Juniors get active for FREE at the Copper Box Arena open weekend

The Copper Box Arena, on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, is hosting a free open weekend for anyone between the age of 11 and 15 years old to come and workout in the gym for free from Saturday 13 May to Sunday 14 May.

Better, the UK’s largest provider of public leisure and swimming facilities who operate the Copper Box Arena and London Aquatics Centre, aim to get more people, more active, more often in their local communities.

The open weekend hopes to encourage more juniors in the local community to stay healthy and utilise the world-class facilities in the area. All juniors can train for free in the Copper Box Arena gym across the weekend if accompanied by adult. Two free circuit fitness classes are also available, for all ages, on Saturday at 11:30am to 12:30pm and 1:00pm to 2:00pm.

Juniors can get a health and fitness membership with Better which gives them access to the facilities on the Park during all opening hours if accompanied by an adult. The membership also gives juniors unaccompanied access at certain times to supervised sessions at the gym at the Copper Box Arena, from 11 years old, and access to the swimming facilities at the London Aquatics Centre, from 8 years old.

Miranda, 34 from Stratford is a volunteer for Inclusive Sports Events helping promote sport for the disabled, uses her experience and the services at the Copper Box Arena to inspire her son Cian, 13, to live a healthy lifestyle, said,

“We wanted a fun positive weekly routine out of the house that we enjoy. The gym at the Copper Box Arena gives us just that, plus we have encouragement and inspiration from the gym’s Fitness Instructor, Keith. Keith has built a personal program for us each, to help us follow our exercise routines.

“We chose a Better Junior membership at the Copper Box Arena because we knew it was an old Olympic facility where athletes still train, so the facilities would be very good if not excellent, which they are indeed and the times of Junior Gym work well to fit around school hours. I wanted to encourage and support my son to exercise; the staff helped and supported me to get the right membership that worked with my son.”

Across the weekend and for the rest of May there will be no joining fee for new Better Junior Health & Fitness members at the Copper Box Arena. Use promotion code JUNIOR15 to take advantage of this offer.
