UPDATED: Get Fit with Baraka in 2019

17 January 2019

Young people can start 2019 the right way by joining one of Baraka's weekly fitness sessions.

On Thursdays, girls’ fitness classes take place between 5:30 and 7:00 pm at Canalside House on Ladbroke Grove, W10 5AA. Taught by a qualified coach, the sessions include boxing and aim to improve the girls’ general fitness and strength and encourage them into healthy habits.

On Fridays and Saturdays, boys’ under-14 boxing takes place between 5:30 and 7:00pm in the new venue: Canalside Centre, Canal Way, W10 5AY.

On the same days at the same venue, older youths’ boxing takes place beetween 7:00 and 9:00pm

After training, the boys eat together and have time with their coach and youth worker, Mo, who talks to them about employment and training opportunities, crime and any other issues the boys raise, including gang culture and drugs.

The groups also do canoeing, cooking and art. Residential trips are planned.

To book your child into one of the classes please email: Mo1sports@yahoo.co.uk or abdullahi@barakacommunityassociation.com / telephone: 07753177748 or 02089640606
