Mayfield U15s enjoying FloatFit at Castleton Leisure Centre
In preparation for the upcoming season, Rochdale Mayfield Rugby League under 15s completed a 'FloatFit' session at Castleton Health and Leisure Centre last week (Thursday 15 April).
The 12 boys were put through their paces on the new float mats, which helps improve core strength whilst completing the fitness circuit.
Created by AquaPhysical, FloatFit is a group exercise class with a twist – taking a classic 30-minute bodyweight workout and applying it to a special inflatable floating exercise mat called the AquaBase.
Team coach, Emon Ratu said: "Castleton swimming pool is a fantastic community-run facility - right in the heart of the village.
“The fitness sessions with Jo are great for the players’ core strength and all round fitness, whilst being really good fun. We would recommend anyone to give the sessions a try.”
Castleton Health and Leisure Centre’s facility manager, Jo Potts added: “FloatFit is an amazing core and cardio workout which is fun for any age group. No matter which class you choose, you’ll definitely reap the benefits without realising how hard you’re working.”
Mayfield under 15s (year 10s) start their 2021 season in May and new players are always welcome to give rugby league a try - contact Simon on 07920 865106 for details.
The centre re-opened for use last week now coronavirus restrictions are easing, and was declared open by its oldest swimmer, Harry Smith, on his 88th birthday
