Christmas News and a bit more...


Now I know it's not Christmas just yet but I wanted to give you a heads up on a couple of events and bits and bobs happening so you can get your diaries out and get planning....


1st up - end of term dates....


If you head over to www.gymcatch.com you'll see that all classes between now and the Christmas break are all published and available to book.


This year our last classes will be in the week of Monday 13th - Thursday 16th Dec.


As is tradition, all Christmas week classes will be xmas themed and will be as follows:


Monday 13th 6.30-7.30pm @ Upton URC, Candlelight Pilates (flowing/ stretches)

Tuesday 14th 9.30-10.30am @ St Columbas Church Hall, Christmas Aerobics Routine in Burn n Firm

Tuesday 14th 11.15-12.15 @ St Columbas Church Hall, Relaxing Pilates (flowing/ stretches )

Tuesday 14th 1.30-2.30pm @ Hoole Community Centre, Relaxing Pilates (slow /stretches)

Wednesday 15th 1.30-2.30pm @ All Saints Church Hall, Fitsteps Christmas Dances

Wednesday 15th 6.30-7.30pm @ Upton URC, Advent Hiit workout with Advent Abdominals

Thursday 16th 6.30-7.30pm @ Upton Community Hall, Fitsteps Christmas Dances


In all of these classes, Christmas themed outfits are encouraged or at least you can borrow a santa hat!


 


In addition to the themed classes that week, we've also got a couple of opportunities to get together for a festive nibble and tipple...




Both events are on Tuesday 14th Dec and are as follows:

  1. Festive snacks and tea /coffee will be served between the Burn n Firm Class ending @ 10.30am and Pilates starting @ 11.15am at St Columbas Church Hall. All participants from both classes (and anyone else who'd like to join us) would be most welcome.

  2. An 'evening meal' get together is planned for anyone who would like to join us (no matter what class you attend) at The Ring 'O' Bells Pub in Christleton. This is in their outdoor Tipi (so do wrap up warm) and costs £25 for 2 courses or £30 for 3 (no drinks included in the price). The booking is for 7pm arrival and 7.45pm sit down. Numbers are limited to 34 and spaces are being sold via Gymcatch @ £25 (please head to Dec 14th and it is listed as a scheduled event for that day). Please note you cannot use any class passes to pay for this purchase and once deposits are paid to the Ring O Bells, the deposit of £5 cannot be refunded to you in the event of cancellation.


 

If you can't wait that long to get into the festive spirit however, or are unable to join us on Tuesday 14th, how about joining us for this year's Chester Santa Dash....





This year it is taking place on Sunday 5th December and once again supports 2 fabulous, local charities: The Hospice of the Good Shepherd and The Countess Charity.


Places don't have to be booked through me, just head over to the following website and get yourselves booked in: https://www.chestersantadash.com/


Then let us know to expect you and we'll arrange a meeting point for team 'Class Fitness'.


And as always, we'll head to a local cafe after the event to enjoy a brew (and maybe even a cake) together!!


It's a fabulous event for getting you in the mood for Christmas and is an achievable route for all (including kids and dogs). So do encourage your family and friends along too.



 

And finally...


If you are stuck for Christmas present ideas for yourself ... why not keep this date and event in mind as something to look forward to next year.





Strictly stars Anton Du Beke and Giovanni Pernice are heading to New Brighton's Floral Pavillion on Tuesday 19th July 2022 in their upcoming show: Him and Me


Tickets are currently available at £40.75 to £52.75 and tomorrow I plan to book at least 20 places and try to negotiate a good deal on block booking.


So for all our Fitsteps class members (or indeed any of you that love strictly) do let me know if you'd be interested in joining us for what I'm sure will be a memorable night out!
