Burn It Youth Academy

Fitness designed for 8 - 15 year olds


A great opportunity to get kids active and some fresh air in the great outdoors.  Our sessions are built on sociability, the sessions are safe and fun and like our adult classes, attract like-minded individuals.


We put a huge focus on education for our Youth Academy members on exercise, muscles, anatomy and physiology, cardiovascular, nutrition, overall health and wellbeing and the importance of general fitness.   


Whether you’re 15 or 50, one of the big Burn It attractions are our sessions are FUN!  Whether it’s ‘Tunnel Tig’ for a warm or ‘Press Up Rock Paper Scissors,’ our Youth Academy members will leave having had a ball! 


Unlike the gym where all kids can do is walk on treadmills and cycle stationary bikes, our unique outdoor fitness sessions offer something completely different.  Suitable for all levels, regardless of fitness, our sessions are different every week.

The Staggering Stats 

Around 14% of UK children are estimated to be obese.

A “staggering” one in four teenagers are clinically obese by the age of 15.

The study of more than 370,000 children shows that 25 per cent of girls and 24 per cent of boys between the ages of 10 and 15 are now obese.

Whilst these stats are staggering, there is more to that.  Think health implications later in life, the knock in confidence, the mental health issues in teenagers, the lack of education and importance on fitness and health. 

50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by age 24. 10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental problem3, yet 70% of children and adolescents who experience mental health problems have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
