A 16-year-old Accrington and Rossendale College student will be the first to bring a popular new exercise craze to the Ribble Valley.
Boogie Bounce is an exercise programme undertaken on mini trampolines, complete with a safety bar. The programme is choreographed to the latest music which helps participants have fun while getting fit.
Former Ribblesdale pupil Georgia-Leigh Burns will start the classes in Clitheroe in the next six to eight weeks. Currently studying for a BTECH Level 3 diploma in Sport and pursuing her dream of becoming a fitness instructor, Georgia also leads classes at Carter Leisure and EL Fitness, in Clitheroe.
Georgia commented: “After taking part in classes and personal training from a really young age, I found a love of fitness and decided I wanted to make a career out of it and become a fitness instructor. I love seeing people get healthier and helping them achieve their fitness goals and have already completed my level 2 spinning qualification.
“I heard about Boogie Bounce and it sounded really good – it’s for all ages, abilities, shapes and sizes and most of all, it is low impact on the joints so doesn’t cause any strain to any parts of the body. Anybody can do it, including people with mobility and back problems and it works every muscle group in the body, including facial muscles. I can’t wait to make Clitheroe bounce!”
