Junior gym and family fit

Junior gym and family fit

Young people from the age of eight years old can come along for a supervised workout at either our junior gym or family fit sessions.

Find out about:

Junior gym at the Healthy Living Centre and Queen's Park Sports Centre

Junior gym is for children aged 10 to 13 years old where after being shown how to use the cardio and easyline equipment in the fitness suite correctly and safely by an instructor, young people can enjoy a great workout at the Healthy Living Centre and Queens Park Sports Centre 

No weight machines are allowed to be used during these sessions.

See our fitness timetable for junior gym times, or check out our full price list for the cost of these sessions.


Over 14's 

Children aged 14+ are able to use the gym at any time with one of our memberships. There are also a number of fitness classes children aged 14+ can join in on which are highlighted on the junior fitness timetables.

Please note those aged 14+ can use resistance weight machines but cannot use free weights until 16+.

Family fit

Families can work out together on the cardio and easyline equipment at our family fit sessions, which take place in the fitness suites at both our centres. 

Children will be shown how to use the equipment safely and must be supervised by their parent or guardian at all times*.

Family fit sessions are for children aged eight and above and take place at Queen's Park Sports Centre and the Healthy Living Centre on Saturdays and Sundays between 9am and noon.

Family fit is FREE for active fitness family and Motiv8 members, or see our pay as you go prices.

* The supervising adult must have previously had a gym induction session so they know how to use the equipment safely.


Booking for junior gym and family fit isn't essential, but some junior gym sessions are very popular and can be sold out. To book a junior gym session please contact the Healthy Living Centre or Queen's Park Sports Centre, for family fit just turn up on the day.

You will need Active Chesterfield leisure cards to be able to attend junior gym and family fit sessions. Find out more here.


Please contact us as soon as you know that you need to cancel your junior gym session so that we can offer it to someone else. See our cancellations page for full details.
