There will also be other activities running throughout the day, including Small Group Training Taster sessions from 7.30pm-8.15pm and 8.30pm-9.15pm and circuit sessions from 7.30-8.30pm.

A range of free classes will be held at Central Park Leisure Centre, including Body Combat from 9.30-10.15am and 6.15-7pm, Body Pump from 10.30-11.15am, Body Balance from 7.15-8pm and Zuma from 8.15-9pm.
