We periodically run courses throughout the year. Some of our courses/programmes are being delivered online via Zoom or Facebook, some face to face in the community.

Fitness Pilates

Why do Fitness Pilates?

Doing a regular Fitness Pilates workout is a great way to change the shape of your body. Incorporated with a healthy diet and regular cardio exercise, doing pilates will help to tone your body and make your muscles longer and leaner over time.

Pilates uses controlled movements, primarily focused in your "core"  to build body strength, flexibility and endurance. It's a body conditioning routine that won't result in bulky muscles. Instead, the movements serve to lengthen your muscles as it strengthens them. Our Fitness Pilates is mat-based, where you do a series of movements using a mat on the floor. Pilates has the power to dramatically transform the way your body looks. It will give you a sleek, toned body with a flattened abdomen and slender thighs in addition to better posture.

Any form of exercise will benefit you not only physically, but mentally as well. Pilates is no exception. Pilates teaches you to control and balance your body and mind, often focusing on the quality of a movement rather than the quantity, so you're getting both a physical and mental workout in your exercise.

Pilates' power also lies in the fact that anyone can do it. It isn't high impact and there is little jarring and stress placed upon your body.

Why do Lift Lean?

Menopausal or beyond?

​Do you find that you can’t lose weight like you used to be able to?

​SlimFit Lift Lean is a different approach to training. This resistance workout will get your heart rate up and improve body shape, improve self esteem & mood, increase bone density & help prevent osteoporosis, help lift brain fog and so much more.

If you only have 20-25 minutes a day to work out and are aged 40+ this is the workout that will make a difference

This course is delivered in a Private Facebook Group, with daily 20-25 minute workouts – some live and some pre-recorded, along with ‘menopause and beyond’ nutritional and well being information.

Barre Pilates

Why do Barre Pilates?

Barre workouts are a low impact class to strengthen your body.  The Barre Pilates Method simplifies complex ballet technique and combines it with Pilates, body conditioning and stretches to deliver a safe, effective, flowing workout for everyone, with no need of dance experience.  This non-impact workout uses both a ballet barre or chair and the mat and targets all major muscle groups.

Benefits include:
  • Improvement to standing posture and spinal alignment
  • Helping to increase your bone density
  • Stabilisation and strengthening of joints
  • Stabilisation of deep core muscles to alleviate and prevent back pain
  • Challenging the muscular endurance of the entire body
  • Increasing flexibility, coordination, and balance
  • Burning calories while gaining lean muscle 

What does a typical class look like?
Classes are an hour long and start with a gentle 5-10 minute standing warm up, followed by a further 20-30 minutes of standing exercises to focus on the lower body. The class then progresses on to mat work (targeting core and upper body) finishing with a lovely long stretch.

You will need a mat, a chair and some water and can wear whatever you feel comfortable in.  You can do Barre Pilates with your trainers on if you wish, but we recommend trying the class either barefoot or with some ‘grippy’ Pilates/Yoga socks as its great to get a good workout for the feet too!
