About Us

Our charter is to empower the youth of today and tomorrow, in building a healthy and active lifestyle.We encourage all children aged between 5-15 to move away from the TV and Computers, to get up, get motivated and get fit. The kids will be provided a fun filled atmosphere, where they will interact in activities, games and exercises designed to make a difference, improve body composition, become fitter, faster & stronger whilst building confidence and friendships.

 It works for Every’Body’ ! 




Myself and my family have lived in Chelmsford for over 10 years. Facts and Figures relating to child and adult obesity continue to rise, shock and startle. I wanted to do something about it – Focused predominately at getting children active & having FUN ! In Jan 2014 my logo was designed and patented and I started to set the ball rolling. Officially in Feb 2017 Area 515 Fitness was born.

Area 515 Fitness is a unique idea coming to Chelmsford. It is fundamentally aimed at 5-15 year old children.

AREA 515 SO Far

Phase 1 was Youth S&C – Saturday clubs for Individuals. The class is at 11am. It started as individual classes but now joint together.

Phase 2 was Sports Teams – being offered Pre, in or Post season training – on weekday evenings or weekends.

Phase 3 was Family Fitness Session – held on Tuesday Evenings 7pm-8pm – and Saturday mornings 11am – allowing parents to workout with their children – DON’T JUST DROP YOUR KIDS OFF – JOIN THEM !

Phase 4 will be Birthday Parties – initially offered at weekends and holidays.

 THe future of area 515

Phase 5 Will be to contact School about after school Clubs. Aditionally, we can also offer the ‘less sporty’ individuals to join our club for 3-6 months, which will help them achieve their ‘Sports’ section of their Duke of Edinburgh Award.

Phase 6 will be our own venue kitted out with the latest equipment and hi tech fitness offerings.
