Please note that, in order to facilitate the Pemberton refurbishment programme, SHOKK Gym has now closed. The Pemberton Centre will continue to run supervised gym sessions in the main gym for young people aged 14-15 (now known as Activators).
The Activators programme at the Nene Gym is currently designed for all young people aged 8-15 (at age 16 young people can join the ‘senior’ gym).
Designated machines are only available during the session - this is to ensure the safety of the group.
The sessions are fun and designed to give young people a chance to be in an adult enviroment before they can become as Aspirations Member at age 16.
When the refurbished gyms open at both Nene and Pemberton, they will be governed by the new UKactive guidelines which recommend that fitness suites should only be for 11 year olds and over. With this in mind, we will provide fitness equipment suitable for families to train alongside each other, benefitting from more social interaction and quality time.

|*on Saturdays and Sundays between 2pm and 3pm Activators can use the Gym at Nene if accompanied by an adult who is a member of Aspirations|
Adult and Child/Parent and Tot Swimming Lessons
Start your child's development in water and build their confidence early. The classes follow the structured ASA programme and are led by qualified ASA teachers.
As an introduction to water confidence for very young children we offer swimming instruction as follows:
Adult and Child Lessons - this level is designed for both parent/adults with their babies/young children (age 1-4) to give them a safe and enjoyable first experience of the swimming pool. Parent/adults are expected to play a full part in the lessons, helping their child develop water skills and confidence through play/nursery ryhmes with the child working towards our Duckling certificate and badge.
Frogs - Children who have attended the adult/child course or who are 4 years old. This group is designed for pre-school children of 4-5years. Learning more skills independently through play and gaining their own confidence within the group.
Our Swim School programme is designed to provide first class swimming tuition at value for money prices. It provides swimmers with the opportunity to learn and experience the fun and security of an excellent swimming development programme.
Our programmes follow the guidance of the ASA (Amateur Swimming Association) National Teaching Plan.
The swimmer’s journey, following the National Plan for teaching swimming, results in their development of a wide range of skills and techniques. They will become competent, confident and safe swimmers with the ability to build on these skills further developing a wide range of water-based sports.
Children should be taking part in activities that build their fundamental movement skills, with the emphasis being ‘Learning through FUN’.
Our sites have supervised play areas where you can leave your child(ren) whilst you spend some 'you time' and take the opportunity to enjoy the various activities we have on offer.

Rookie Lifeguard Programme
The Rookie Lifeguard Programme is the junior award scheme of the Royal Royal Lifesaving Society UK (RLSS UK). For most children Rookie Lifeguards will be their first opportunity to explore water safety and alternative safe aquatic play. The skills taught will prepare Rookies to take better care of themselves, their family and friends, and give them the information they need to promote water safety in their day-to-day activities.
The Rookie awards contain survival, rescue and sport skills as well as life support and water safety elements. The Rookie Lifeguard Programme fulfils all of the Key Stage 2 water safety elements of the National Curriculum.
Age restrictions apply: 8 to 13 years of age only.

The next course for trampolining starts in September 2013 (subject to completion of building works during the refurbishment of the Pemberton Centre)
Learn how to do acrobatics whilst bouncing on a trampoline!
The Pemberton Centre offers trampolining sessions for children and young people aged 4+.
Exercise on a trampoline is not only fun but will enhance overall coordination, strength, flexibility, timing and balance. Rebounding will exercise and strengthen every muscle, organ and cell in your body.
Studies by NASA scientists show that rebounding is 68% more effective than jogging even though it requires less effort! You can also develop both upper and lower body strength.
Apart from being great fun, bouncing on a trampoline brings a number of very real health and wellbeing benefits including:
