Week beginning 20 May and agility

We had our last Zumba class with the lovely Sylvia on Wednesday. Sylvia was able to cover for me while I was recovering from my hip replacement. Great fun – thank you so much Sylvia! I am back on Wednesdays from this week although not quite as bouncy as Sylvia.

Improving agility
Agility is not just for sports people it is important to keep practising agility because improved reaction times and balance save you from injury or falls. You can have more fun playing with your grandchildren, dancing or having a game of badminton if you have maintained your agility. Here are 4 exercises you can do:

Cost of classes
Unfortunately, I have had to increase the cost of Pilates and Zumba to £6 and stop the 12 for 10 package. Rents, music licence, Mailchimp, insurance, Zumba licence and Gymcatch have all increased. The music licence alone is over £600 per year! You will be able to use up the remaining class credits on your package.
