Determination and commitment has paid off for a young girl from Giltbrook after she was awarded a new BMX bike in exchange for points she earned improving her fitness

Ten year-old Saskia Bexon picked up her BMX Bike last month, alongside her family after earning over 10,000 points during the last nine months by completing various gym challenges including running distances of up to 5km on the treadmill and using the rowing machine.

She is the seventh Child to reach 10,0000 points since Broxtowe Borough Council-run Kimberley Leisure Centre’s Youth Gym opened in 2009.

Saskia’s mum, Maxine said: “Saskia was extremely motivated and committed to improving her fitness and visited the gym regularly. She showed real dedication to achieve the goals set for her and win the top prize.”

Children who attend the gym can exchange their points for a wide range of prizes, including a private gym party.
