Happy New Year!

We are all ready to get back to exercise after Christmas! Having some time off makes us realise how important exercise is for feeling good. I have taken a couple of weeks off from energetic exercise to give my body a rest as the rest of the year it is pretty non-stop. I have enjoyed going for walks though and gentle swims as doing nothing wasn’t an option. I have noticed though with the change in exercise pattern and granny’s Christmas cake even my baggy pyjamas are feeling a bit tight!! Looking forward to getting back into an exercise routine.

There is so much about New Year’s resolutions at the moment. Usually what happens we make unrealistic resolutions and very quickly feel like we have failed. Instead of setting yourself up to fail we need to think about realistic and achievable goals so we feel like we are succeeding. Also listen to your body too because if you don’t you end up with injuries which take you back to the beginning.

Classes start Monday 4th January
Classes start tomorrow Monday 4th January for details see calendar http://dofitness.org/events/
or timetable http://dofitness.org/timetable-2/

New classes
Chair Based – Mondays 1.15pm- from 18th January
We are starting a new Chair Based Class on Monday 18th January at 1.15pm at Prospect House, Sandy Lane, Leyland PR25 2EE. This is a gentle class including cardio exercises, balance and strength. It is for all ages and there will be younger people attending who need a gentler class due to health conditions. I will try to think up a more imaginative name in the future!

50+ Circuits -Fridays 2.15pm- from 22 January
Yes our new 50+ Circuits is starting on Friday 22 January at 2.15pm at Leyland Methodist Church, Turpin Green Lane, Leyland PR25 3HA. Great sociable way to exercise.

Time Change
Thursday night Zumba is changing to 6.45pm start from 21 January. Less of a rush to get there from work!

All the best for 2106!

Lots of love
