Fitness Newsletter 23 June

It’s the last week of our COMPLEMENTARY FITNESS Classes so come to as many classes this week as you can – times and venues on the Classes Page of our website.
We’re then off for a 2 week break and return from Tue 15 July. See our summer class dates below too.


Sorry: Fitness Summer lunch cancelled– sorry to let you know but our fitness lunch to Café Andaluz this Friday 25 June has been cancelled due to a bereavement. We can have a think about possibly re-arranging it later in the summer.

Summer class dates for your diary:
Wed & Fri 9.30am and Tuesdays + Thurs 7.30pm from 15 July – 22 Aug.
Classes in Dreghorn Loan Hall are Wed & Fri 9.30am and Thursdays 7.30pm as well as Tuesday 7.30pm class in Craiglockhart Church*.

*I’ve still to hear from Craiglockhart Church when the painter will be painting the Large Hall as it may affect one Tuesday class in July or Aug. When I find out, I’ll let you know asap.

Something to think about
“I work out because ___________________________” fill in the blank and let me know.

“To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life, we must constantly strive to acquire strong healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limit of our ability” – Joseph Pilates
“every moment of our lives can be the beginning of great things” – Joseph Pilates

Just a few of the benefits of Fitness Pilates:
v Provides for spinal articulation and movement through the spine, stand taller and look slimmer.
v Fitness Pilates improves our efficiency of movement and ability to execute movements through dynamic stabilisation.
v Through alignment of your posture, you are able to move with less strain to muscles and joints.

Eat for the body you want, not the body you have. Be Fit Be Healthy.
