Classes week beginning 20 September

Welcome to our new class members who started last week! You will find everyone is really friendly and I love hearing everyone chatting as you wait for your class to start or on our Nordic Walks. 

Next Nordic Walking Technique Course Saturday 25 September 1pm- Worden Park
Just such a wonderful way to exercise outdoors and it is sociable too. Book by going to Book a class – Do Fitness with Diane Oakden Poles are loaned to you for the Technique Course.

Memorial service for Eric
Our lovely class member Eric Nixon passed away last year after a short illness. He was much loved and I saw him every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at Circuits classes along with his wife Zoe. He only didn’t attend if he was away on holiday! I personally really miss him and I still have the ‘buzzer timer’ that had made for me to let everyone know a minute was up. The service will this afternoon Sunday 19 September at 3pm at Leyland Methodist Church Turpin Green Lane, Leyland. Everyone welcome.

Chorley Zumba Gold Starting Tuesday 28 September 1.30pm – Primrose Gardens, Fleet Street 
I am excited to be able to offer this class again for my lovely Chorley Zumba Gold group but in a beautiful venue with a sprung floor specially made for a dance class. There is parking on Fleet Street or at Asda. Entrance on Fleet Street.

Cancelling a class
If you book a class and need to cancel please do that on Gymcatch and it will give you a class credit. 

Self Care September
Looking after yourself is so important in order to be able to care for others. I know many people in my classes have caring responsibilities – partners with health conditions, childcare responsibilities with grandchildren and parents who need support.
This month Action for Happiness Action for Happiness has a campaign called Self-care September. I think there are some really good reminders in the calendar.
They say: Self-care isn’t selfish, it’s essential.  Self-care increases our resilience and helps us get more out of life.  

Teddies for local MS Society
One of my lovely class members Judith has been busy knitting tiny Teddies to raise funds for our local MS Society. The Chorley and Leyland MS Society really helped me when I was first diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS and I was very unwell and frightened. The Teddies will be for available in class. Donation £2.50
