This is the first time that British Gymnastics has teamed up with Somerset Leisure to roll out a fitness programme designed especially for children in the pre-school age group. Programme organisers hope pre-schoolers will catch the gymnastics bug early.

The FUNdamentals classes will include basic but fun gymnastic elements to help develop balance and coordination, as well as social independence.
The Programme underpins the Early Years Foundation Stage, developing children's confidence in the world around them.
It is aimed at children between 18 months and four years old.
They will learn through a variety of fun themes which will help them develop social skills and interact with other children.

Head of Sport for Somerset Leisure, Steve Hughes, said: "The FUNdamentals Programme will provide an excellent foundation for children to go on and enjoy sports and activities later in life.
Parents will accompany younger children at the classes, so it is something for all the family to enjoy."
The classes are at a number of leisure centres managed by Somerset Leisure, including Shepton Mallet and Caryford Fitness & Leisure Centre.
