I normally send my weekly Newsletter out on Sunday mornings but as I will be away on a training course in Brighton it is coming out today. Normally this time of year, since my Relapsing Remitting MS diagnosis and the death of my beautiful son Yianni in 2016, I have taken myself off to a therapeutic retreat in the mountains of Turkey. It really helped a lot but hopefully Brighton will do me the world of good too as we are training to teach Relaxation and Meditation so I should be super chilled by the end of the weekend!
Diary and start point changes
Thursdays 6.30pm Nordic Walking new start point Leyland Tescos Extra from 17 September
This is due to reduction in parking available and getting ready for the darker evenings.
Friday 18 September No Zoom classes or White Coppice Walk
I am away on the training course in Brighton which I am really looking forward to. Sorry there are no Friday Zoom classes or White Coppice Walk.
No Saturday 19 September Nordic Walking
Unfortunately my lovely cover teacher Fiona is not well with a sore throat so obviously due to COVID guidelines we have to cancel.
No Fresh Air Fit 9.30am Monday 21 September
Sorry no class as I am travelling back from Brighton.
Monday 21 September Nordic Walking on as usual 6.30pm meet Worden Park.
I will be back by then and after a day sitting on the train I will really need to walk with you. From Monday 28 September our start point will be Tescos Buckshaw.
Tuesday 22 September 11.30am Nordic Walking new start point
Again due to parking shortages on Worden Park we will change our start point to Leyland Tesco’s Extra on the side near the chip shop.
Indoor classes have started!
We started back indoors on Wednesday. It felt wonderful! Thanks everyone for coming and following the guidelines. We are starting evening classes this coming week on Tuesday 22 September with Zumba at 6.30pm and Pilates at 7.30pm at Leyland Methodist Church Hall.

Gymcatch for booking all face to face classes
Because of the government regulations a booking system is in place for all face to face classes as we can no longer do ‘paying at the door’ and we need to have a way to trace everyone with contact details. The booking system can be found on https://gymcatch.com/ -go to this web-site and click the red ‘book’ button on the top right hand side. Search for Do Fitness.
Nordic Walkers please bring your own poles (let me know if you need to borrow disinfected ones). All classes are following guidelines on social distancing.
Pilates class members please bring your own mats.
