Our 1 week summer break and Fresh Air Fit

 

Dear lovely Do Fitness class members,

There will be no classes week beginning 14th August.
Our annual summer week off is week beginning 14th August. Everything will be back to normal on Monday 21 August

Change of venue – Monday morning 31 July
We will move from the Methodist Church Hall to Prospect House, Sandy Lane, Leyland PR25 2EE on Monday 31st July. This is for 1 week only.

Fresh Air Fit and Nordic Walking
As you know  I have been talking about an outdoor exercise class for some time. This is just a reminder of what I have spoken about before:
I believe we need to be in outdoors more. Not just for fresh air and being in nature which is really good for us but it is about sunlight and its positive effects on the body. Part of my MS therapy includes the optimum levels of D3. The best way to increase your D3 levels is exposure of your skin to sunshine. Supplements can also be taken to increase levels but sunlight is the best. It is estimated that about 60% of the population in the UK are D3 deficient. This can have a significant impact on your health eg bone density or depression.

So we are going to have an outdoor circuits class called Fresh Air Fit  and Nordic Walking. Taster sessions for Nordic Walking will happen after the summer break and the start date for Fresh Air Fit will be announced soon. Fresh Air Fit will be on the Folly Cafe lawn at Worden Park on Saturday mornings. I am so excited to be offered this lovely place to do our class at. The Folly has amazingly healthy food and the girls who run it, Lisa and Paula are always so friendly and nothing is too much trouble.

Seated Pilates
Wednesdays 1.30pm St Ambrose Church Hall, Moss Lane, Leyland PR25 4XA and Fridays 2.15pm St Andrews Church Hall Worden Lane Leyland PR25 3EL

Over the years I have seen the need for a Seated Pilates class. For some people getting up and down of the floor is uncomfortable or they feel nauseous exercising on the floor. My awareness of the need for this class has grown with dealing with my symptoms of MS which affect my balance amongst other things!

Chairfit
Mondays 1.15pm Prospect House Sandy Lane Leyland PR25 2EE11.30am and Fridays Prospect House Sandy Lane Leyland PR25 2EE

These are really fun classes and ideal if you have got any hip or knee joint problems or any balance issues. They are also great pre and post operative hip and knee surgery.

Love to everyone

No classes Bank Holiday Monday 29th May, pelvic floor and more

Dear lovely Do Fitness class members
The experience of going to the retreat in Turkey did me the world of good. It was in a mountainous region in the forest near Dalaman. We had freshly made fruit and vegetable juices, yoga and forest walks. I couldn’t help myself but I taught a few Pilates classes for them in the outdoors overlooking an olive grove. Beautiful! It certainly helped improve my MS symptoms. My limp had almost completely gone by then end of the week. However  I am still having problems with my left hand so that means I have been banned from trying to use knives in the kitchen as I am going end up with no finger tips!

Pelvic Floor Seminar.
We have the international presenter Cherry Baker booked now!  She is in such demand that the first date she could offer was 17th November. I have booked a room with a bar and we hope to make it into a bit of a social event. It would be a bit like stand up comedy where you learn lots.

Nordic Walking
I have been talking about an outdoor exercise class for some time. I believe we need to be in outdoors more. Not just for fresh air and being in nature which is really good for us but it is about sunlight and its positive effects on the body. Part of my MS therapy includes the optimum levels of D3. The best way to increase your D3 levels is exposure of your skin to sunshine. Supplements can also be taken to increase levels but sunlight is the best. It is estimated that about 60% of the population in the UK are D3 deficient. This can have a significant impact on your health eg bone density or depression.
I started Nordic Walking about 2 month ago and love it. You can go in groups or by yourself once you have done a bit of basic training. I am going to train as an instructor in June and hope to offer this now as our out door option. So excited! You know I love training courses!

Zumba Choreography
The way Donna and I get some of our ideas is to watch other instructors. I took inspiration from this instructor as he used quite a few Bollywood moves which I love. I promised to send you this clip for you to see the choreography. I have adapted it too for Fridays Chairfit. (Sorry he has no shirt on!)
