Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs franchise introduces new class

Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs, which provides diet and fitness advice to members, has strengthened its franchise by offering a new Kids 2 programme.

Kids 2 is a six-week programme that enables a child over the age of 10 years and a parent to attend classes together. The pair participate in fun activities, which offer practical and motivational advice, take part in nutritional games and quizzes, fitness circuits and learn about healthy meal planning and preparation. There is a big emphasis on everyone involved having fun.

The programme was established to combat the growing number of children that are overweight in the UK. Classes will soon be available at Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs in towns and cities across the UK with expansion plans for the majority of franchise owners to be holding classes by the end of 2009.

Rosemary Conley CBE, founder of Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs, said: 'This innovative programme has been developed exclusively by Rosemary Conley Diet and Fitness Clubs and is the first scheme of its kind to operate in the UK. Kids 2 provides children with the opportunity to participate in a programme which is non-threatening and non-competitive where the emphasis is on fun, fitness and healthy eating. It is not a slimming club for kids. It will really help them to feel successful and positive about their physical pursuits.

'It is important to establish ways to combat the growing trend of obesity in the UK, especially amongst the younger generation. While we already offer exercise sessions in our hugely popular classes, making this programme available to children is a natural progression for us. All of our instructors are fully qualifies to teach exercise and nutrition already, but they have also completed a professional training course for Kids 2 to enable them to deliver a safe and effective class including children. They are perfectly placed to help families learn how to change their lifestyles to become healthier just by making a few simple changes.'
