The world’s big­gest tram­po­line park, based in Ruther­glen, is aim­ing to give se­niors a new ‘leap’ of life.

Flip Out Glas­gow has launched tram­polin­ing ses­sions for the over 60s.

The ses­sions started at the week­end to co­in­cide with the United Na­tions’ In­ter­na­tional Day of the Old Per­son.

To give over 60s the chance to give it a try, Flip Out is of­fer­ing jumpers the chance to bring a se­nior friend or fam­ily mem­ber along be­tween 10-11am, Mon­day to Fri­day.

Ge­orge Gal­lacher, gen­eral man­ager at Flip Out Glas­gow, said: “There’s strong ev­i­dence to show that peo­ple who are ac­tive have a lower risk of heart dis­ease, stroke, type 2 di­a­betes and many more health con­di­tions.

“Tram­polin­ing is an ideal form of ex­er­cise for any age be­cause it’s a work-out for the whole body, and the mind. Not only that but it’s a good way to meet new peo­ple and above all have fun.”

The over 60s ses­sions take place ev­ery week day, priced at £7. In­cluded in the price is a cup of tea or cof­fee and bis­cuits in the café.

Flip Out is based at 89a Southcroft Road.
