Welcome back! Indoor classes start again May 17th. Time to book your class!

I am delighted to say we can resume our indoor classes at Civic Hall, Cottingham from Monday May 17th 2021.  I can’t wait to see you all, it’s been such a long time.  I plan to run the same timetable as last year.  We still have to have reduced class numbers and adhere to strict government guidelines for a 5 week period indoors.  Classes must be pre booked and paid for in advance.  I can take a maximum of 2 weeks advanced bookings.  If all goes well, all restrictions will be lifted from June 21st.  So it’s now time to start booking your classes as follows:

If you have recently attended the outdoor dance fitness classes can you please book your classes from Tuesday 4th May after 1pm.  Please ring/text  Katrina on 07910 797527, email katrina@fitness-vibe.co.uk or message direct.  Please note if you are already booked into the outdoor sessions w/c 4th May I am happy to take your bookings there and then at the class by card or cash.

Further bookings can be done from Thursday 6th May after 1pm when the booking system will be fully open.  To book your classes ring/text Katrina on 07910 797527, email katrina@fitness-vibe.co.uk or message direct.  I hope to see lots of familiar faces and welcome new members.  I may need to do back to back classes with the help of Gaynor, Catherine and Helen to accommodate everyone if needed.

Here is the weekly schedule at a glance:

Monday morning          Fitness Gold (keep fit) 11am venue TBC

Monday evening          Zumba 6pm & 7pm Civic Hall, Cottingham

Outdoor Dance Fitness Classes now available

Outdoor Dance Fitness Classes now available

I am pleased to announce we can now run outdoor dance fitness classes. They are proving a big success and I am thinking of adding more sessions to the timetable.  I still have some availability on a Tuesday morning and there may be some availability in a couple of weeks on a Thursday?   The outdoor dance fitness classes with some availability are :

Tuesday morning 11am outdoor dance fitness/keep fit at Cottingham Sports Centre, King George V Playing fields, Northgate, Cottingham.

Thursday morning 11am outdoor dance fitness/Zumba Gold at Cottingham Sports Centre, King George V Playing fields, Northgate, Cottingham (currently full but I am still taking names as I expect there to be some spaces from mid April).

I am hoping to offer a Monday evening 5.45pm outdoor dance fitness/zumba class and also a Wednesday evening 5.45pm outdoor Legs Bums and Tums class in the near future.  I am just waiting for confirmation from the venue.  Morning outdoor classes are £4.50 and evening outdoor classes will be £5.  Payment can be made on the day by cash or card but booking is essential.  We are no longer allowed walk in classes and must have a formally organised class with a booking system, following Covid secure guidelines as per government rules.

Please contact Katrina on 07910 797527, email katrina@fitness-vibe.co.uk to check  availability.

 

 

 

 

Latest government announcement about the re-opening of indoor group exercise classes

Latest government announcement about the re-opening of indoor group exercise classes

“springing forward into new beginnings”

We are all desperate for our indoor group exercise classes to start again.  I know you have all really missed dancing together in a live, face to face class environment.

The latest government announcement states that organised outdoor group exercise classes can take place from Monday March 29th under Covid secure restrictions.

Indoor group exercise classes can take place with restrictions from Monday 17th May.  We will still have to have restricted numbers per surface area.  Have good ventilations.  We will have to be socially distanced and wear masks on entering the building, no gathering before and after class etc.

From June 21st 2021 if everything goes well, the government hope that all restrictions can be lifted.  Therefore we may be able to run our indoor group exercise classes with no restrictions in place.  How great would that be!

Take care everyone

Happy 10 Year Fitness Vibe Anniversary Wed 3 March 2021!

Happy 10 Year Fitness Vibe Anniversary Wed 3 March 2021!

Wednesday 3rd March 2021 is our 10 year Fitness Vibe Anniversary!  Thanks to everyone who has supported the classes throughout the 10 years and it’s fabulous that lots of you are still at class now.  I had such big plans to celebrate in style with you all but on March 16th 2020 everything changed when we were forced to close our classes.

Hopefully we will make up for it and have a lovely celebration all together later in the year.  Indoor group exercise is allowed to start again hopefully from Monday 17th May.

See you soon!

Big Thank You!

Big Thank You!

What a lovely surprise when Alison Richards turned up at my house yesterday with these gorgeous flowers, and bubbly.  Wednesday 3rd March is my 10 year Fitness Vibe Anniversary.  I had such big plans to celebrate in style with you all, but then everything changed of course.  Thank you ladies, this has really cheered me up in lieu of what I would have done in normal circumstances.

We will make up for it and have a fabulous celebration later in the year when we can all be back together again.

10 year Zinversaary

10 year Zinversaary

Look what appeared in my emails this week from Zumba HQ – my 10 year Zinversary badge!  I can’t believe I did my Zumba training 10 years ago.  As many of you know I was hoping to do something really special to celebrate with you all in March (we actually started our Zumba classes on March 3rd 2011).  Hopefully we can celebrate in some format when we return to our live face to face classes.  Thanks to everyone who has supported my classes over the past 10 years, some of you still come to class now which is fabulous.  I still love teaching the Zumba programme and look forward to the next 10 years!

Step back in time!

Step back in time!

How about this throwback picture.  Here is our lovely Fitness Body instructor Helen Burdin pictured here way back in 1994 at the annual Blackpool Fitness Convention.  What a fabulous picture, don’t you agree?  The Blackpool event still takes place to this day bringing Instructors together from all over the UK.  I believe the event this year had to be held online.

I popped this picture with an accompanying post on our social media page and it was lovely receiving messages from lots of pioneer instructors from around the 80’s and 90’s.  We have all been sharing memories and old pictures.

If you would like to see more of Helen above, she teaches our weekly Legs Bums and Tums classes every Tuesday evening 6.30pm – 7.15pm at Civic Hall, Cottingham.  At the moment all live classes are on hold due to the government restrictions.  However we have Helen teaching pre recorded Legs Bums and Tums videos filmed recently at the Civic Hall in the video shop of this website.  If you think you would like to use the videos please register in the video site of this website.  I will then give you access to them.  Each video can be used as many times as you like within a 7 day period so is great value at £4 a video.  You can pay direct in the website and receive them or I can arrange for you to pay by bank transfer/payment link or cheque if that suits you best.  I can easily  programme your video ready from my system so you simply have it ready to play in the video site.  Just get back to me if you would like this option.

Great photo Helen!

“Ahoy there!”  Fitness Vibe team have been busy this week filming in the Civic Hall.  We are happy to announce that we now have a new batch of videos for you to use at home.  All you need to do is register in the video section of the website.  Once I can see you have registered I will give you access to the videos and send you a text.

We have 5 videos in the shop – all our usual class styles and the content will be updated regularly.  The videos are all £4 each and expire after a 7 day period when you have the option to buy again.  You can pay by PayPal or bank card in the video site and it’s very customer friendly.  I do have the facility to set the videos ready to play for you if you would prefer to pay by payment link or bank transfer to me direct.  Simply contact me on 07910 797527 if you need this service, no worries.  The videos are streamed through the website so will be compatible with a large screen smart TV.

I look forward to returning to outdoor/indoor classes as soon as restrictions are lifted but in the meantime please take a look at the new video shop and keep yourself moving.

Hope you can use the new video shop ladies.

Take care
