Half Term, Hogs and Hola!

We've got lots of news to update you with so grab a brew and tuck in.....

First Up - Please note there are no classes next week (W/C 28 Oct) as we're taking a 'busman's' holiday for half term...albeit in the sun. We're hoping to come home with lots of new ideas for sessions...... so beware!

Classes will return from 4th November with one exception.....

Unfortunately due to continual poor numbers in our Monday Night class it's finally time to accept defeat and let it go.

We've tried advertising, changing the format and bringing on board new instructors but unfortunately we've not found the winning formula in this competitive Monday night market.

So it's with regret that we're closing this class with immediate effect.

Thank you so much to the loyal crew who have continued coming week in, week out and we're really sorry to take this class away from you. Should you like to switch to the Wednesday night Body Blast Class or Thursday night Fitsteps class (both at 6.30pm) we should be delighted to see you and would like to offer you a 50% discount on classes in November and December as a way of thank you.

Club members who are affected by this class closure are to be contacted by Di to discuss the implications on your current monthly payments.

A Huge 'Thank you' to Debs, Hayley and Amanda who have delivered some fabulous sessions over this past year. Should you be keen to know where you can find them teaching their other classes please do get in touch for details.

Not liking to take things away without giving something back however, we're keen to see how much interest we have for adding yoga and pilates barre onto our timetable in the New Year. Taster sessions in the next few weeks are in the process of being arranged with a wonderful local instructor Emma Barwise. Please look out for details and get signed up ASAP as spaces will be limited.

All other classes will be returning as usual, but please note the following venue changes:

Tuesday 5th Nov and 3rd Dec

Weight loss support @ 9.30am, Burn 'n' Firm @ 10.15am and Pilates @ 11.15am

Move from St Columbas Church to Upton United Reformed Church.

Pilates dates this half term will be:

Tuesday 5th Nov - Tuesday 10th Dec (St Columbas and Hoole Community Centre classes)

Wednesday 6th Nov-Wednesday 11th Dec (Upton United Reformed Church classes)

Please note Tuesday classes are now FULLY BOOKED but 1 or 2 spaces are available in Wednesday evenings. These are available to book at a cost of £36 for the 6 weeks (discounted for members).

It is also possible that a Thursday am pilates session will be added onto the timetable in the New Year - please do let us know if this would interest you.

Also, if you have reserved a HOG, these will be available for you to pick up in classes on the first week back at a cost of £12.

Not wanting to rush us all towards Christmas but have you seen that the early bird offer for booking onto this years Santa Dash is October 31st? As always a group of us will be joining in the fun so feel to sign up and join us on the day.

If you need some practice in readiness, why not join our Thursday am walking /running sessions? Each week you are teamed up with an appropriately paced group to walk/run a minimum of 3-5k in an hour (further if you are able).

Check out the meeting places (below) for the next half term and let us know to expect you if you should like to join us.

Continuing the subject of Christmas please note that final deposits (£19) for our Christmas /New Year party on 3rd Jan will be due in late November. Therefore please do start bringing these into classes after the hols. Menu choices are also to be made in advance - so do see Di in classes for this.

And Finally...

If you need something to keep you going through these impending winter months, how about booking onto our Class Fitness Spring holiday to Portugal's Algarve coast?

In conjunction with 'Love My Leisure' we're putting on a spa/leisure mini break to Pestana Dom Joao II Beach Resort in April 2020.

For those of you who have been with us since the 'Rosemary Conley' days you will know that Jane took a couple of groups out here a few years ago and gave it rave reviews.

So here's the plan:

We depart on Thursday 2nd April and Return Home on Tuesday 7th April (5 nights stay)

Accomodation costs for the 5 nights will be £497 to include:

  • Breakfast and evening meal – Half board.

  • Champagne Breakfast

  • FREE unlimited tea, coffee and hot chocolate between 10.30am – 6pm.

  • FREE unlimited local spirits, house wines, Sangria,beer & soft drinks between 6pm – 11pm.

  • 3 x 25 minute Beauty treatments.

  • Extra treatments are available at reasonable prices.

  • Unlimited use of hotel facilities.

  • FREE coach transfer from Faro airport (subject to certain flights).

  • Exclusive local Restaurant discounts

  • Daily exercise sessions with Di

(please note : approx £45 will be deducted off this price per person for every multiple of 10 we get booked on!)

Bookings will be secured with a £50 deposit ASAP but full payment is not required until 1st March 2020.

Return Flights on these dates are currently available from Manchester Airport for approximately £130 - exact details of which flights to book onto are yet to be confirmed.

If you are interested do take a look at the 'Love my Leisure' website https://www.lovemyleisure.com/portugal and then email Di ASAP to show your interest and to find out more details about how to go about booking.

A minimum of 15 people need to show interest for this to go ahead but please don't feel it's restricted to Class Fitness class goers only - feel free to share with friends and family who would enjoy a girly, pampering trip! The more the merrier!

So on that note of sunshine and holidays ....I'd best go get my case packed....

Have a fun-filled, healthy half term break.

See you all in November
