic exercise programme launched in 2013 when Animalates became main sponsor of the Wigan Warriors for their playoff and Grand Final run and was initially aimed at schools to improve focus and concentration in the classroom, aiding academic learning through a combination of energising or relaxing adventures.

The programme has been a massive hit and is now rolling out three sessions a week at Wigan Warriors’ Central Park base on Montrose Avenue from the start of March and youngsters can drop in to any of the 45 minute activity sessions on either a Tuesday or Thursday (4-5pm), there is no pre-registration required.

The cost is just £2.50 per person per session, with kids getting a free Animalates t-shirt at their first class.

Animalates Co-Founder and former London Broncos Rugby League player Mark McLinden said:

“Animalates classes are a brand new series of 45 minute exercise adventures for kids aged 4 - 11. The classes feature over 40 moves, games and challenges combining yoga, pilates and aerobics.

“I’d encourage everyone to come along to join in the fun and get ready to jump higher, run faster and stretch further than you ever could before. Oh, and you might even have to tackle a tiger. ROAR!”

The new Animalates classes take place at Central Park on Montrose Avenue in Wigan every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday starting this coming week. The cost is £2.50 per person per session and participants can simply drop in to take part.
