I’m so excited that our Autumn classes start back this week, from Tuesday 1 Sept right up to mid December. It would be great if you book your place in the Tuesday &/or Thursday 7.30pm Fitness Pilates classes and if you can make each week, pay for the block/s to ensure your place and aim to achieve your fitness goals.
You can also pay as you go as we do in our morning classes.

Our brand new 6.35pm CORE COMBAT class starts this week too, on Thursday 3 September in Dreghorn Loan Hall. We’ll work from and strengthening our core, we’ll warm up, stretch then jab, cross, do upper cuts, hooks, shift our weight side-side or forward + back, shuffle to the side then add in more punches ie those jabs etc. We’ll learn about technique, how to protect our face, punch, kick and always work from our core to stay strong. Let’s work off any stress and frustration, learn new moves, keep fit and strong in this 45 min workout also includes an abs section at the end of the combat section. The class will be £5 pay-as-you-go.
Special offer: If you’d like to stay for our 7.30pm Fitness Pilates class too (you can pre-book your place for both), you’ll get both classes for £8! Bargain. Another benefit is that you’ll see big changes in your fitness, strength, core, balance and flexibility.
Please let me know if you’d like a space in either or both classes and I’ll add you to the class lists, thanks.
Core Combat 6.35pm class

Stress and anxiety keep your body in a state of high alert and exercise can help combat (like how I added in ‘combat’ here?) this by burning off adrenalin, relaxing muscles and triggering the release of endorphins – so called ‘happy hormones’. Here’s to your Good Health.

Something to think about:
Weight-bearing exercise and resistance exercises using weights/bands/your own body weight helps improve your bone strength. Continue to exercise regularly to maintain the benefits. Our classes are all weight-bearing exercise classes as we shift our weight side-side, squat, lunge, move, work out with weights/resistance bands and occasionally do press-ups. All good strengthening exercises and good for bone health too.

Drink your 5-a-day. It’s a fast and easy way to increase the nutrients in your diet by adding in (some) fruits and lots of vegetables. I’ve got a Nutribullet and regularly use it to make nutriblast shakes, smoothies and protein shakes too. You can add in mineral-rich greens ie kale, spinach, lettuce, celery and cucumber. You can also add in nuts, seeds or powdered greens to super-charge it. You can buy a Nutribullet anywhere now incl big supermarkets as well as Amazon. Since I bought mine, there’s now a more powerful 900 speed one on the market which I’ll buy next time if/when mine ever runs out (hopefully not any time soon). You also get a book too for lots of ideas, info, recipes and suggestions.
