At Astro Active Centre we provide a range of activities for children of all ages, centred around health, fitness and fun, including:

All our team members have completed the Children First Training Programme and have attained certification from the HSE.  Our team is fully qualified in a variety of sports and activities.

 

Teen Fitness

Astro Active Centre offers fully supervised after-school gym fitness sessions tailored for the specific needs of teenagers.   Regular exercise is proven to improve not only physical health but also mental health and can help deal with the challenges that students face in everyday life.  These sessions are an ideal way for teenagers not involved in team sports to increase physical activity.  Equally, they can supplement team training by focussing on strength and body conditioning.

Sessions will be tailored for each individual and a programme devised using a combination of cardio-vascular workouts and resistance training using body weight and free weight exercises.

These sessions are available from 4pm to 6pm from Tuesdays to Thursdays, with a 45-minute duration.  The last session is at 5.15pm.  These are available to teenagers aged 13 to 16 years.

€4 per session.
€30 for 12 sessions.

Discounted student gym membership rates are also available for students aged 17 and over.
