Welcome to Complementary Fitness, I’m Susan, an experienced Fitness Instructor who specialises in teaching all-level Fitness Pilates, Freestyle Fitness Yoga, PiYo (fitness Pilates/Yoga combo), resistance, strength & toning classes for men & women. I’m motivated, enthusiastic and committed to helping you achieve your fitness, health and lifestyle goals and look forward to you joining us and be part of our Complementary Fitness journey. All of our classes were forced to close mid-March BUT we’re now planning on doing outdoor, fresh air, open space classes and sessions in Paties Road Recreation Grounds, Katesmill Road, EH14 1JF from Tuesday 18 August – see below
Until we can get back to our usual indoor classes in Dreghorn Loan church hall, Colinton and Craiglockhart church hall, we all agree and feel it’s safer for now, to exercise together outdoors weather-permitting. We’re planning on starting with 2 early evening sessions (6.15pm start) on a Tuesday & Thursday starting on Tuesday 18 + 20 August and 2 morning sessions (9.30am) on a Wednesday & Friday starting from 19 & 21 Aug respectively. It’s been soooo long since we exercised together but I look forward to working out with you in our community based classes where we’ll soon start to build up our core and overall strength, posture, balance, flexibility and co-ordination again. Don’t worry: we’ll take it easy and build up fitness etc over time.
I’ll still bring my speaker and we’ll have music to exercise to but we’ll respect volume levels for neighbours.
Classes info is on the Classes Where/When page already and if you’re not sure where Paties Road Rec Grounds are, please let me know but detailed info is in 3/6/19 newsletter or more recent 10/8/20 newsletter.
Classes are £5 each and normally, you pay cash (which you can still do or pay for a few in advance) but if you prefer, you can pay by bank transfer and I can give you my details personally/by private message.
Complementary Fitness classes are more than ‘just fitness’ – our all-level classes are effective, friendly and fun with lots of options and variations to suit all. I hope that you’ll become one of our ‘regulars’ – some class participants have been with us for more than 30 years!!
Did you know that exercise can improve your posture, build strength, flexibility, body confidence and also affect your mindset: regulating your mood and helping you feel positive too? It’s a great stress-buster and can help you clear your mind, feel more focused and happier – especially in these uncertain and stressful times.
We hope you’ll be part of our journey to feeling amazing and having more energy. All classes are for woman (except pregnancy) and they’re for all levels including beginners.
