Fit for Life? Dundee Experts Tell it Like it is!
Published on 9 April 2014
How do you define ‘health’ and ‘exercise’? Two family events, featuring local experts, will descend on Dundee Science Centre this week (Friday 11 and Saturday 12 April) to give us the facts on keeping fit and healthy.
On Friday 11 April 2014, Louise Johnstone, the personal trainer behind Dundee-based ‘Louise’s PT-4-U’ will give a passionate and interactive talk about turning people’s lives around, with the chance for both adults and children to explore different ways of upping their fitness, from running to obstacle races! Louise will be at the Centre from midday until 3pm, with her talk taking place at 1.30pm.
Meanwhile, Saturday 12 April will see scientists from the Division of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Abertay University dispel the myths surrounding health and fitness, and separate fact from fiction. They will be giving a short talk at 1.30pm, after which visitors can ask questions and receive advice.
Both ‘Meet the Expert’ sessions are part of Dundee Science Centre’s energetic Easter event, ‘Speed, Strength, Stamina’ where visitors can explore everything from how top athletes prepare for the challenges of a lifetime to what a weightlifter eats for breakfast!
The exciting and interactive show, which is being held in conjunction with the Division of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Abertay University and Dundee Academy of Sport, will run until Tuesday 22 April 2014.
With a high-energy, 30-minute show running regularly throughout the day, and a challenge-filled, drop-in sports zone, ‘Speed, Strength, Stamina’ is ideal for a family audience and is included as part of normal admission.
Dundee Science Centre is open daily from 10am-5pm. For further information, please telephone 01382 228800 or visit http://www.dundeesciencecentre.org.uk/.
