Our trainer will walk you through the correct process and use of equipment and run a short class afterwards.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Time: 11.00 – 12.30pm

Aligned Leisure’s Street Team will be within the vicinity of the exercise equipment so if the kids don’t wish to use the exercise equipment, they can have some fun with the games and sports equipment from the Street Team Jeep.
