Teen Gym @ QMU Sports

Over the Easter holidays, QMU Sports trialled a new “Teen Gym” aimed at teenagers aged 12-15 who are interested in fitness. We are pleased to report that the trial was a huge success with around 30 kids taking advantage of our special Easter offer.

We are now working feverishly to make “Teen Gym” a regular occurrence throughout the year and are already looking forward to it taking off again during the summer holidays.

Further news regarding this will be released shortly. In the meantime, if you have any queries regarding this, please contact sportsreception@qmu.ac.uk
