Welcome to Fitness At Gurnard

We are coming back live and in person!

So we can open on 2nd December and I am pleased to announce that we will open at 00:01 in the morning for those of you who cannot wait to get back.
We will have the pool open, gym open and we will have the first post lockdown 2 Bodypump class (probably in the country!) at 00:05 with Anna! So who is coming to join her!

 

All Covid secure procedures will be in place as pre lockdown 2 and we cannot wait to get you all back & normal operating hours will then follow.

So the big thing is we need to get the equipment returned.
2 Sessions for return of equipment.
Monday 30th November 10 till 2 we will be here for equipment drop off.
Tuesday 1st December from 8am until 6pm we will be here for equipment drop off and membership join up in the shop.
If you cannot make either of these sessions, please email me to arrange an alternative 5 minute slot to drop off but I imagine most of you will be able to oblige.

I am also pleased to announce that we will be continuing with a limited number of zoom  classes for those of you who need to continue to shield or are shielding for others. This will be listed on the normal class timetable alongside our live classes.

I want to thank all of you for continuing with your memberships who could and thanks to the amazing instructors who have streamed over 160 classes this month. It certainly means that if we end up in tier 3 where we can keep the gym and pool open but no group fitness we will be able to continue online and not close at all.
Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you all back.

Hi All,

How good has it to be back! It has been great to see you all back and makes it so worthwhile to see the smiles on the instructors faces to be teaching live again & the lifeguards doing what they do best in keeping you safe.

As always we are forever evolving so the big news this week is we have a completely new class on the timetable!

Qigong will be added to Tuesdays at 19:15 with a long time member now instructor Lisa Roberts.
What is Qigong?

Qigong can be described as a mind-body-spirit practice that improves one's mental and physical health by integrating posture, movement, breathing technique, self-massage, sound, and focused intent.
This will be a great addition to the timetable & again keeps us at the forefront of compete fitness solutions on the Island.

I am so lucky to have so many great instructors who work here with their different methodology's there is always something that you will find that will work for you. To often people end up following one persons philosophy to fitness which although may work for one person doesn't always work for someone else.
Luckily here we are all encompassing so you can;
1. Smash it out workouts that you curse while doing but feel so good afterwards
2. Stretch and strengthen classes that you feel invigorated and refreshed during and after.
3. Super cardio classes to get your lungs going.
4. Dance classes to get you moving
5. Aqua classes for fun in the pool.

Above all our classes are designed for you to have fun, variation and above all get the results YOU are looking for.

Let me know what your plans are for this week and just to remind you we have;

✅Covid secure environment
✅Varied classes throughout the week including online .... Lets be honest although Spin classes are good we all need a little more so why be somewhere that only does spin!
✅Fully qualified instructors
✅Dedicated space for classes - not an afterthought in the corner of a gym
✅Modern up to date sound system for classes.
✅Modern lighting for classes
✅25m pool
✅Additional coached functional fitness suite with new equipment supplied by Wolverson
