Pictured below is Indo Board Master Trainer, Kevin Hubble with some of the school children at Sturminster Newton after they received their Indo Board after school club Certificates. Indofitness is a school-sponsored Indo Board fitness program that runs in after school clubs in five schools in North Dorset, the other four being, Shaftesbury, Blandford, Gillingham and Sherborne. The classes have been delivered for the last two years with lottery funding and next year will be done with Sport Unlimited funding. The children attend for six weeks and after an initial introduction to the equipment and a “beginner’s” lesson, they then work towards completing tasks on the Indo Board each week under the watchful eye of the Indofitness Trainers. This culminates in them being awarded a Certificate at the end of the course. ” The club is always enjoyable” says trainer Jase Fern, “Over the weeks you see the children grow in confidence, come out of their shells and express themselves through their mastery of the Indo Board Balance Trainer. It’s really satisfying as a trainer to deliver these classes.”
