Week beginning 14 September

Hello everyone,

Ok I will start with the serious bit. The prime minister’s announcement last week of maximum group size going back to 6 on Monday 14 September does not apply to our classes. Our classes are what is known as COVID-19 Secure, that is, we are following all the government and industry guidelines.  That is why there is a booking system (for Track and Trace), that is why we do not share equipment and there are no cash payments (reduces the risk of contamination via surface contact), it is why you are reminded about maintaining your distance, and why I have done all the risk assessments and so on. Thank you so much for your help and support with all this!

Training out doors has been an unexpected blessing of the recent months. Of course we cannot always guarantee the weather but tomorrow looks good for Fresh Air Fit -Monday 14 September at 9.30am.

Indoor morning classes starting next week!
We are starting back indoors next week. I am excited to have our lovely indoor classes back on Wednesday morning 16 September. Of course it will be different and numbers are more limited. In fact Zumba at 9.30am is already full. There are spaces in Pilates 10.30am and Zumba Gold 11.30am I want to thank the staff Matt and Paul at the Methodist Church Hall for all their hard work to make this possible.
Here are your guidelines for a safe session:
Please book and pay on-line to come https://gymcatch.com/  
Do not enter the building until a couple of minutes before class start times
Please enter the building through the bottom door and leave through the top
Please bring your own mat for Pilates
Masks are not encouraged during your exercise session so can be removed once you are ready to start the class. They can be worn entering and leaving the building.
Please maintain your 2 meters distance at all times
Please hand sanitize before entering the building and use the hand sanitizers in the building.

Friday 18 September No  Zoom classes
I am away on a training course in Brighton which I am really looking forward to. Sorry there are no Friday Zoom classes or White Coppice Walk. I am a little bit nervous about travelling as our world has got much smaller during the last 6 months and the furthest I have been is White Coppice and our annual holiday to the same place in Wales. The training is part of the Wellbeing Coach qualification looking at Relaxation, Meditation and Mindfulness techniques. I should be totally chilled out by the end of the weekend!

Guest Instructor Saturday 19 September Nordic Walking 10am
The lovely Fiona is running the Nordic Walking group on Saturday. This will only be for people with their own poles.

Evening Indoor classes starting Tuesday 22 September
We will start Zumba 6.30pm and Pilates 7.30pm on Tuesday 22 September. 
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.
