Parent Fitness Fridays & Monday Running Club


Fitness Fridays is a social exercise session for everyone from the complete beginner to those who exercise regularly. It includes some jogging, some walking (if preferred) & some heart-rate raising activities – all done in a fun, friendly & supportive environment. The session lasts for approx. 45-minutes & starts at 8:45am; straight after the school drop off; finishing at approx. 9:30am-9:45am every Friday come rain or shine! Fitness Fridays is open to all - not just parents of children at Ivy Lane School - anyone can join us. As is our Monday Run Club - see below.

Monday Run Club. Emily Ward, a TA and parent, heads up the running club which meets under the canopy just after the school drop off at 8:45am. If you would like to join in, just turn up on a Monday morning in your kit! All ages are welcome, young and not so young, ladies and gents and also anyone who isn’t a parent at Ivy Lane as this is also an open club for everyone in the community.



Fitness Friday Update.
Our Fitness Friday group continues to grow in strength.

We have over 20 regulars now who come along (when they can) to our morning sessions in John Coles Park. No pressure on anyone, free of charge and open to all in our community. It's such a great atmosphere, very laid back and friendly with everyone supportuing each other & providing encouragement & laughs!

Every Friday from 8:45am-9:30am-9:45am.
As we all know, the benefits of exercise can’t be underestimated, not just for their overall health benefits (lowering the risk of heart disease, diabetes etc), but exercise is fantastic for your overall mental wellbeing. Studies also show that those who exercise with a partner or in a group are more likely to stick with it long term and company makes time go by quicker!


Our school vision.
Promoting sports and healthy lifestyles is one of our school visions. We hope the addition of a parents fitness session becomes as popular as the children’s running club which started with 7 and now has 30 children running regularly every week. 

Helping to promote a 'Healthier You'.
Fitness Fridays and Monday Run Club are 'open' groups, so if you are interested in joining us, please call the school office on: 01249 652 556, e-mail Tracy Broadhurst, our Admin Officer: (this e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it), or simply come along on any Friday or Monday during term time and meet us under the canopy by the school gates.

A very warm welcome awaits you at Ivy Lane School's Fitness sessions!
