Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Fun, Fitness and Family Bounce

A FITNESS fanatic mum has given a whole new meaning to the term ‘bouncing babies’ – by offering parent and child exercise classes at a trampoline activity centre.

Personal trainer and mum Madeleine Cordukes has teamed up with Xtreme Bounce at the Royal Quays, to create a fun and unique workout for parents that means they don’t have to worry about childcare.

The 25-year-old, who already runs Slingafitness classes across North Tyneside, will put parents through their paces in the centre’s 12 activity areas which include trampolines, battle beams and ninja warrior course as part of the new Fun, Fitness and Family Bounce classes.

She said: “I am so excited to be offering such a unique fitness classes, this is by far my most fun and inclusive set-up so far!

“I am always looking for different ways that parents and carers can stay active, without having to worry about guilt or childcare – and these classes at Xtreme Bounce fit all of that criteria.

“I want to make sure it’s about the children having fun as well as the adults, and this is a perfect place for kids of all ages to come and entertain themselves.

“There are 12 activities we can use with some circuits in there too, but it will be tailored for all fitness levels and we will certainly have a giggle!”

The classes, which will run every Tuesday at 10am from next week (28th) will give parents who want to stay active the opportunity to work-out, safe in the knowledge that their children can also have fun on the activities – which are staffed at all times by Xtreme Bounce.

Fun, Fitness and Family Bounce at Xtreme Bounce already looks set to be a huge hit for busy parents who were offered a free trial session last week.

Mum-of-two Louise Ellison, who attended the class, said: “This is a brilliant idea! It means I get to come in, do some exercise and the kids can have a bounce around too.”

The 37-year-old, who was there with son Luc, 14 months, added: “This is a fantastic place for children of all ages. It’s quite relaxed and you don’t have to worry about your children being bored. I will definitely be coming back.”

A sentiment shared by mum-of-three Jennifer Ironside. The 32-year-old, there with 15-month-old Coco, said: “This is a lovely thing to be able to do with my daughter. I get the benefit of exercise while she gets to have fun with soft play and trampolines! A perfect activity for all.”

Centre manager Jennifer Newman said: “This will be a brilliant addition to our centre. We are all about families having fun here and our facilities offer a fantastic work-out for both adults and children.

“We are very excited about Fun, Fitness and Family Bounce and look forward to welcoming lots of parents and children through our doors.”

Fun, Fitness and Family Bounce cost £8 for the fitness and also use of Xtreme Bounce facilities during and for an hour after the session.

Participants will also get discounts on refreshments at the North Shield’s centre.
