Recent reports have highlighted the impact both medically and financially that childhood obesity will have on the country in years to come.
So now is the time to work together to combat the problem.
The NRG junior programme at its Knocknacarra gym offers kids a huge range of classes so they can be sure to find something they like.
There are gymnastics, karate, ballet and a host of others held at convenient and flexible times throughout the week which will suit parents and children. Children from age one to 12 are catered for.
Qualified instructors Clair-Louise and Anastasia have been running the programme for more than two years. They are experienced with both beginners and young children, along with helping older or more experienced children to really develop their skills.
With a new term starting on November 2 this is the time to enroll your child in an NRG junior class. Places are limited so booking is essential and can be done in the Knocknacarra club or by calling 091 585800.
