Just to remind that all classes are ON this week, yay.

Then next week, we only have classes on Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday then we’re ‘off’ (or I will be) so no classes on 1, 5, 6, 7 or 8 July.

We’re then back from 12 July onwards.

Just to let you know that last week, I’d emailed the Thursday class to ask if they would be able to make a class on Thurs 14 July (numbers have been low in the Thursday 7pm class lately) and enough have said that they would so thank you if you replied letting me know one way or the other if you can or can’t make it.

I know that some of you will be on holiday that week.

Anyway, all classes on the week of 12 July too.

Until then though, please join as many classes as you can this week & up to & including next Thursday for more ways to improve our general fitness levels, strength, flexibility, co-ordination, balance (I need that) and posture.


Here’s a lovely comment we received about last Thursday’s fitness yoga class: “Thank you for a great class yesterday.  Hard work but I thoroughly enjoyed it”


You may be interested to learn about the benefits of doing squats regularly/daily:

  • Tones the entire body
  • Prevents injuries
  • Builds confidence
  • Helps perform daily tasks much easier
  • Great for other sports/activities/every day life, As stated by professionals like those at


Q: Do we do squats in all of our classes?  Hmm let me think… em, yep we do, definitely, oh yeah and then some!  It’s always “just 4 more” or “do you feel it” (ie everywhere) or “have you done enough / say when” and no one wants to be the first to say “when” but then again, I can see you mouthing the word so I know we’ve probably done enough, ha.

I love to hear what others are saying and I thought I’d share some tweets that you might find interesting:

I love this one by @drmarkhyman “When it comes to longevity, the goal isn’t just to live as long as possible.  The true objective is to live as vibrantly and energetically as possible, for as long as possible”.

He also says: “Did you know that highly processed foods can lead to a 50 to 100% increased risk for clinical depression?  What we eat impacts our brains and mental health—food does affect mood”.


And this is from @DrFrankLipman: “Food is information that tells your entire biology what to do and when to do it, but junk food is like malware on your computer: scrambled information that over time leads to a major hardware crash”.


Not a tweet but a quote: “in the end, it’s not what you’ve spent your money on, but so much more of what you’ve spent your time on.  Buy up as many memories as you can” JmStorm

Looking forward to seeing you & working out with you this week as always.
